Is the next Kristaps Porzingis hidden in Israel? Dragan Bender is just 18 years old and stands at 7’1″. He can play both center and power forward.
Scouts say that, at his age, he’s more developed than Porzingis was. He has the skill set of a guard—scouts are amazed at his handles, his running ability and his long-range shot—and he can guard the 4 and 5 on defense. He’s expected to go in the top five in the draft and could go as high as third overall.
Watch out. Bender is coming.
