Kyrie Irving, Cavaliers superstar point guard, was recently asked if he thinks Sanders’ skill-set would fit in with the team. The crafty ball-handler hinted that a deal for Sanders may already be in the works.
I’ll have a better answer for you when we get some practice,” Irving said of Sanders.
Sanders, 28, hasn’t played in the NBA since his days with the Milwaukee Bucks during the 2014-15 season. Through his 233 career games played in the NBA, the 6-foot-11 center holds averages of 6.5 points (48% shooting) and 5.8 rebounds.
The Cavs are currently without the services of Kevin Love for five to six more weeks due to a knee injury and are known to be seeking a backup rim protector. It seems Sanders could be their man.
Cavs Head Coach Tyronn Lue and Irving had high praise for Sanders after yesterday’s practice.
