The Cleveland Cavaliers have released power forward/center Larry Sanders. In a corresponding move, the team has signed Edy Tavares to a multi-year contract.
Tavares comes to the Cavaliers after playing in the NBA Development League. Sanders got the boot because the team did not feel like he was going to be in their rotation.
Sanders did not have any problems in his return to the NBA, according to The Vertical. He signed with the Cavaliers on March 11 when he inked a two-year deal.
In four games, he had four points, four rebounds and a block in 13 minutes. With their D-League team in Canton, Ohio, he averaged four points, eight rebounds and 2.5 blocks.
The 7-foot-3 Tavares is expected to sign a three-year deal with the team on Wednesday. With the Raptors 905 teal in the D-League, he averaged 10.9 points and 7.7 rebounds, along with 2.7 blocks on the season.
With Tristan Thompson out for the past four games due to a right thumb injury, the team needed an extra big body. The Cavaliers are also expected to rest LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love against the Toronto Raptors in the regular season finale.
