Minnesota Timberwolves Roster: Anthony Tolliver

Meet Anthony Tolliver, a forward for the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Anthony Tolliver was born on June 1, 1985 in Springfield, Missouri. Anthony Tolliver committed to Creighton in the fall of 2002. He was one of four players from his High School team to play Division I basketball.

At Creighton, Anthony Tolliver played in a reserve role during his freshman season behind veterans Brody Deren, Mike Grimes and Joe Dabbert, but saw action in 27 games.

After going undrafted out of Creighton in 2007, he spent the preseason with the Cleveland Cavaliers, making the opening-day roster, but never playing. He spent much of the 2007–08 season with the Iowa Energy of the NBA Development League, averaging 11.5 points and 6.4 rebounds per game, before going abroad to join collegiate teammate Nate Funk with Eisbären Bremerhaven of the German Basketball Bundesliga.

Following a stint in Germany which saw him average 14.3 points and 7.3 rebounds per game, he was signed by the San Antonio Spurs in July 2008.

After another trip to Europe and the D-League, Anthony Toliver ended up on the Golden State Warriors. During the 2009-2010 season with the Golden State Warriors, he averaged 12.3 points and 7.3 rebounds per game.

In the 2010 off-season, Tolliver joined the Minnesota Timberwolves on a two year deal worth $4.5 million.
