Anthony Tolliver is critical of Timberwolves upon his exit. Said they never really offered to bring him back.
“No,’’ Tolliver, a power forward, said when asked whether it was tough at all to leave the Timberwolves after two seasons. “It’s a business. They told me they were looking to bring me back… But they never really offered me anything. They had said signing me was a priority, but at the end of the day they didn’t move forward. Everything happens for a reason. It’s all part of the business.’’
When the Timberwolves agreed to terms with Lou Amundson, another power forward on Monday, Tolliver knew it was time to leave.
Tolliver made $2.05 million last season with the Timberwolves but will get a one-year minimum guaranteed deal from Atlanta worth $915,852. He said that’s become a “new normal’’ in the NBA that teams are being more conservative with money.
Tolliver said Phoenix also was in the mix at the end but the Suns wanted him to come in for a workout first, unlike the Hawks.
