I was wayyyyyy in on Bender in that draft. This is a great opportunity for him (and for us, if we can unlock him). Love the gamble for both.

lol. He's terrible. Give the spot to a vet who can be a locker room presence instead.

No issues with this. See if Bud can unlock something. I never was huge on Bender, but like has already been said: low risk, high reward.

How is he at shooting? Literally have never paid attention to him as I always thought he was going to be a bust.

Talk about a waste of a roster spot.

Few years too late but I desperately wanted to trade up to grab this guy. Probably why I'm not a GM.

But needless to say, I'm a fan of this move. It definitely inspires more confidence than just handing the spot to Bonzie Colson.

For what purpose? This team has shown to have great chemistry and we aren't exactly a young team anymore. Majority of the guys on this roster lean on the older side. Korver, Wes, Robin are all good locker room guys who can still give meaningful minutes.

Big fan of this move. I wanted a 6th big and I wanted a developmental player. This fits both

Literally that's all they've done this offseason. You want another 35 year old dude?

this basically makes up for not having a pick in the draft. excellent pick up.
