According to several media reports today, the Cleveland Cavaliers have found a suitable replacement for Andrew Bogut.

The Cavs have signed Larry Sanders, a 28-year-old, 6’11, 235-pound center, who hasn’t played in the NBA since the 2014-15 season with the Milwaukee Bucks.

A former star at Virginia Commonwealth University, Sanders walked away from basketball during the 2014-15 season to address mental health issues which were found out to be anxiety, depression and mood disorders. At the time he walked away from the game, this was his statement: He said that the program led him to realize “what’s important, and where I would want to devote my time and energy” and that ultimately he realized that “for [basketball] to be consuming so much of my life and time right now … it’s not there for me. It’s not that worth it.” He did, however, claim to still love the game and that “if I get to a point where I feel I’m capable of playing basketball again, then I will.”

On January 26, 2017, Sanders announced his decision to return to basketball.

The new contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers, marks the beginning of his comeback.

According to the news reports, the Cavs plans for Sanders at this time at not surprising. He will practice with the team during off-game days; then play with their NBA Development team, the Canton Charge for the rest of the regular season. By achieving that, the team has high hopes Sanders will be physically ready for the postseason stretch.

For his first two seasons for VCU, Sanders was the supporting star to guard Eric Maynor.  Sanders was brilliant as the second star,  utilizing his size and athleticism to disrupt teams defensively. As a sophomore, he helped the Rams into the 2009 NCAA Tournament,  but lost 65–64 to the UCLA Bruins in the first round of the tournament. Sanders went on to have a more prominent role in his junior season after Maynor was drafted into the NBA. As a junior Sanders averaged 14.4 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 2.6 blocks, with 53% field-goal accuracy, all statistical team highs, on his way to earning the second of his consecutive Colonial Athletic AssociationDefensive Player of the Year awards in 2008–09 and 2009–10.

Larry Sanders announced in April 2010 after his junior year that he was leaving  VCU early to enter the National Basketball Association Draft.

His VCU honor roll:

  • First-team All-CAA (2010)
  • Second-team All-CAA (2009)
  • 2× CAA Defensive Player of the Year (2009, 2010)
  • 3× CAA All-Defensive Team (2008–2010)
  • CAA All-Freshman Team (2008)
