MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Bucks have agreed to a two-year deal with free agent forward Dragan Bender, according to a report from ESPN.

NBA reporter Adrian Wojnarowski first broke the news on Twitter:

Bender has played all of his three NBA seasons for the struggling Phoenix Suns. He has appeared in 171 games and started 64 over that span, averaging 20.3 minutes played and 5.3 points per game, with 3.8 rebounds.

The 'Croatian Sensation' stands 7'1" and played basketball in Israel before being drafted by the Suns.

Bender is the latest free agent acquisition for last year's Eastern Conference Finalists. Milwaukee has already added Robin Lopez and Wesley Matthews.
