Spurs have interest in Anthony Tolliver -- again

Seven teams reportedly interested in free agent Anthony Tolliver

With all of the high-impact free agents spoken for at this point in the offseason, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that a competent role player is drawing interest from multiple teams.

Anthony Tolliver has at least seven teams on the hook, reports Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports Florida. This is a similar situation to what Tolliver faced last year in the free agent process, before he ultimately landed with the Atlanta Hawks on a one-year deal.

This time around, it’s the Knicks, Magic, Spurs, Lakers, Bobcats, Jazz, and Bulls who are all reported to have some level of interest.

Tolliver was offered a one-year contract for the veteran’s minimum by the Bobcats after visiting Charlotte earlier this week. Here’s a little more on that potential connection:
During his visit, Tolliver met with general manager Rod Higgins, coach Steve Clifford and assistant coach Stephen Silas, once his assistant at Golden State. Tolliver said Silas and Bob Weiss, his assistant last year at Atlanta and now a Bobcats assistant, have been pushing for him to come to the Bobcats.

“Charlotte is an intriguing situation because of their roster and everything,’’ Tolliver said.

Tolliver will obviously shop around for a better offer that will guarantee him more dollars or an extra season. But if nothing else comes in, he’ll be a Bobcat next year.

Tolliver is a stretch four who had his best NBA year with the Warriors in 2010, when he averaged 12.3 points and 7.3 rebounds in 32.3 minutes per game that season.

Anthony Tolliver will take his talents to Charlotte

Anthony Tolliver reportedly had as many as seven teams interested in his services for the upcoming season, but the free agent forward has apparently decided to take his talents to Charlotte. Tolliver and the Bobcats agreed on a one-year deal Saturday morning, according to Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer, though the former D-League standout wasn’t quite as fun with the announcement as he has been in the past.

The 6-foot-8 forward is averaging a solid 6.1 points and 4.0 rebounds in less than 20 minutes over the course of a winding career, but he’s struggled a bit since starring on the fun 2009-10 Golden State Warriors squad that featured fellow D-League call-ups C.J. Watson, Reggie Williams, Cartier Martin, Chris Hunter and Coby Karl. For a player best known for his ability to stretch the defense, Tolliver is shooting just 29.9 percent on 234 attempts from beyond the arc over the past two seasons — not exactly mind-blowing numbers, unfortunately.

Tolliver has signed more NBA contracts than most likely realize — with Cleveland in 2007; the Spurs in 2008; the Hornets, Heat and Blazers in 2009; two 10-days and then a rest-of-season contract with the Warriors in 2010, followed by a Timberwolves contract that summer and then finally his Hawks contract last year around this time — but he used to be excited about it.

I wonder if a more appropriate title might be...
"Tolliver's agent is saying that the Spurs and all of these other teams have interest"
