The Portland Trail Blazers signed free agent power forward journeyman Anthony Tolliver $2.6 million deal. Tolliver, a 34 year old veteran has played for nine teams including, Portland, Minnesota, Sacramento, Phoenix, Detroit, Charlotte, Golden State, Atlanta, and San Antonio.
Most recently Tolliver played for Minnesota where he averaged 5 points 3 and 3 rebounds in 17 minutes per game. He shot abiut 38% from three, a skill that will be helpful to the Trail Blazers.
He will add another big body to a Portland team that is now mostly wings and guards after several trades and signings this offseason. Tolliver was a Blazer ten years ago, during the 2009/2010 season. He only played in two games after being signed from the Stampede.
Tolliver is an excellent shooter from distance and provides a hard working, physical player who can help at both ends of the floor.
