Celtics select Ben Bentil with the 51st pick

He's a stretch forward.

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Ben Bentil played right down the highway at Providence.  He's a solid stretch forward who can shoot pretty well. The bad news is that he's poor on defense and can't rebound or pass.

He's 6'8" with a 7'2" wingspan, so he's got a great NBA body.

Sounds like he'll be able to compete for a roster spot next season too.
