The Golden State Warriors are signing Dragan Bender to a second 10-day contract, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

Bender’s first 10-day contract expired after the team’s game on March 3.

Bender played six games in his first 10-day contract and averaged 7.5 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game in 23.3 minutes per game.

Head coach Steve Kerr recently spoke about Bender’s potential and how he has helped the team.

“He’s got a lot of potential,” Kerr said. “Obviously, fourth pick in the draft, there’s a reason for that. He’s shown in the 10 days if you give him a little confidence, you give him a chance to play and gain some confidence, he can do a lot of good things out there. He’s helped us win two games in a season when we’ve not won a whole lot of games.”
