Clippers, Cavaliers Among Teams Interested In Anthony Tolliver
Free agent Anthony Tolliver has been in substantial conversations with six NBA teams – including the Los Angeles Clippers and Cleveland Cavaliers – as a stretch-forward addition, league sources told RealGM.
Tolliver has also received interest from the Detroit Pistons, Washington Wizards, San Antonio Spurs and Charlotte Hornets among other organizations, sources said, and teams expect a possible signing next week.
For a playoff team in Charlotte, Tolliver averaged 6.1 points and 2.6 rebounds while shooting 41.3 percent from three-point range. He developed a strong relationship with coach Steve Clifford and a leadership role within the Hornets’ locker room.
Tolliver, 29, has averaged 6.1 points and 3.7 rebounds over six NBA seasons with the Spurs, Golden State Warriors, Portland Trail Blazers, Minnesota Timberwolves, Atlanta Hawks and Hornets. After four collegiate years at Creighton, Tolliver broke into the NBA through the Development League, solidified a niche as a shooter and earned a position in the players’ union.
Tolliver once scored 12.3 points and grabbed 7.3 rebounds per game for the Warriors in 2009-10.
