L.S. briefly had a comeback with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2017 … but reportedly struggled with keeping up with his responsibilities. We spoke with Sanders about his career … and he makes it clear he’s not ready to hang up the sneaks yet. “I think with things shifting a bit, me still young, I feel like I’m in the prime stage, I can definitely contribute.” “I would just love to contribute to a team and help them win and give my knowledge, give my defensive presence and just being able to play basketball.” “That’s ideal for me. That sounds like heaven.”

While the former center violated the league’s drug policy multiple times for smoking marijuana, Sanders wants to make it clear why he was done with basketball before the age of 30. “I could feel the effects it [marijuana] was having on my body, on my sleep and pain in comparison to the pills I was given” said Sanders in an interview with CBS Local’s DJ Sixsmith. “As a scientist, I knew what helped and what worked. It always came down to legalities. I felt like I was in the pre-historic age where we were still in this discovery mode. It sucks that people are still suffering when there are solutions out there that are deemed illegal because of some stigma.”

Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton are the only players left on the Bucks from Sanders’ time. He still follows the team closely and keeps in contact with his ex-teammates. “Usually if I reach out to someone, I get a response,” he said. “It’s all love.” Sanders has fond memories of his time in the city. “I’m a really earthy, on-foot person,” Sanders said. “Milwaukee was my first time really experiencing snow. So I was in a wonderland. Now five years of it kind of weighed on me. By Year 5, I had my routes. I had a spot on the lake that I would go to after every game. I had a certain spot on the lake. I’d just sit there in my car. I had my favorite tree. I had my trails that I would walk by the lake. I really took it in and had a great experience.”
