Lakers Interested in Anthony Tolliver

According to Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports Florida, the Lakers have shown interest in free agent forward Anthony Tolliver:

An interesting development because as of this morning, Tolliver was reportedly down to three teams: Bulls, Jazz, and Bobcats.  Tomasson says that Tolliver, 28, is looking for a situation where he can play power forward opposed to the small forward spot he played last year with the Atlanta Hawks.

Last season, Tolliver, averaged 4.1 points and 2.5 rebounds per game.  He had his best season with the Golden State Warriors in 2009-10, averaging 12.3 points and 7.3 rebounds while playing 32.3 minutes a game.

It should be noted that the 6’8 forward played for new Lakers assistant coach Kurt Rambis in 2010-11, averaging 6.7 points on 40% shooting from three.
