Charania noted the deal will likely include a team option for the 2017-18 season.
However, the truth is that Bogut was more game-ready than Sanders, who played his last game on December 23, 2014.
In 2015, Sanders accepted a buyout from the Milwaukee Bucks in order to focus on his personal life.
Sanders had a seven-team workout in February and had meetings with the Boston Celtics, Los Angeles Lakers and Cavaliers.
The Cavs were looking for a big man following the injury to Bogut. Let's not forget that he was one of the best shot blockers in the league during the 2012-2013 season (2.8 blocks per game).

After missing seven games in 2015, Jeffery showed up in 2016 in what the Bears said at the time was the best shape of his career. Wide receiver Alshon Jeffery signed a one-year, $14 million pact with Philadelphia , according to ESPN's Josina Anderson.
Sanders was a head case during his time with the Bucks, but LeBron James thinks that he deserves a second chance to play in the league.
The Cavs officially signed Larry Sanders on Monday, and waived Andrew Bogut in a corresponding move. Sanders hasn't played since and has seemingly only generated casual interest from teams as his name floated in comeback rumors.
Then he got injured 58 seconds into his debut as he collided with Okaro White on the perimeter and the impact caused him to fracture his left tibia, a season-ending injury.
Sanders also spoke out about his battles with anxiety and depression.
"It looks like he wants another opportunity, and hopefully, if we're the team, hopefully we give him an opportunity".
A first-round pick in the 2010 NBA Draft out of Virginia Commonwealth University, Sanders averaged 6.5 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.8 blocks while playing 19.8 minutes a night over 233 career games with the Bucks. You don't know how much you can get out of a guy that's been out so long, but I'd love to see it.
