Report: Knicks not among teams interested in Larry Sanders
Larry Sanders has decided to return to the NBA after being bought out of his contract by the Milwaukee Bucks in February 2015. Prior to exiting, Sanders made himself known for his defense, finishing the 2012 season second in blocks per game and third in voting for the NBA Most Improved Player award.
Earlier this month, it was reported that Sanders was training for a comeback, and that several teams were reportedly interested. However, according to Sanders’ Twitter, the teams have been narrowed down to the Warriors, Cavs, Knicks and Celtics.
However, just one day after Sanders’ tweet, ESPN’s Ian Begley reported that the Knicks aren’t in the conversation.
The Knicks are not among teams who have shown interest in Larry Sanders at this point, per a league source. https://t.co/rdXjETDBAa

With only Joakim Noah and Kristaps Porzingis on the Knicks roster to defend the rim, and given Sanders defensive history, it would seem as if Sanders would be a great addition to the team. But if the poll is any indication as to where Sanders will end up, it looks like he will be going to Boston to help Avery Bradley, Marcus Smart and Jae Crowder.
