NBA Role: athletic pivot • CLE Depth Chart: Spot Minutes/D-League

Hey now! Larry Sanders is back in the league – Sanders adds much-needed size and shot-blocking* for the defending champs; a former first-rounder outta VCU, Sanders specializes in help side D, possesses nice athletic traits and a good understanding of where he’s effective on the court; still room to develop? though Sanders is 28, he has some upside offensively, could flourish as a catch & finish guy; good screen setter; needs to extend his J, work on shot selection; a low-risk gamble, Sanders’s presence could prove value during Cleveland’s playoff run

*that’s the hope!
