Larry Sanders is back in the NBA, and if the rim protector has anything left, Cleveland may forget all about that Bogut guy.
Larry Sanders has agreed on a deal to make NBA return with the Cavaliers, w/ likely 2017-18 option date, league sources tell @TheVertical.

Sanders and his agent, Joel Bell, traveled to Cleveland on Sunday, and Sanders will undergo a physical exam on Monday morning before signing the deal, league sources said. Sanders’ deal will cover the remainder of this season and likely include a guarantee trigger date for 2017-18, league sources said.
The Cavaliers must still decide whom to waive to create space for Sanders, league sources said.
The 28-year-old Sanders has been out of the league since February 2015, when he accepted a contract buyout with the Milwaukee Bucks.
That was after multiple violations of the leagues drug policy and his own admission that he dealt with depression and anxiety.
