Bobcats Sign Anthony Tolliver

Veteran forward Anthony Tolliver has narrowed his free agent choices to Charlotte, Chicago and Utah and is expected to finalize a deal by this weekend, one source told HoopsHype.

Coach Clifford said that the Bobcats were looking to add another forward and point guard, well Tolliver might be that "forward".

Tolliver is in his 6th year in the NBA and has has experience with the Spurs, Warriors, Trail Blazers, Timberwolves, and Hawks. His best year in the NBA came five years ago with Golden State when he averaged 12.3 points per game (43% field goal percentage), 7.3 rebounds per game, and 2.0 assists per game in 32.3 minutes per game.

Last year Tolliver averaged 4.1 points per game (38% field goal percentage) and 2.5 rebounds per game in 15.5 minutes per game. However, Tolliver is capable of a breakout game every once in awhile... last year Tolliver recorded 21 points (.700 field goal percentage), 8 rebounds, 2 blocks, and 1 assist in 27 minutes while leading the Hawks to a 107-96 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers.

While Tolliver won't get you 10 points and 8 rebounds every night like Josh McRoberts, he would be a decent backup to Zeller and McBob.

A guy the team needs on the back end of the bench along with Pat Ewing Jr.

I am loving the Zellar, Biyombo, Jefferson, McRoberts front court rotation. I guess he would swing form the 3 and 4.

He brings that Byron Mullens skill set that is now missing lol.

He is as good a Sims was in the summer league who flashed a little but countered it quick with bad play.

Sign Tolliver, Seth Curry, and Ewing Jr. and I'm good.

 

Depth Chart:

C: Al Jefferson, Bismack Biyombo, Brendan Haywood

PF: Cody Zeller, Josh McRoberts, Anthony Tolliver

SF: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Jeff Taylor

SG: Gerald Henderson, Ben Gordon, Patrick Ewing Jr.

PG: Kemba Walker, Ramon Sessions, Seth Curry

 

Would really love to trade Gordon for a pick and veteran SF though and move Taylor to backup SG.

While he waits to learn more about the Lakers' situation, other teams on Tolliver’s list are Charlotte, Utah and Chicago. Tolliver said the Bobcats have made a contract offer (for the minimum) and he visited Charlotte last Monday. Sulia

 

Free agent Anthony Tolliver told me Lakers have entered mix as possible team for him & he visited Charlotte Monday. Tolliver said the Lakers recently called his agent, Larry Fox, to express interest. He said talks are still preliminary but he would have definite interest if the Lakers turn out to be a serious option. “Obviously, to have a chance to play for a franchise like that, you’d have to think long and hard about that,’’ the forward told FOX Sports Florida. Sulia

 

Rick Bonnell: Also, Bobcats have offered power forward Anthony Tolliver a 1-year contract. Tolliver is weighing his options next few days. Twitter @rick_bonnell

 

 

Rick Bonnell: Regarding Tolliver (or Jeff Adrien), Clifford said last month he'd rather have a sixth big (PF or center) than an additional wing player. Twitter @rick_bonnell 

 

I guess the idea is that they will cut Adrien if they sign Tolliver.

Not sure we'll lure him here with the min., not against some of those other teams, we'll see though.  At least we're trying.

Damn it, this pretty much erases any chance of getting Curry, doesn't it?

Nah, we have one roster spot left. Also Bonnell seems to think the will cut Adrien now that they have Tolliver.
