Cavs News: Cavs to Release Larry Sanders to Sign Center Edy Tavares

Larry Sanders Cleveland Cavaliers

Breaking news has come out of the Cleveland Cavaliers organization as the world champions are planning to part ways with recently acquired Larry Sanders to bring in 7-foot-3 center Edy Tavares.

Tavares has been playing for the Toronto Raptors D-League affiliate Raptors 905, and the Cavs plan on signing him to a multi-year contract on the Wednesday, per Shams Charania of The Vertical.

It was a short-lived return to professional basketball for Sanders, whose return to the court has been underwhelming. Sanders has struggled with his time in the D-League, and the Cavs have opted to bank on a player who has been playing at a consistently good level for an entire season.

Cavs fans will bid farewell to Sanders, but the prospect of a 7-foot-3 center protecting the paint for the Wine and Gold is an exciting one.
