Bentil in action for Reims
Ghana Center Ben Bentil and Donte DiVincenzo represent the last basketball players from American State Delaware to be drafted into the NBA.

Bentil played at St. Andrew’s and DiVincenzo played at Salesianum in High Schools in Delaware prior to getting drafted into the league.

Bentil was drafted 51st overall in 2016 and DiVincenzo was drafted 17th overall in this year’s draft after starring at Villanova.

Both players will participate in Milwaukee Bucks Training Camp ahead of the new season which tips off on October 16.

Bentil recently received an invitation to Bucks training camp after spending his professional years constantly on the move.

The 6 foot 8 inch Sekondi-born Forward played for French side Champagne Chalons-Reims and Spanish side Bilbao Basket last season.

This comes after spending time with Chinese side Xinjiang Guanghui Tigers and Fort Wayne Mad Ants in the NBA’s development league.

Bentil is the first Ghana born player to play in the NBA after a short stint with Dallas Mavericks last season.
