Suns Ink Anthony Tolliver to 2-Year Deal

Sam Sharpe-USA TODAY Sports

The Suns, moving to replace the floor-stretching capabilities of Channing Frye, agreed to terms with free agent power forward Anthony Tolliver, most recently of the Charlotte Hornets.

According to RealGM's Shams Charania, the Suns and free agent Anthony Tolliver have agreed on a 2 year, $6 million dollar contract.

The 29 year old Tolliver is something of an NBA journeyman.  He has played for 6 teams over his 6 year career, including stints with Minnesota, Golden State and most recently Charlotte.

At 6'8 and 240 pounds, Tolliver is a small stretch forward, but thick.  Tolliver is a career 35% shooter from 3 point land. For his career, he has averaged 6.1 points, 3.7 rebounds and an assist in 20 minutes per game.

Last season with Charlotte, Tolliver had something of a career year from beyond the arc, though his rebounding numbers and 2pt shooting percentages were down.

For more information, you can reference this story our own Jacob Padilla wrote about Tolliver earlier this year for the Creightonian.

Tolliver confirmed the signing on his Twitter account shortly after Charania broke the news.
