Former Portland Trail Blazers forward Anthony Tolliver and the Sacramento Kings are nearing an agreement for his release. Shams Charania of The Athletic broke the news today.

Tolliver started the season in Portland after signing as a free agent last summer, agreeing to a one-year, minimum deal. Along with Mario Hezonja, he was expected to bring veteran bench depth to the Blazers rotation. After he averaged just 33.7% shooting from the three-point arc in 33 appearances, the Blazers included him in a January trade that brought Trevor Ariza to Portland. Tolliver has appeared 9 times for the Kings since, shooting 13.3% from distance, 17.6% from the field overall.
