Report: Cavs in serious talks with Larry Sanders

A report says the Cavaliers are in serious discussions with Larry Sanders

CLEVELAND--With the season-ending injury to Andrew Bogut, the Cavaliers are in the market for another center. 

According to The Vertical, the Cavs are in "serious discussions" with Larry Sanders on bringing him to Cleveland. The Cavs worked out Sanders prior to the signing of Bogut.

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.
