The Cleveland Cavaliers will waive Larry Sanders to sign Edy Tavares.

Sanders had no issues during his time with the Cavaliers after signing a two-year deal in March. The sides mutually worked out his release when it was clear they wouldn't place him in their rotation.

Tavares plans to sign a three-year contract with the Cavaliers.

Tavares was the No. 43 overall pick to the Atlanta Hawks in the 2014 NBA draft. He played 12 NBA games from 2015-16 and was released by the Hawks on Oct. 31.

Tavares averaged 10.9 points and 7.7 rebounds and 2.7 blocks for the season with Raptors 905.

Cavaliers Release DeAndre Liggins

Apr 9, 2017 7:58 PM

The Cleveland Cavaliers have waived DeAndre Liggins.

David Griffin said the decision creates a roster spot for the Cavaliers to fill for the playoffs.

Cleveland could consider Anderson Varejao, Dahntay Jones or Mario Chalmers, but they are more likely to target someone who has played recently.

“Liggs gave us a lot," Tyronn Lue said. “I think when J.R. went down we inserted him into the starting lineup to change our defense to get Kyrie off the ball and to pick up full court, be aggressive defensively -- he was really good for us. Hopefully he gets a chance to go somewhere else and get an opportunity to play.”
