Larry Sanders Working On Personal Issues, Wants To Resume NBA Career

Jan 19, 2015 12:45 PM

Larry Sanders is planning on using his 10-game suspension as a chance to deal with his core personal issues and work on living without marijuana use.

Sanders wants to continue his basketball career and has been coming to the realization league rules won't permit that unless he stops testing positive as part of the league's drug program, sources said.

 

Sanders' future with the Milwaukee Bucks is unclear.

The revitalized Bucks could seek to pursue a contract buyout with Sanders, but that's a discussion that's yet to take place with Sanders' representatives.

 

Sanders signed a four-year, $44 million extension with the Bucks in 2013.
