Blazers to add Anthony Tolliver

That didn’t take long. From Jorge Seirra of

The Trail Blazers, who were awarded yesterday the option to sign a 16th player to their roster, will give a contract today to Anthony Tolliver, sources told Tolliver, a 6-foot-9 forward with good shooting skills, played with the San Antonio Spurs for two months last season and also had a 10-day stint with the New Orleans Hornets. He was currently playing in the NBDL with the Idaho Stampede, where he was averaging 20.7 ppg and 9.9 rebounds and shooting 43 percent from three-point land.

Tolliver is expected to be in uniform Thursday night against Phoenix.

And I highly recommend reading Wendell Maxey’s detailed scouting report on Tolliver. He’s 6-foot-9, can shoot and can rebound. Sounds exactly like the type of guy Portland likes.

    Interesting. Interesting because this seems like a guy we’d be wise to keep on our roster for awhile moving forward, but it sounds like once Nic or Rudy come back, he’s gone.

    Or maybe there’s someone else who could just be traded for cash, someone in a season-long shooting slump…
