Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv signed Dragan Bender to a three-month contract with an option for the remainder of the 2020-21 season, the Israeli powerhouse announced Sunday confirming previous reports. Bender, 22, was with the Yellows from 2014 to 2016 prior to making the NBA jump. Deciding to return at least until December brings him back to the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague after his seven 2015-16 appearances and to the Israeli league as well.
Dragan Bender — A monumental bust as the fourth overall pick in 2016, Bender still has a chance to make it. Believe it or not, he’s only 22. The Bucks reluctantly waived him when Marvin Williams became available, and he had played serviceably on a 10-day contract with Golden State when the league shut down. I’d expect the Warriors to sign him to a multi-year deal similar to the ones Mychal Mulder and Juan Toscano-Anderson inked.

Warriors eyeing James Wiseman

A league source said the Warriors have Wiseman at the top of their draft board; understandable considering forward Dragan Bender, a late-season addition via two 10-day contracts, is the only 7-footer on the roster and 6’9″ Kevon Looney is the only listed center. But none of the executives surveyed put Wiseman in the category of Dwight Howard or even Deandre Ayton, big men capable of playing a significant role on Day 1.
