Bucks request waivers on center Larry Sanders


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Bucks have waived center Larry Sanders, who has been out since Dec. 23 for personal reasons.

Sanders was suspended by the NBA Jan. 16 for violating the league's drug policy. He was listed as "not with team -- personal" for Milwaukee's Feb. 11 game against Sacramento, an indication his suspension ended.

Bucks general manager John Hammond announced the waiver Saturday night, saying it is "in the best interest of our team."

This season, Sanders played in 27 games for Milwaukee with 26 starts. He averaged 7.3 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.4 blocks.

The 26-year-old player from Virginia Commonwealth signed a $44 million, four-year contract extension with Milwaukee in 2013.
