The 76ers waived Tolliver on Friday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Tolliver's contract was set to become guaranteed at the end of Friday, so the 76ers decided cut ties with the aging veteran. Philadelphia acquired Andre Drummond and Georges Niang this offseason to bolster their depth behind Tobias Harris and Joel Embiid, making Tolliver dispensable. The 36-year-old could find another team for the 2021-22 season as a veteran bench presence, but his fantasy impact will be minimal at best.
Tolliver is expected to sign with the 76ers for the remainder of the season, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. The 14-year veteran is coming off a second 10-day deal with the 76ers. He's appeared in five games and has averaged 1.6 points and 1.6 rebounds in 12.4 minutes. He's unlikely to see meaningful playing time in games that the 76ers are fully healthy.
Tolliver signed a second 10-day contract with the 76ers on Thursday, Marc Narducci of the Philadelphia Inquierer reports. Tolliver appeared in just one game during his first 10-day deal. He played 14 points and posted two rebounds, one assist and one block. It seems likely he'll continue to have a small role with the team.
Tolliver will be available to make his 76ers debut Wednesday night against Brooklyn, Michael Kaskey-Blomain of CBS Sports reports. The veteran forward signed a 10-day deal over the weekend but had to wait a few days while passing through the health and safety protocols. He'll be available for coach Doc Rivers off the bench Wednesday but is unlikely to hold enough of a role to achieve relevance in most fantasy formats.
Tolliver is signing a 10-day contract with the 76ers, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. It's possible he joins the team for Monday's game against the Mavericks. The veteran last played with Memphis during the NBA bubble this past season, appearing in nine games and averaging 4.7 points and 2.7 rebounds in 18.1 minutes. Tolliver likely won't see many minutes with the 76ers, however, as the forward will play behind starter Tobias Harris and his backup Mike Scott.
