The Atlanta Hawks will employ Anthony Tolliver next season, who doesn’t sound all that thrilled about the way his time in Minnesota came to an end. Per Fox Sports: “No,’ Tolliver, a power forward, said when asked whether it was tough at all to leave the Timberwolves after two seasons. ‘It’s a business. They told me they were looking to bring me back… But they never really offered me anything. They had said signing me was a priority, but at the end of the day they didn’t move forward. Everything happens for a reason. It’s all part of the business.’ When the Timberwolves agreed to terms with Lou Amundson, another power forward on Monday, Tolliver knew it was time to leave. Tolliver made $2.05 million last season with the Timberwolves but will get a one-year minimum guaranteed deal from Atlanta worth $915,852. He said that’s become a ‘new normal’ in the NBA that teams are being more conservative with money.”
