Dragan Bender scored 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting with five rebounds, no fouls and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes during a loss to the Sixers on Thursday.
This was a much better shooting performance than he's been posting during this summer league, but he still has a long way to go with his underwhelming numbers this month. During an in-game interview tonight, GM Ryan McDonough said he believes Bender's issues are confidence based and he has to put it together this year, but the GM liked how he improved as a shooter last season. This will be his third season with the team and so far he's posted very pedestrian numbers. If he can't turn it around this year, the Suns may have to consider moving on from him. Jul 12 - 8:43 PM
