Cavaliers invite Larry Sanders to town for workout, could strike a deal

Today, the NBA’s defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers invited former Milwaukee Bucks Center Larry Sanders to town for a workout session.

According to Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio and Amico Hoops, if the Cavs like what they see in Sanders, they’ll likely begin discussing a deal.

Sanders, 28, hasn’t played in the NBA since his days with the Bucks during the 2014-15 season. Through his 233 career games played in the association, the 6-foot-11 center holds averages of 6.5 points (48% shooting) and 5.8 rebounds.

Sanders’ best season as a pro came in the 2012-13 campaign, when he averaged 9.8 points on 50.6 percent shooting from the field, 9.5 rebounds, and 2.8 blocks (2nd in the NBA) in 71 games played.

The Cavs, who are currently without the services of Kevin Love for five to six more weeks due to a knee injury, are known to be seeking a backup rim protector, and Sanders could be their man. He has high upside and would be a formidable force in the paint. The champs will have the option to offer the former first round pick (15th in 2010 by Milwaukee) out of Virginia Commonwealth University a 10-day contract, or simply sign him outright for the remainder of the season.
