- Free agent Larry Sanders ended his two-year exile from the NBA by joining the injury-hit Cleveland Cavaliers, the team announced. The 28-year-old former Bucks star has not played since 2015, when he walked away from the NBA following multiple positive tests for marijuana. He later underwent treatment for anxiety, depression and mood disorders. However he announced in January his intention to return to the sport and Cleveland have swooped following the injury which ruled out Andrew Bogut for the remainder of the season. Aussie big man Bogut was waived by the Cavs on Monday, the team confirmed. Sanders was selected by the Bucks with the 15th overall pick in the 2010 draft. In five seasons with Milwaukee he averaged 6.5 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.8 blocks per game.
