The potential move was first reported Thursday.
As the Warriors season winds down, they plan to get a look at a number of players.
"I know we have a list of players who we'd like to take a look at," coach Steve Kerr told reporters Tuesday night. "We'll see how that all pans out.
"But there's a good chance that over the last couple months of the season we take a look at some different players. That's the idea."
Bender started the season with the Milwaukee Bucks, but he was waived Feb. 10 after appearing in just seven games.
The 22-year-old did play in 13 G League contests with the Wisconsin Herd, averaging 20.5 points and 8.9 rebounds while shooting over 38 percent from deep.

His best season was in 2017-18 when he averaged 6.5 points and 4.4 rebounds over 25.2 minutes per game.
