Larry Sanders is officially a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The team officially announced Sanders’ signing in a press release. Subsequently, the Cavs waived center Andrew Bogut. Bogut broke his tibia 58 seconds into his first game with the Cavs.
Sanders, 28, is expected to be in attendance for tomorrow’s Cavs-Pistons game, but he likely won’t play according to The Athletic’s Jason Lloyd. Sanders is expected to spend time the D-League with the Canton Charge before the playoffs begin.
Sanders was the 15th overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft by the Milwaukee Bucks. In five NBA seasons - all with the Bucks - Sanders averaged 6.5 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.8 blocks per game. He last played during the 2014-15 season. He was second in the NBA in blocks during the 2012-13 season. During the early stages of his comeback, Sanders also worked out the Celtics, Lakers and other unknown teams.
