Contrary to prior reports, Bender won't sign with CSKA Moscow after agreeing Wednesday with the NBA's Milwaukee Bucks on a two-year contract, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com.
CSKA Moscow never officially announced Bender's signing, but the 21-year-old power forward was expected to return to the EuroLeague in 2019-20 after failing to live up to expectations as a first-round pick of the Phoenix Suns. Bender will forgo a return to Europe for at least a little while longer and instead attempt to keep his NBA career alive in Milwaukee, where he'll likely be limited to a depth role while he remains on the roster.
