The Minnesota Timberwolves looking for veteran help appear to be nearing a one year deal with Anthony Tolliver, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports.

Tolliver played two seasons for the Wolves before starting in 2010 and was a fan favorite during his time with the team. He played with the Detroit Pistons last year and in February told reporters he was willing to come back to Detroit, but also wanted to test free agency.

“It’s about opportunity, it’s about having a defined role, it’s about being in a system that works for me,” Tolliver said in February via the Springfield News-Leader. “Things are going really well for me here and I would prefer to stay here over anywhere else, but things happen, things change, priorities change so I don’t even really worry about it until the time comes.”\

Tolliver can play small or power forward and loves to shoot it from the outside. Last year he attempted 363 shots from deep and made 43.6 percent of them. He is used to playing a good chunk of minutes, and the Timberwolves will lean on him off the bench.

There were a few teams interested in Tolliver’s services including the Los Angeles Clippers who flew to his house trying to close the deal. Ultimately he decided on the Timberwolves and will be a great addition for their bench.

The deal is expected to be in the $5-6 million range and will leave the Wolves strapped for cash now. The signing will take up most of their mid-level exception, so don’t expect the Wolves to sign many more guys to contracts this offseason.
