NBA Rumors: Bulls, Cavaliers, Lakers, Mavericks, Timberwolves Looking to Sign Anthony Tolliver?


Now that all of the big name stars and reliable role players have been plucked out of free agency, it’s officially time for the third-and fourth-tier players to shine.

Step up right up, Anthony Tolliver.

Last year, through 51 games with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Tolliver averaged four points on 39 percent shooting in about 17 minutes of action per game. Not earth-shattering numbers, but pretty standard stuff for not-particularly-great guys coming off the bench. It’s also sort of what you’d expect from someone who has been on five teams in four years as a pro. 

Up to this point quite a few GMs have shown interest in picking him up this summer, but so far it’s all just been talk.

Now that guys like Rashard Lewis have been nabbed by their new teams, however, the focus is shifting onto the Anthony Tollivers of the world.

Who is interested in bringing him in?

Again, this isn’t going to be an earth shattering add-on for anyone, but Tolliver is the sort of player you fill out your bench with. If the Lakers fail to add Antawn Jamison (which they probably will), it wouldn't be particularly shocking to see him end up in L.A.
