After being out of the NBA for around 2 years, veteran center Larry Sanders is headed back to the court.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have agreed to terms on a contract with Sanders who will fill the roster spot that opened up when Andrew Bogut broke his left leg.
Once Sanders passes his physical with team, Cleveland will waive Bogut.
Sanders, 28, has violated the league drug policy four times with positive marijuana tests and has dealt with issues with anxiety and depression.
As someone who knows first hand how anxiety and depression can impact someone’s life, it’s good to see Sanders is taking a step back to normalcy in regards to his playing career.
The Milwaukee Bucks drafted Sanders in the first round of the 2010 draft and became one of the league’s best shot blockers. Sanders finished the 2012-13 second in the NBA in blocks and has averaged 1.8 blocks per game in his career.
If Sanders can regain some of his form, the Cavs will get some much needed help not only on the defensive side of the court, but also in the rebounding department.
