Washington Wizards Pursuing Anthony Tolliver

Free agent forward Anthony Tolliver, who played the last two seasons with the Minnesota Timberwolves, has attracted interest from the Washington Wizards. The two sides are in discussions to work out a deal, but Tolliver’s agent claims there is no way his client will agree to sign a minimum salary contract. The Washington Post has the details: “After using the amnesty provision to cut Andray Blatche and signing Price, the Wizards have reached out to several players, including the recently amnestied swingman Josh Childress, forward Anthony Tolliver and shooting guard Jodie Meeks. But there is no urgency to sign someone because they believe that they already have decent depth at every position and might have to wait to find a player willing to accept their minimum salary offer. Tolliver’s agent, Larry Fox, said recently that his client shares a mutual interest with the Wizards but is ‘not in the minimum game.’ ‘You look at Washington’s roster, he’d probably be a decent fit there. They don’t have a guy at the forward position that can step out and shoot the ball and that’s a main part of Anthony’s game,’ Fox said.”
