DRAGAN
BENDER

Phoenix Suns • 2016-17
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)

If the Warriors are doing this second bubble thing (bad idea! please don't do it! please don't send Steph!) ... does that mean Dragan Bender stays on the team? This is an honest question I'm not trying to be snarky. I like Dragan Bender!

Thinking about a substitute for @DeAndre: John Egbunu is one possibility. Played C for Long Island, knows system. Other GLeaguers: Donta Hall, Simi Shittu and Christ Koumadje who was GLeague DPOY and is 7’4”. Also, Dragan Bender who’d been on Warrior 10-day and has 187 NBA games.

Golden State is now $310K below the luxury tax after the Mychal Mulder contract. The Chasson Randle 10-Day expires on Thursday and Dragan Bender on Saturday. There is a $91,557 tax hit for every 10-Day signed. A Bender rest of the season contract on Sunday would cost $293K.

Mychal Mulder won’t sign his second 10-day today. Like with Dragan Bender, makes more sense for Warriors to wait until a gameday (they next play on Tuesday) to stretch control of second 10-day as long as possible.
