Dallas-based the Dallas Mavericks reportedly have some interest in Larry Sanders, who is known for playing five seasons for the Milwaukee Bucks. According to some media outlets, while JaVale McGee, Samuel Dalembert and Zaza Pachulia are already on the roster, Dallas Mavericks may sign a deal with Sanders, who was suspended earlier this year for violating the National Basketball Association’s (NBA) drug policy. Read further to get details about the possible deal between Dallas Mavericks and Sanders.
According to Fox Sports, the team is very much interested to add Sanders in the rosters as it is looking for a center but it’s still not cleared whether the 26-year-old power forward or center positioned Sanders is interested or not.
“You knew this was inevitable: A source tells me a Western Conference team has had internal talks about possibly signing Larry Sanders,” Gery Woelfel of JournalTimes.com tweeted.
“Multiple Mavs sources say they have nothing brewing with Larry Sanders. But they’d be in front of line if he wanted to play ball again,” Tim MacMahon of ESPN tweeted after Woelfel’s tweet.
Sanders’ age was not appropriate for the retirement but a great imposing rim protector like him was obliged to walk away from NBA to sort out some serious problems in his personal life.
A video of Sanders was released on February this year where he updated the news of entering into a program at Roger Memorial Hospital. He also clarified that he was suffering from anxiety, depression and mood disorders.
He also added that the program he attended highly benefited him and led him to realize “what’s important” and where he should devote his time and energy, and his realization also included something surprising to be minutely understood.
“…for [basketball] to be consuming so much of my life and time right now … it’s not there for me. It’s not that worth it,” Larry Sanders earlier said (via Wikipedia). He also added, then, that he still loves the basketball games and if he someday feels his capability of playing basketball again, he will surely return.
