RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

There was no outlook written for Jonathan Bender.

2005-06

Pacers Team President Donnie Walsh has made a number of savvy personnel moves in his time, but the draft day trade for Bender might rank among his biggest regrets, if not mistakes, at least in terms of opportunity costs. Only once in his career has Bender played at least 60 games in a season, and he's never averaged more than 10 points per game in a season. Much of Bender's non-production can be attributed to his health issues and some of it can be blamed on the Pacers' depth, but the fact remains that he hasn't been able to consistently produce. While we've seen occasional glimpses of his potential, Bender is now at a crossroads in his career; if a breakthrough doesn't happen this year, it may never happen.

2004-05

The trade of Al Harrington to the Hawks creates a window of opportunity for Bender to play more often, if he can only stay healthy. That's always been the rub for Bender, who has only played 67 games combined over the last two seasons. A sore knee has already limited him during the preseason.

2003-04

A pivotal year for Bender - is this the year he can consistently get 25-30 minutes per game? The coaching change certainly can't hurt Bender, as his development had to be hampered by Isiah Thomas' uneven rotations. Ron Mercer's departure also will help him.
