With just one open spot left on the Lakers roster, most thought it’d come down to the best remaining player out of training camp. However, that may not be the case for the Lakers. Anthony Tolliver, a possible stretch four option for the Lakers, told Fox Sports Florida that the Lakers have recently contacted him and expressed interest.
Tolliver said the Lakers recently called his agent, Larry Fox, to express interest. He said talks are still preliminary but he would have definite interest if the Lakers turn out to be a serious option. “Obviously, to have a chance to play for a franchise like that, you’d have to think long and hard about that,’’ the forward told FOX Sports Florida.
Tolliver played Hawks last season, getting action in 62 games, but averaging just 15.5 minutes a contest. However, he fits the mold of an athletic stretch four option as Tolliver shot 33.8% from downtown last year and is a career 32.5% 3-point shooter. With the Timberwolves in 2010-11, he connected on over 40% of his threes, something the Lakers could really use.
