Larry Sanders Agrees To Deal With Cavaliers

Sanders, 28, spent his first five seasons with the Milwaukee Bucks, averaging 6.5 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.8 blocks per game.

Sanders and his agent, Joel Bell, are in Cleveland on Monday as Sanders takes a physical.

If Sanders proves himself in the D-League and is able to contribute even just somewhere around 8-10 minutes a night in the postseason, it could prove quite worthwhile for a Cavs team that's now 23rd in opponent's second chance points, and 15th in opponent's points in the paint. In a related move, the team has also waived center Andrew Bogut. The contract is likely to include a guarantee trigger date for the 17-18 season. His best season came in 2012-13 when he ranked second in the National Basketball Association in blocks per game (2.83), while averaging 9.8 points on.506 shooting from the field and 9.5 rebounds in 27.3 minutes during 71 games (55 starts).

Headstones toppled in Brooklyn Jewish cemetery
In 2010, some 200 headstones were toppled in the same Brooklyn cemetery, over a Friday night and Saturday, when the cemetery is closed.

But after everything that has transpired since Monday, it seems that the Cavs have looked past the post and that Sanders has gotten over the Cavs not signing him over Bogut in the first place. On multiple occasions, Sanders violated the NBA's drug policy with positive marijuana tests. It's unreasonable for anyone to expect Sanders to play more than 10 minutes per game but in that short time, it's reasonable to expect Sanders to make a defensive impact.

All-Star forward Kevin Love hasn't played since February 11 because of a knee injury that required minor surgery on Valentine's Day. "Why not? Everyone deserves a second chance, and it looks like he wants to get back to playing the game he loves, and hopefully this is his destination".

Cleveland has played with just two bigs since Love's injury - Tristan Thompson and Channing Frye - save for Bogut's 58 seconds. Lloyd reported that the Cavs didn't believe Sanders would be disciplined by the league if he were signed.
