Timberwolves Sign Free Agent Tolliiver to One-Year Deal


On Monday the Minnesota Timberwolves delved into NBA free agency with the signing of forward Anthony Tolliver. The Timberwolves didn't have much cap space to begin this summer and the Tolliver deal will take up a pretty good chunk of what was there. Tolliver signed a 1-year $5.75 million contract, bringing Tolliver back to Minnesota. Tolliver previously played for the Wolves in the 2010 and 2011 seasons. Last year he averaged 22 minutes per game with nine points per game but the real reason the Wolves were interested was his three-point shooting. Tolliver shot 4.6 three-pointers per game (more than any Timberwolves player last year) and made 43.6% of those attempts which should provide much needed scoring from the perimeter.
