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.
