Sixers to sign Anthony Tolliver for remainder of season
As the NBA regular season winds down and the Sixers begin gearing up for what will hopefully be a deep playoff push, Daryl Morey isn’t done making moves. Per Shams Charania, the 76ers are going to sign Tolliver to a deal for the rest of the season after back-to-back ten-day contracts.
Tolliver has played in five games for the Sixers so far this season, with a majority of his minutes coming with Philly dealing with injury issues. His most notable appearance came in the second loss to the Bucks where he logged 21 minutes while only taking one shot and grabbing two boards. Tolliver has also seen the court in blowout wins, getting on the court for 17 minutes against the Thunder and scoring six points.
Tolliver is a veteran presence in the locker room with a long list of playoff appearances in his career. He adds depth in the frontcourt in case injuries flare up again, sliding in at the four if needed. If Mike Scott struggles in the postseason don’t be surprised if Rivers turns to Tolliver to come into the game to get Harris some rest. Tolliver also remains a reliable three-point threat, as he holds a career 37% shooting from beyond the arc.
