Tolliver agreed to a two-year, $16 million contract with the Kings, Sam Amick of USA Today reports. Tolliver has been quite the journeyman to this point in his NBA career, playing for eight teams in eight years. Now on the Kings, he'll be a backup to DeMarcus Cousins. Tolliver has averaged 6.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 19.5 minutes per game in his career, shooting 41 percent from the field. He'll likely see a comparable minute load with Sacramento this season.
Tolliver put up 15 points (5-10 FG, 5-9 3Pt) and eight rebounds in 39 minutes Wednesday against the Cavaliers. With a number of regulars resting in the regular season finale, Tolliver drew the start at power forward and set a season high in minutes. Once the playoffs begin for Detroit on Sunday, expect Tolliver to sink back to his usual role of 10-15 minutes off the bench.
Tolliver will draw the start in Wednesday's season finale versus the Cavaliers, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports. Tolliver will start at the power forward for Detroit Wednesday. He should see a relatively high workload. He averaged 5.0 points, 3.7 rebounds, 0.7 assists, and 1.0 steals in three starts this season.
Tolliver scored 17 points (6-9 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 1-3 FT) while adding four rebounds and two assists in 17 minutes off the bench during Saturday's win over the Nets. After not even getting on the court in the first half, Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy turned to Tolliver for a spark after the break and he responded by tying his season high in points. He's been getting a little more run recently, playing between 14 and 20 minutes in three of Detroit's last four games, but his playing time and production are too inconsistent for Tolliver to be on your fantasy radar.
Tolliver (knee) missed all three of his field-goal attempts (0-2 3Pt) while swiping one steal in nine minutes during the Pistons' 118-103 loss to the Hornets on Friday. Tolliver returned to the lineup after an eight-game absence, and was restricted as expected on Friday. His presence as a floor spacer at the four position has been missed by the Pistons, but Tolliver likely won't be worth targeting in standard leagues given his 20 minute per game average.
