Larry Sanders wants to return to Bucks
Larry Sanders, who left the NBA a few years ago, wants to go back to the Milwaukee Bucks — the team which drafted him and where he spent his first five years as a pro.
Sanders posted on his Twitter account his willingness to back to Milwaukee:
I want to go back to Milwaukee 😪

After the tweet above, Sanders posted a poll asking his followers where they would want to see him. Metta World Peace replied, and said that he wants to see Sanders back in Milwaukee:

After years in hiatus, Sanders was acquired by the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2017. He played in five games but was eventually waived.
In a video by The Players’ Tribune three years ago, Sanders explained why he chose to walk away from basketball. He acknowledged that many people have dreamed of making it to the NBA. However, for Sanders, all the money and fame isn’t his definition of happiness:
“As a person who grew up with nothing, I know money is important. I’m incredibly grateful to have had the chance to play in the NBA. But at the same time, that’s not what fuels me. I’ve never chased money. It’s never been how I define success. Happiness isn’t behind a golden gate.”
In a video, he added:
“I love basketball, I’ll always be playing basketball. But for it to be consuming so much of my life and time right now, it’s not there for me. It’s not worth it.”
“You say I’m selfish, and I’m loving, and I’m caring and I’m fearful sometimes. I’m also brave.”
