The Chicago Bulls have been rumored to be interested in signing free agent center Anthony Tolliver for over a week, but they may have to strike quickly if they still hope to add the 27-year-old to their roster. Tolliver recently told Chris Tomasson of FOX Sports that the Cleveland Cavaliers and Minnesota Timberwolves are the front runners for his services, ahead of other suitors like the Atlanta Hawks, Dallas Mavericks, Chicago Bulls and Washington Wizards.
Tolliver has posted a career Player Efficiency Rating (PER) of just 12.0, and his during his most recent season with the Timberwolves he posted the lowest PER value (8.3) since his rookie season (7.6) and also recorded the lowest rebounding rates of his career. Is he worth all the fuss? In a free agent market where most seven-foot centers are signing deals with eight-figure annual salaries, Tolliver is still expected to be a cheap option for next season.
