NBA Free Agency 2017: Kings reportedly waive journeyman Anthony Tolliver

It appears that Anthony Tolliver's journeyman career is destined to continue. 

Few players have embodied that role more than Tolliver, who has played for nine teams in nine seasons, and spent more than one season in a row with a team just once, when he played two seasons in a row with the Minnesota Timberwolves from 2010-12. Now, Tolliver will once again be on the move, as Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical is reporting that the Sacramento Kings have waived the veteran forward. 

As is almost always the case with free agency transactions, this came down to money, as the Kings saved about $6 million by waiving Tolliver on June 1. 

Tolliver was his usual solid self for the Kings in what will be his lone season with the club. He put up 7.1 points and 3.6 rebounds per game, while spacing the floor as a stretch four. He hit 39 percent from downtown this season, making it five straight seasons now that he's shot at least 36 percent from 3-point land. 

Now a free agent, Tolliver will likely have at least a few suitors in the offseason, as teams look to bolster their bench units.
