Report: Cleveland Cavaliers waive Larry Sanders, sign Edy Tavares
The Cleveland Cavaliers will add Edy Tavares to their roster after waiving Larry Sanders on Tuesday. The team will likely be set from there on out as they look to head to the playoffs.
The move was first reported by Yahoo! Sports, and it’s no doubt disappointing for both parties that Sanders did no work out.
Once Cavs complete Edy Tavares & Dahntay Jones signings tomorrow, they'll have had 22 different players on their roster this season.— Brian Windhorst (@WindhorstESPN) April 12, 2017
Cleveland was eligible to waive Larry Sanders because his contract was not expiring. Sanders 2017-18 salary was non-guaranteed.— Bobby Marks (@BobbyMarks42) April 12, 2017
Sanders had originally signed back in March but was sparingly used by Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue.
Once a promising prospect, Sanders spent time away from the NBA largely to work on his mental health. He is still just 28 years old, so it’s possible we see Sanders on an NBA team next season.
