NBA player profile for Dragan Bender with stats and fantasy analysis

DRAGAN
BENDER

Jan. 23, 2019 - The Suns are taking a good long look at playing Dragan Bender at center while other bigs on their roster nurse injuries. Bender disappointed throughout the first few years of his career prompting Phoenix to turn down his fourth-year option last fall but that doesn't mean they won't be able to sign him back in the summer if he proves serviceable as a stretch five. Bender is worth a speculative look in deep dynasty leagues, he's still just 21 years old, but don't expect him to consistently make an impact. (@AustinKent)
