Report: Mavericks may be interested in former Bucks center Larry Sanders

BY foxsports • October 13, 2015

The Dallas Mavericks have a hole at center they may want to address with a free agent signing. 

While Zaza Pachulia, Samuel Dalembert and JaVale McGee are on the roster, the Mavericks may be interested in signing additional depth.  

While it may be a longshot, the Mavericks might have interest in former Milwaukee Bucks center Larry Sanders, who retired from basketball last year. 

It's still unclear if Sanders, 26, wants to play in the NBA again. 

Here's more from Kurt Helin at ProBasketballTalk

"Larry Sanders has been out of the game since his buyout last February trying to deal with his personal demons and may well not be ready to return. He may never return.  

His couple seasons with the Bucks were filled with drama and issues. There was the nightclub brawl left him with an injured thumb in need of a surgery. There were the charges of animal cruelty. There was a five-game drug suspension. There was missed time for personal reasons. There was the 10-game suspension for marijuana use (he failed at least four tests to get there) — then that suspension was extended past the 10 games.

 In the end, he agreed to a buyout to get space away from the game to deal with his personal issues. He may or may not be ready to return from that. He may or may not ever be ready. But if he decides to give it a try, NBA teams will be waiting. Maybe Dallas."
