The Minnesota Timberwolves will have plenty of new faces on their roster when the 2012-2013 season starts with all the moves they have made this summer, but they reportedly still have some interest in bringing back free agent forward Anthony Tolliver. Tolliver has spent the past two seasons with the Timberwolves, and he averaged 4.1 points and 3.0 rebounds per game over 51 games last season. Minnesota did renounce their rights to Tolliver earlier this offseason, but they could be willing to bring him back at a lower salary.
Tolliver did get some level of notoriety prior to signing with the Timberwolves by posting an online video mocking “The Decision” made by LeBron James during that offseason, but his on-court production has not been outstanding with career averages of 6.8 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game over four NBA seasons (181 games-33 starts). His best season to this point came in 2009-2010 when he averaged 11.7 points, 7.0 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game while playing 46 total games, 44 of which came with the Golden State Warriors.
Tolliver would help further bolster the Timberwolves’ frontcourt depth, and he does bring some versatility to the table as he can likely play both forward spots. His salary demands are likely to also fit well as Minnesota is virtually assured to be done adding significant salaries this offseason.
