Nancy announced Rod Benson
SLUC Nancy announced power forward Rod Benson (2.08-PF) via their official website. The french champion reinforces its ranks with Benson who comes from a good season in the NBDL with the Dakota Wizzards. He also tried his luck in this summer's Vegas Summer League with the Toronto Raptors but didn't get enough playing time.
He played college basketball in Berkeley but from then on he didn't manage to get into the NBA. He also played the 2006 and 2007 NBA Summer Leagues, but in the 2006-07 season he signed for the Austin Toros of the NBDL, from where he was released before joining the Dakota Wizards. So logically the next step was to try his luck in Europe.
He averaged 13.6 points 12.1 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in 49 games with theDakota Wizards.
