Dragan Bender 12 Points/6 Assists Full Highlights (4/9/2019)

Is this it for Dragan Bender in a Suns uniform? I haven’t heard any rumors one way or the other, so all involved parties must be keeping tight lips about the whole thing (or my insider sources in the Suns organization are screwing off and wooing cheerleaders instead of trying to dig up dirt on…

Dragan Bender 19 Points Full Highlights (4/7/2019)

Unlike Dragan Bender’s last game, where he added seven blocks and six assists to his total of eleven points, this game was not nearly as stat-stuffed. The only “miscellaneous” stat the Bender accrued here was one steal. Otherwise, he was all about scoring; nineteen points is two higher than his previous season high of seventeen….

Is this it for Dragan Bender? Are we seeing the last few games of his NBA career before he schlepps back over to Europe, never to return? The Suns, as we should all know by now, declined to pick up the last year of his rookie deal. He’s a free agent after this season, a…

“Dear Diary, I struggle to believe it, but the young Croatian, Bender, has played passibly well in three consecutive games.
