Larry Sanders Told the Bucks He Doesn’t Want to Play Basketball Anymore

Bucks center Larry Sanders signed a four-year, $44 million contract extension before last season. Since, he’s been an abject disaster, missing games due to injury, drug policy violations and bar fights. That’s not to mention his animal cruelty citation and his sub-par play when he has actually been on the court.

This season, he’s been at odds with Bucks head coach Jason Kidd, who said last week that Sanders—who hasn’t played the last six games—would remain out for “personal reasons” with no timetable for his return. We might have just learned why. According to longtime Bucks beat reporter Gery Woelfel, sources say Sanders has told the team that he just simply doesn’t want to play basketball anymore.
