Ghanaian duo Ben Bentil and Amida Brimah find themselves on different paths to unclear professional basketball after conflicting rankings put either player at varied spots on NBA mock draft rankings.
The latest rankings per CBS Sports pegs Bentil at 24 on the rankings three places behind Power Forward/ Center Cheik Diallo. However, the 6 foot 9 inch Forward falls way back down the rankings on other platforms with draftexpress.com ranking him 59th overall.
Brimah on the other hand will have an uphill task impressing team representatives in workouts as he is ranked way below Bentil. The 7 foot Center is ranked by CBS Sports just inside the 60 slots open for NBA drafting, at 59.
Nbadraft.net has the second year Providence University player at 43.
He completely disappears from the list of likely draftees according to draftexpress.com as he falls completely out of 92 players. Brimah, known for his shot blocking skills was expected to make the proverbial jump after spending three years at University of Connecticut.
However, both players can return to school since they did not hire an agent when they declared for the draft.
Bentil was the top scorer in the Big East Conference after he averaged 21.1 points per game whereas Brimah averaged 2.7 blocks and 6.5 points per game in the regular season after hitting 3.5 blocks and 9.1 points in 2014-2015 season.
