Milano is in advanced talks with Bahcesehir over Bentil per multiple sources as the Italian club bids to get a replacement for injured Forward Konstantinos Mitoglou.


Mitoglou suffered a fracture of the fifth metatarsal in his left foot and has undergone surgery is expected to be ruled out for the rest of the season.

Milano ranks third in the Euroleague standings and Bentil’s scoring touch makes him an ideal replacement for the injured Mitoglou.

Bentil has experience competing in the Euroleague where he averaged 2.6 rebounds and 6.0 points across 31 games mainly off the bench for Panathinaikos.
