Larry Sanders tells Milwaukee Bucks he doesn't want to play basketball

Gardner: Impact on Bucks Losing Parker

Last week the Milwaukee Bucks announced that center Larry Sanders would be out indefinitely for "personal reasons" without elaborating further what that meant. Well, it now appears we know why Sanders won't be taking the court anytime soon.

According to Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times, Sanders recently told the Bucks that he doesn't want to play basketball anymore.

While that is shocking, it appears he's been dealing with these feelings for some time now.

Sanders' career has been nothing short of a disaster since the Bucks signed him to a $44 million contract last offseason. He's had multiple off-the-court issues, including a bar fight and fights with teammates last year, and his play on the court has continuously declined. He's averaging just 7.3 points and 6.1 rebounds per game this season.

Perhaps all of that factored into him simply not loving the game anymore.

We certainly hope Sanders can find happiness during his time off the court.

On another note, this puts the Bucks in a pretty terrible situation, considering they have a high-paid guy on their roster that doesn't want to play.

Woelfel is reporting that the team is trying to deal Sanders, though it's highly unlikely they'd be able to find a suitor for him at this point.

If Sanders truly is done with basketball, the Bucks will likely have little choice but to release him and deal with the substantial financial hit that would come with it.

The Bucks drafted Sanders with the No. 15 overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft. He emerged as one of the league's best defenders during the 2012-13 season, as he averaged a whopping 2.8 blocks per game. He also averaged 9.8 points and 9.5 rebounds per game in the same season and appeared to be one of the brightest young talents in the league.
