Bonsu’s former teammate at Dayton, Kostas Antetokounmpo, signed a two-way contract with the Mavericks last week.

Bonsu spent three seasons with the Flyers. He never scored a point and appeared in only two games as a senior, but he became a popular player in part because of his celebrations on the bench.
