March 13 (The Sports Xchange) - The Cleveland Cavaliers reached an agreement to sign free agent center Larry Sanders and waived center Andrew Bogut, the team announced Monday.

The defending NBA champions needed front-court depth after Bogut suffered a fractured tibia in his left leg just 58 seconds into his Cleveland debut last Monday against the Miami Heat.

Sanders' deal will cover the remainder of this season and likely include a guarantee trigger date for 2017-18, sources told The Vertical.

The Milwaukee Bucks drafted Sanders with the 15th overall pick in 2010. He spent five seasons with the Bucks (2010-11 to 2014-15), averaging 6.5 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.8 blocks per game.

Andre Iguodala has been fined $10,000 by the NBA for his postgame comments with racial overtones following the Golden State Warriors' 103-102 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves last Friday.

Asked why Warriors coach Steve Kerr planned to rest him along with stars Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green on Saturday against the San Antonio Spurs, Iguodala responded, "Nope, no clue. I do what master say."

Memphis Grizzlies forward Chandler Parsons, who has been limited this season because of right knee issues, was diagnosed with a partial tear of the meniscus in his left knee and will be out indefinitely, the team announced Monday.
