Sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium: Kings and forward Anthony Tolliver are finalizing a contract buyout that allows Tolliver to pursue opportunities with playoff contenders. March 1 is deadline for players to be released and playoff-eligible.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) February 29, 2020
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.
