Agrees to contract with Cleveland

Big man Larry Sanders is making his National Basketball Association return with the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to The Vertical's Shams Charania and other media reports.

Multiple sources, including Yahoo's The Vertical, report Sanders agreed to a deal with Cavs with a likely 2017-2018 option date. He later checked himself into a hospital for treatment. The signing of Sanders comes in the wake of losing the newly signed Andrew Bogut for the remainder of the season after he broke his leg just 58 seconds into his Cavalier debut last Monday against the Miami Heat.

McGregor took offense at this but reports went around and Mayweather eventually admitted to spreading it so the fight will happen. Mayweather is also insinuating that the reason Conor McGregor can not commit to the fight is because he isn't the boss of UFC.

James still remembered how Sanders played as an "athletic big buy" with great anticipation skills around the rim and the speed to check the guards in the perimeter. "With his hiatus, I don't know what he was going through so I can't comment about somebody's personal life because I wasn't a part of it". Cavaliers superstar LeBron James was supportive of the rumored move even before it happened. Sanders makes his return to the league following a two-year absence after exiting the league due to anxiety and depression-related issues. As expected, the Cavs waived Bogut, who sent well wishes to Sanders on Twitter by posting, "Best of luck @l8show_thegoat Will be watching". He's averaged 1.8 blocks per game over his career, and should also help out on the glass, an area where the Cavaliers have struggled mightily since losing Kevin Love (knee) to injury. "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". He holds career averages of 6.5 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.84 blocks in 19.8 minutes per game and now ranks sixth among active players in blocks per game. Sanders appeared to be on his way to being one of the better defensive centers in the league.
