So this afternoon in a very "Larry Sanders-ish" move, former Milwaukee Bucks center Larry Sanders tweeted out this:
Which team do you believe will utilize my skills the best??🤔— L8 Show (@LarrySanders) July 25, 2016
We touched on the possibility of bringing Sanders in recently and the sentiment remains the same. He fills a pretty significant need as a young (27 years old) defensive, rim protecting, starting caliber center.
It's also worth noting that Sanders also tweeted out poll with a second batch of teams but the C's still pulled in a majority of the votes.
Poll 1 results: Celtics - 39%
Cavaliers - 29%
Knicks - 17%
Warriors - 15%

Poll 2 results: Bucks - 34%
Mavericks - 27%
Lakers - 24%
Heat - 15%
Sanders walked away from the game after his second marijuana-related suspension and additionally cited anxiety and depression causing him to lose focus and passion. If a re-energized and rejuvenated Larry Sanders is available, He should absolutely be a target for the Celtics.
If Sanders is serious about a return and has his mind right, I think he's definitely worth a look at the right price. The reputation of this locker room and the chance to come in and contribute right away could be a real breath of fresh air for the talented big man.
