I guess we do need another backup PF. I just hope he doesn’t turn into a regrettable contract (aka Ryan Hollins v. 2.0) Clearly Tolliver is better than Ryan Hollins ever was, or ever will be. What I mean is, I just hope it’s not a signing that Kahn soon regrets, and is forced to dump a year later.
It’s 2 Years and about $4.8 Million.
Per Chris Tomasson at AOL Fanhouse:
Forward Anthony Tolliver, one of the top free agents left out of a very thin crop, has reached an agreement to sign with Minnesota.
Tolliver’s agent, Larry Fox, told FanHouse on Friday his client will join the Timberwolves. While Fox wouldn’t discuss terms, sources said he’ll get a two-year deal that could be worth as much as $4.8 million over two years.
“He’s really excited,” Fox said. “He can play (power forward) for them and be a stretch (small forward).”
Tolliver, 25, averaged 11.7 points and 7.0 rebounds last season in 46 games with Portland and Golden State. Take away a scoreless two games with the Trail Blazers early in the season and he averaged 12.3 points and 7.3 rebounds in 44 games with the Warriors.
Golden State had strongly considered re-signing Tolliver. But in the end the Timberwolves, which had cleared a spot for Tolliver by trading Ryan Hollins last week, were thought to be the better option.
