Well-traveled Tolliver signs with Timberwolves

Free-agent forward Anthony Tolliver is headed back to the Timberwolves.

The Minnesota Timberwolves have signed forward Anthony Tolliver, according to the The Detroit News.

Tolliver’s contract is reportedly for one year and in the $5-$6 million range.

He appeared in 79 games with the Pistons this past season, averaging 8.9 points and 3.1 rebounds, shooting a career-high 44 percent on 3-pointers.

“His No. 1 thing going into free agency was to be with the Pistons,” Tolliver’s agent, LarryFox, told The News. “He (eventually) wanted to retire a Piston. Anthony has a great relationship with (Pistons owner) Tom Gores. He really wanted to be there, but at the end of the day, they couldn’t go into the luxury tax.”

Tolliver, 33, has also spent time with the Golden State Warriors, San Antonio Spurs, Portland Trail Blazers, Charlotte Hornets, Phoenix Suns and Sacramento Kings.

This is his second stint with the Timberwolves.
