Free agent center Larry Sanders hinted that he could be signing with the Golden State Warriors or the Cleveland Cavaliers in a tweet sent Saturday night.
Free agent center Larry Sanders hinted to the world that he is signing with the Golden State Warriors in a tweet sent Saturday night.
Sanders, who last played for the Milwaukee Bucks in 2014-15, has reportedly been drawing interest from several NBA teams and working out in California. He decided to send out a screenshot from the movie The Warriors from his account, leading many to speculate he and Golden State may be close on a deal.
The Warriors have been searching for players to sign on minimum contracts after inking Kevin Durant to a two-year deal.
Later in the night, nearly an hour after tweeting the screengrab, Sanders sent out a photo of a cavalier.
The 27-year-old was bought out by the Bucks in 2015 after missing games for violating the league's anti-drug policy, and dealing with personal issues. He was once considered a top rim protector in the league, finishing seventh in Defensive Player of the Year voting after the 2012-13 season.
