Milwaukee Bucks center Larry Sanders is very close to signing a huge contract extension that will make him the highest paid player on the team and keep him in Wisconsin for many years to come. The details regarding the extension reveal a contract that will pay Sanders $44 million over a four-year span.
Sanders is everything any player, coach or fan would want in a team leader. He is an intense and determined person who does not back down from a challenge. He wants to improve his own skills while helping everyone around him get better. More importantly, he wants to win immediately and bring glory back to Milwaukee.
There is no question who the face of the franchise will be going forward and who the Bucks are trying to build their team around. It is very rare for an organization to have a center with Sanders’ unique skill set. Not only does he have the raw talent to be a top-notch player, but he is eager to learn from the intelligent coaching staff on how to be a better producer on offense and defense.
The 24-year-old has said it numerous times before that he wants to stay with the Bucks for the entiriety of his career. Hopefully, the deal he is about to ink is just the beginning of what will become of the relationship between the two parties.
Sanders tweeted the following after reports began circulating about a contract extension last week:
“Well let’s get it done then! #Buck4Life
“I love the city of Milwaukee and I will stay as long as you’ll have me.”
