The Milwaukee Bucks, who lost guards Monta Ellis and Brandon Jennings during the offseason, signed center Larry Sanders to a four-year, $44 million extension of his rookie deal, Yahoo! Sports reported.
Incentive bonuses could add as much as $4 million to the deal.
The 6-foot-11 Sanders is best known for his defense, averaging 2.8 blocks per game.
He also averaged 9.8 points and 9.5 rebounds.
Sanders started 51 games for the Bucks this past season, his third in the NBA.
A major issue for Sanders is controlling his emotions. He was issued 14 technical fouls last season, the third most in the NBA, and he was ejected from five games, the most in the league.
