Sanders has not played in the NBA since the 14-15 season where he walked away from the Milwaukee Bucks appearing in just 27 games.
The two sides decided on a buyout of his four-year, $44 million (USD) contract in Feb, 2015. Saunders was set to collect $1.9 million each year through 2022.
The 28 year-old averaged 6.5 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.8 blocks per game for his career.
