The Dragon is on a Bender!

Hearing Dragan Bender is a player teams have their eyes on as an "early free agent addition" for 2020-21. The idea would be to sign him now with some guaranteed money for 20-21. Teams like what the only 22-year-old (yes, really!) did with GSW. Warriors would like to keep him too.

It's a LONG way away. I hope the Warriors get permission to work out this season so they can keep working with him and get him wanting to stay around. But I certainly don't see him as a priority.

Some Forbes writer thinks OKC should sign him. I say we hold out for Noel. Then I can have the Curry/Noel paring I was lusting for years ago. ;-)

Lol, I remember that. Actually I think Noel is a very good underrated role payer now.

Nerlens Noel is a quality starting center.

Saw him in a couple games with Warriors. He and Paschal seemed to have developed some kind of chemistry (e.g,. Paschal at bottom of the key and pass out on the perimeter to Bender to shoot the 3, and vice versa to allow Paschal to abuse those in the paint.).

I'd say we've become a ballclub who can do wonders refining and unlocking their skills/potential. Unleash the Dragon from this Bender (aka keep him for a reasonable guaranteed contract)! He's been in the league for a couple of years now, but is still only 22 years old, and has some time to find his role.

Bender is a scrub who if he’s at the end of your bench can be useful. But if we want to win Championships a guy like him is a dime a dozen.
