The Cleveland Cavaliers are getting some much needed help. They are close to an agreement with free agent center Larry Sanders.
This will be Sanders first-time in the league in two-years. He previously had a work out with the team, before they decided to sign Andrew Bogut once he was bought out by the Philadelphia 76ers following a trade deadline trade.
The 28-year-old could be the newest member of the team as soon as Sunday. The Cavaliers were also considering Anderson Varejão before settling on Sanders.
They thought they had it figured out when Bogut joined Deron Williams as buy out candidates to sign with the team. Just 58 seconds into his Cavaliers career, Bogut fractured his tibia – and will miss the rest of the season and playoffs.
In order to create the roster spot, the Cavaliers have waived Bogut. Sanders walked away from the league in 2015 after dealing with anxiety, depression and mood disorders.
He averaged 6.5 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in 19.8 minutes per game. He is also a former 15th overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft.
