Dragan Bender had signed two 10-day contracts with Golden State Warriors before the NBA decided to suspend the season due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Croatian prospect had a great 9-game stint during his limited time with the “Dubs” averaging 9.0 points per game on 43.7% shooting, along with grabbing 5.9 rebounds a game.
According to Keith Smith of Yahoo Sports, Warriors have an interest to add “early free-agent addition” for 2020-21. However, several NBA teams like what the 22-years old did with the Golden State, per Smith.
Bender was the 4th overall pick of the 2016 NBA Draft starting his career on Phoenix Suns. He also had played for the Milwaukee Bucks, before ending the season in Bay Area.
