According to the Arizona Republic, rookies Dragan Bender and Marquese Chriss could see time in the D-League this season.
This is would be pretty interesting if the Suns do choose to send both of their top-8 rookies to the D-League. There has also been rumblings that Bender, who stands at 7’1, could see minutes at the small forward position now that P.J. Tucker will be out to start the season after undergoing back surgery. Both he (Bender) and Chriss are raw talents, so it’ll be interesting to see what roles they will have in the Suns rotation this season.
