The Milwaukee Bucks officially signed center Larry Centers to a contract extension Tuesday afternoon. The Bucks did not disclose the details of the contract, but the deal is reportedly worth about $44 million (including incentives that could take the deal over $48 million) over four years.
Sanders tweeted out a picture of him signing his new contract on instagram and gave a special message to his fans.
It’s official..can’t believe I’ve been granted this opportunity to represent Milwaukee for the next 5 years and hopefully the rest of my career. Words can not explain my gratitude for the @bucks organization and the faith in me as a leader and a worker..I won’t let you down Mil-town..see you in the BC!!! #letsgobucks#bucknation #buck4life
In his third season as a professional, Sanders had what can be described as a “breakout season.” The former Virginia Commonwealth big man averaged 9.8 points, 9.5 rebounds and 2.8 blocks per game in 27.3 minutes per game last season. He shot 50.6% from the field and 61.8% from the free throw line. He also started 55 games. Each of those numbers was a career-high.
