Greek Team Panathinaikos Interested In Anthony Tolliver

It seems Panathinaikos B.C. is looking for an NBA big man. After reports surfaced Monday that the club had interest in 16-year NBA veteran Ben Wallace, today it’s also been confirmed the European powerhouse is pursuing free agent forward Anthony Tolliver. Via “‘Panathinaikos has definitely expressed strong interest and their coaching staff loves Anthony (Tolliver),’ agent Larry Fox said. ‘While Anthony is flattered by their interest and the potential economics behind it, we are currently in discussions with several NBA teams. While we won’t rule out Greece, the interest level from the NBA remains strong and we are continuing to pursue those options.’ Tolliver averaged 4.1 ppg and 3.4 rpg with the Timberwolves in 2011-12. Panathinaikos, a six-time Euroleague champion, is looking to strengthen its team after losing the Finals of the Greek League last season following a nine-year winning streak in the local tournament.”
