Larry Sanders: Waived by Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders will be waived by the Cavaliers on Wednesday, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Sanders' return to professional basketball following a two-year hiatus didn't go as planned. He ended up taking part in just five games with the Cavaliers after being signed late in the season, averaging only 2.6 minutes per contest. Sanders wasn't much more impressive in his D-League appearances, so the Cavs will cut bait and address their lack of depth at center by instead signing the 7-foot-3 Walter Tavares. Sanders should get a look from teams ahead of training camp next season, although he likely won't be guaranteed a roster spot wherever he lands.

Cavaliers' Larry Sanders: Recalled from D-League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders has been recalled from the D-League, Brian Windhorst of ESPN reports.

The Cavs have been bringing Sanders up to speed gradually, but he may be thrust into an increased role Wednesday as the team will be without Tristan Thompson, who suffered a thumb injury Tuesday against Orlando. With Andrew Bogut (leg) and Chris Andersen (knee) done for the season, Sanders is currently the Cavs' only healthy true center, though stretch-five Channing Frye also figures to see a bump in minutes Wednesday.

Cavaliers' Larry Sanders: Assigned to D-League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders was assigned to the D-League's Canton Charge on Tuesday.

After failing to see any run in the Cavs' double-overtime victory over the Pacers on Sunday, Sanders will head back to the Charge, who will play their first game in the D-League postseason Wednesday against Raptors 905. In his four appearances for the Charge this season, Sanders is averaging 6.0 points, 8.0 rebounds and 2.5 blocks in 19.4 minutes per game.

Cavaliers' Larry Sanders: Headed to D-League for two weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders is expected to spend the next two weeks with the D-League's Canton Charge, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports.

Sanders just signed with the Cavaliers on Monday and hasn't played in an NBA game since the 2014-15 season, so he's going to need some time to get his conditioning in order and get back into game shape. For that reason, Sanders is slated to join the Charge as early as Saturday in order to shake off the rust and is expected to remain there for around two weeks. That would leave roughly three weeks left in the regular season for Sanders to earn a role in the regular rotation off the bench, although that likely won't be more than 10-to-20 minutes with Tristan Thompson commanding the bulk of the playing time. Sanders provides the Cavaliers with an above average rim-protector, but considering the upcoming lengthy stay in the D-League, Sanders can largely be avoided in fantasy leagues for the time being.

Cavaliers' Larry Sanders: Agrees to contract with Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders reached an agreement Monday to sign with the Cavaliers for the remainder of the season, ESPN.com's Chris Haynes reports. The contract is also expected to include a team option for 2017-18, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.

After Andrew Bogut suffered a broken leg in his team debut last week and was ruled out for the season, the Cavaliers decided to fill the void at center with Sanders, a former first-round pick who has been out of the league for two years. Despite the time away from the game and scouts who have viewed his recent workouts indicating that he's lost some muscle mass, the 28-year-old Sanders is still an athletic specimen who could bring a much-needed rim-protecting presence to the second unit. He's averaged 1.8 blocks per game over his career, and should also help out on the glass, an area where the Cavaliers have struggled mightily since losing Kevin Love (knee) to injury. Assuming Sanders passes his physical Monday, the Cavaliers will waive Bogut to clear a roster spot for him. Once he gets settled with his new team, Sanders could take on a 10-to-20-minute role off the bench behind starting center Tristan Thompson.
