The Sacramento Kings are buying out Anthony Tolliver, according to a report from The Athletic’s Sham Charania.
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 came to Sacramento with Kent Bazemore as part of the trade that sent out Trevor Ariza. Tolliver has played in just one of the Kings’ last 8 games.
Tolliver’s exit is largely inconsequential. What will be interesting to see if what the Kings have planned for the roster spot. The Kings could bring DaQuan Jeffries onto the regular roster. Jeffries is on a two-way contract but has been playing well in Stockton as of late.
The Kings could also use the spot to bring back Eric Mika, who had been on a 10-day contract but had to be waived to complete the trade with the Hawks the brought in Alex Len and Jabari Parker.
