Report: Clippers, Cavaliers, Spurs among suitors for Anthony Tolliver

Report: Clippers, Cavaliers, Spurs among suitors for Anthony Tolliver - CBSSports.com

RealGM.com reports that Hornets free agent forward Anthony Tolliver is drawing interest from big-name teams like the Los Angeles Clippers, Cleveland Cavaliers, San Antonio Spurs, and Washington Wizards.
Free agent Anthony Tolliver has been in substantial conversations with six NBA teams including the Clippers and Cavaliers as a stretch-forward addition, league sources told RealGM.
Tolliver has also received interest from the Detroit Pistons, Washington Wizards, Spurs and Hornets among other organizations, sources said, and teams expect a possible signing next week.
via Clippers Cavaliers Among Teams Interested In Anthony Tolliver - RealGM Wiretap.
Tolliver, 29, averaged six points per game last season shooting 102-of-247 from three for 41 percent and adding 2.6 rebounds in 20 minutes per game for Charlotte. He's a veteran floor spacer and can help any number of teams. If Charlotte loses Tolliver and McRoberts, even after adding rookie Noah Vonleh, they're going to be hurting in the frontcourt.
The Spurs are an especially interesting concept given how they use their bigs, while Washington could be despearate for shooters after the injury to Martell Webster and the explosion of Trevor Ariza's value on the open market.

Can we make a guess now after what has occurred in the past week that some team will offer him $48 million for 3 years?

As much as I liked Tolliver when he was with the Spurs, hasn't he played for practically all the NBA teams by now? Is this his second pass through?

Bonner has a higher BBIQ and already knows the system so it makes more sense to resign him. Spurs are probably just kicking the tires.

Suitors. That's funny. Like the Spurs are knocking on his door asking him to play here. More like Tolliver said he wants to play here.

I get the feeling that 9 times out of 10 when I see that the Spurs are 'interested' in someone, it's that player's agent who put the Spurs name out there hoping some other team will say 'well if the Spurs are interested, this guy must be worth it'

Agree, especially since we are almost out of roster spots.

One of the reasons the Spurs were interested in him in 2009 was his intelligence. From what I have been able to find out he is a very Spurs-like player. Fundamentally sound, intelligent, plays the right way. Last year a 41% 3-pt shooter. Physically limited. Looks like a somewhat less capable version of Diaw. Probably ends up a Spur only if he is willing to take the minimum, and maybe not even then.
