Report: Cavs working out Larry Sanders

ESPN reported that former Milwaukee Bucks big man Larry Sanders is in Cleveland to workout for the Cavs

Will Larry Sanders make his comeback with the Cavaliers?

That is a question that the WineAndGoldReport's Jared Mueller asked several months ago.

According to ESPN's Chris Haynes, Sanders is in Cleveland for a workout with the Cavs according to league sources. Sanders also posted photos of his arrival on his Snapchat account.

Sanders, 28, played five years with the Bucks and was one of the best shot-blockers in the NBA, averaging 1.8 blocks per game in his career. He was second in the NBA in blocks per game in 2012-13.

He hasn't played in a game since the 2014-15 season. On multiple occasions, Sanders violated the NBA's drug policy with positive marijuana tests. He left the game and later checked himself into a hospital for depression and anxiety.

The Cavs are believed to be in search of a big man with the season-ending injury to Chris Andersen and the knee injury to Kevin Love. The Cavs are also to believed to be in a search for a backup point guard with the trading deadline Thursday at 3 pm.

In other news, the Cavs are reportedly planning to re-sign Derrick Williams to another 10-day contract.

The Cavs have not announced any of the moves.
