Is Larry Sanders Worth Pricey Extension?

Larry Sanders had a breakout season last year, landing him on lists for Most Improved and Defensive Player of the Year. He became an overnight sensation as one of the league leaders in blocks and rebounds, and changed the Bucks’ defense fundamentally with his ability to challenge at the rim.
But there were questions about his discipline and control, especially after he was ejected in a spurt of games in the middle of the season.
The question is going to be whether this kind of thing is the sign of a young player who struggled under an organization without discipline or purpose or an inherent character trait. A lot of undisciplined players have been wildly successful in this league, just as many disciplined players never keep their spot. It’s talent, behavior, ability, health, everything. But Sanders has so much promise, you hope he’s able to learn a little bit about what it takes to be great, and how that relates to pacing yourself in-season without outright coasting.
