The Pistons are reportedly interested in unrestricted free agent Anthony Tolliver.

The Pistons are looking to fill their 14th roster spot, and with them looking at both Tolliver and Jonas Jerebko, it would appear they'd like to bring on another power forward. That's an interesting standpoint for the team to take with Tobias Harris, Jon Leuer and Henry Ellenson already on the roster, but apparently, Stan Van Gundy can never have enough stretch-fours.

Kings waive F/C Anthony Tolliver.

The Kings got plenty of burn out of Tolliver last season with 1,477 total minutes in 65 games, averaging 7.1 points, 3.6 boards and 1.4 treys. Tolliver had a June 1 guarantee for next season, so the Kings will save some money here and elect to stretch the $2 million still owed to the big man. Tolliver is still 32 years old and he'll likely wind up at the end of a bench as a stretch four.
Jun 1 - 5:17 PM

Anthony Tolliver (rest) will not play Wednesday against the Clippers.

He played 22 minutes on Tuesday, so that opens up more run for Georgios Papagiannis and Skal Labissiere. Tolliver's contract for next season is not guaranteed.
Apr 12 - 4:58 PM

Anthony Tolliver (hip) is probable for Sunday's game vs. the Rockets.

He only played 15 minutes in his last outing, so there's just no fantasy appeal here. A DNP could be coming on Tuesday or Wednesday as well.
Apr 9 - 1:47 PM

Anthony Tolliver (hip) returned to action on Friday vs. the Lakers and finished with zero points, three boards and two assists in 15 minutes.

There's a good chance that the veteran is rested again on Sunday vs. Houston, so he's safe to leave on the wire.
Apr 8 - 1:39 AM

Anthony Tolliver (hip) is probable to play on Friday against the Lakers.

It's not really clear if the Kings will play Tolliver. With him being probable, it does make Skal Labissiere and Georgios Papagiannis slightly risky in deep leagues or DFS.
Apr 7 - 4:45 PM

Anthony Tolliver (rest) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Mavs.

Tolliver is going to be rested more than he plays for these final five games of the season, so he's safe to leave on the waiver wire in all settings. Skal Labisseire and Georgios Papagiannis will split most of his minutes.
Apr 4 - 2:45 PM

Anthony Tolliver (rest) returned to the lineup on Saturday vs. the Wolves, finishing with eight points, four rebounds, three assists and three blocks in 28 minutes.

The Kings were playing him down the stretch over Skal Labissiere, but coach Dave Joerger has always had a soft spot for his veterans. Tolliver is going to be rested too much going forward to matter in most fantasy leagues.
Apr 1 - 10:44 PM

Anthony Tolliver (rest) will not play Friday vs. the Pelicans.

This is the third time the Kings have rested Tolliver over the past two weeks. There will likely be another game or two he sits out before the regular season wraps up. Skal Labissiere and Georgios Papagiannis should get a bump with Tolliver out.
Mar 31 - 1:02 PM

Anthony Tolliver returned from a rest day to finish Sunday's thrilling comeback victory with 15 points 5-of-6 shooting, with all of his attempts coming from downtown.

Tolliver added three rebounds and one block in 23 minutes of action tonight. He's going to get occasional DNP-CDs down the stretch, even if the Kings don't eventually shut him down, which makes him undesirable even as a 3-point specialist.
Mar 26 - 6:59 PM

Anthony Tolliver will return vs. the Clippers on Sunday.

Tolliver was rested on Friday, along with Darren Collison, but both of those guys are active for today's game. Meanwhile, both Kosta Koufos and Arron Afflalo are getting the night off. This is going to be standard operating procedure the rest of the way for Sacramento's veterans.
Mar 26 - 3:23 PM

Anthony Tolliver will rest on Friday vs. the Warriors.

The Kings are calling it "planned rest," so expect Tolliver to be back in action on Sunday. With Tolliver out, Skal Labissiere should get a nice bump in minutes tonight.
Mar 24 - 8:45 PM

Anthony Tolliver scored 10 points with two rebounds and two 3-pointers against the Thunder on Saturday.

The Kings used him at the three at times in this game. Tolliver is likely going to be resting in several games to finish out the season, especially with both Skal Labissiere and Georgios Papagiannis playing better lately. Leave Tolliver on the wire.
Mar 18 - 5:30 PM

Anthony Tolliver will sit out Wednesday's game to rest.

The Kings rested multiple players on Monday and this is likely to become a trend down the stretch. Tolliver wasn't a reliable option for more than a handful of 3-pointers anyway, so most owners won't be affected by this news. Skal Labissiere should gain the most with Tolliver out tonight.
