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.

Rick Bonnell: Power forward Anthony Tolliver agrees to one-year deal with Bobcats. Twitter @rick_bonnell

Shams Charania: Anthony Tolliver reaches agreement on one-year, fully guaranteed deal w/ Bobcats that won't be finalized until Friday, source tells RealGM. Twitter @ShamsCharania

Tolliver wanted to wrap up a deal before he left for vacation Sunday to the Dominican Republic. Tolliver, who will sign a one-year, $1,027 million, went for the sure thing. Tolliver will sign with the Bobcats in about a week, after he returns from vacation. Sulia

Anthony Tolliver’s agent, Larry Fox, said his client will be a good fit for the Charlotte Bobcats.“He went there on Monday and had a good visit with Steve Clifford,’’ Fox told FOX Sports Florida about Tolliver going to Charlotte. “He believes the team is heading in the right direction. “They’ve got a good group of young players and I think he’ll fit right in. He’s a good fit because the Bobcats don’t really have on their roster a (power forward) who can step out and shoot.’’ Sulia

Shams Charania: Up until verbal agreement with Bobcats, Tolliver had been in negotiations with Bulls and Lakers, source says. Clippers became serious too. Twitter @ShamsCharania

Anthony Tolliver: I will be taking my talents to Charlotte! Blessed to have another opportunity in the NBA...lots of ORANGE in my future!

I don't know, I was thinking this kind of post would need it's own thread for discussion, but I'll put it here...

This is the greatest roster we have ever fielded top to bottom. Point blank, period.
