The Phoenix Suns have traded forward Anthony Tolliver to the Detroit Pistons in exchange for Tony Mitchell.

Tolliver wasn't in the rotation in Phoenix and we don't see him playing a lot for the rebuilding Pistons, so this news shouldn't matter in most leagues. Tony Mitchell, on the other hand, has some potential but will likely be waived by the Suns. Stay tuned.
Dec 24 - 12:40 PM

Anthony Tolliver made both attempts from the field for seven points with six rebounds, two 3-pointers and two turnovers in 19 minutes against the Lakers on Wednesday.

He is going to take a lot of triples and may actually be near 1.0 makes per game. Tolliver is still not a fantasy option in almost any format.
Oct 30 - 3:41 AM

Anthony Tolliver will get the start for the Suns' preseason game on Thursday.

Tolliver played 18 minute in his preseason debut, scoring 10 points and grabbing two boards. He missed some time this preseason with a cut on his finger, but now he is starting in the preseason and further cementing a rotation role in Phoenix. He will likely fill a stretch-four role of the bench and is not worth targeting in fantasy drafts.

Anthony Tolliver (finger) played 18 minutes in his preseason debut against the Nuggets on Friday, scoring 10 points with two rebounds, one steal and three 3-pointers.

He is a poor man's version of Channing Frye and the Suns will find a role for him. Tolliver is still not worth drafting in most formats.
Oct 11 - 12:50 AM

Anthony Tolliver (hand) says he will make his Suns debut against Denver on Friday.

"Yeah, I'm going to play tomorrow," said Tolliver about his status on Thursday. He suffered a cut on his finger October 3rd and required three stitches. He signed a 2-year, $6 million contract this offseason with the Suns for what likely be a reserve role.
Oct 9 - 5:40 PM

Anthon Tolliver (hand) could play in the preseason game on Friday.

He will get the stitches out of his hand on Thursday and has been at practice with the team. Tolliver looked a little tired during the team's televised training camp on Tuesday, so he'll likely be eased back into his role. He'll only be a second-unit guy.
Oct 8 - 2:20 PM

Anthony Tolliver got his finger caught in a jersey and tore the webbing between his right pinky and ring finger at practice on Friday.

The cut required three stitches, but he's expected to be ready for the Suns' preseason opener on October 8. Tolliver will fight for minutes behind twin brothers Markieff and Marcus Morris, and he's not going to be a guy worth drafting in most leagues.
Oct 3 - 3:29 PM

The Phoenix Suns and Anthony Tolliver have agreed on a 2-year, $6 million contract.

"It’s a great opportunity for me," Tolliver said. "With a great nucleus of young players, and the respect I have for Ryan [McDonough], Jeff Hornacek and the entire organization, it’s a perfect situation." Tolliver has been a journeyman so far in his NBA career as this will be his seventh team in as many seasons in the NBA. He shot a career-high 41.3 percent from beyond the arc last season and will provide quality depth for the Suns.
Jul 16 - 9:46 AM

Coach Steve Clifford said has "a lot of faith" in Anthony Tolliver and could play him more on Wednesday if the Heat go small.

The Bobcats will probably need some help in 3-pointers to hang with Miami. One obvious connection here is how Tolliver could be a part of the solution should the Bobcats not have Al Jefferson for his normal allotment of minutes. He played just five minutes in Game 1's loss, so he's probably not going to have a huge impact tonight.
Apr 23 - 5:38 PM

Anthony Tolliver turned in his second consecutive productive game on Friday night, scoring 13 points with two boards, one assist and four 3-pointers in 23 minutes.

He put up a 16-point game on Wednesday night and is looking at another opportunity on Saturday vs. the Cavs due to Josh McRoberts (ankle) already being ruled out. If you're looking for points and triples out of your power forward spot, Tolliver is on the short list of options.
Apr 4 - 9:44 PM

Anthony Tolliver came off the bench for 16 points, eight rebounds, five assists and four 3-pointers in Wednesday's blowout of the Sixers.

With Josh McRoberts (ankle, day-to-day) sidelined, Cody Zeller started at power forward. Tolliver came in firing and didn't stop once garbage time hit early, bringing back memories of when he went on a fantasy tear while in Minnesota. But with McRoberts' injury not considered serious and Zeller the immediate backup, we wouldn't make an add here.
Apr 2 - 10:10 PM

Anthony Tolliver got hot during 25 reserve minutes in Oklahoma City on Sunday, scoring 17 points with four 3-pointers.

He didn't get any rebounds, assists, steals or blocks, and it will take far more than one fluky shooting night for him to cobble together fantasy value. He was joined in double-digits by fellow reserves Cody Zeller (10 points) and Gary Neal (12 points), both of whom are just as dubious in standard fantasy leagues.
Mar 2 - 10:04 PM

Anthony Tolliver scored a season-high 22 points against the Mavericks on Tuesday with one board and five 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

It actually wasn't a garbage-time special with just six of his points coming in the fourth quarter. Tolliver has actually been effective from deep over his last four, making a total of 13 treys on his way to 13.3 points per game. This is a little fluky and Tolliver is only worth a look for trey-needy owners in deep leagues.
Feb 11 - 9:52 PM

Anthony Tolliver scored 14 points with one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers in 21 minutes vs. the Suns on Saturday.

He scored 11 points in the fourth quarter and got the most out of garbage time. Tolliver's fantasy value is unchanged at this point, averaging 5.3 points and 2.0 boards in 22.3 minutes per game over his previous 10 games. Adjust accordingly.
