ATLANTA (AP) — Forward Jeremy Evans, the 2012 NBA slam-dunk contest champion and six-year NBA veteran, has signed a 10-day contract with the Atlanta Hawks.
Evans averaged 15.3 points and 9.7 rebounds in 39 games with the Hawks' G League Erie affiliate this season. He was with the Hawks during training camp and played in three preseason games.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Just hours after signing rookie Ben Bentil on Monday, the Indiana Pacers waived the 6-foot-9 forward.
Bentil was one of Boston's second-round draft picks in June but was cut before the start of the season. The former Providence star wasn't expected to get much playing time and could be assigned to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants, Indiana's NBA D-League affiliate.
