Suns View Rookie Bender as ‘Cornerstone’ Piece


Rookie Dragan Bender has played sparingly but he keeps coming up as part of the team’s best stretches.

“I love Dragan,” Watson said. “I always want to try to find a way to get him into the game. I think Dragan is going to have amazing opportunities moving forward. We understand he’s a big part of our future as a cornerstone. But the NBA is not just as easy as playing guys you like. There’s a lot of things that go into it.”
