The end of Keith Benson's Italian job?
Benson was drafted No. 48 by Atlanta in June's draft.
Roto World hypothesized Benson's struggles in Italy could mean he has a chance of being cut by the Hawks, whenever the NBA season resumes.
Benson, like many of this year's picks, opted for fancier pastures, signing with the club in mid-August.
Benson led the Golden Grizzlies to back-to-back conference regular-season and tournament championships and subsequent NCAA tournament appearances.
Prior to the draft, Benson had been rumored to be selected as a high as a lottery pick. Benson, also the league's top defensive player a season ago, averaged 17.9 points and 10.1 rebounds per game.
