With all of the high-impact free agents spoken for at this point in the offseason, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that a competent role player is drawing interest from multiple teams.

Anthony Tolliver has at least seven teams on the hook, reports Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports Florida. This is a similar situation to what Tolliver faced last year in the free agent process, before he ultimately landed with the Atlanta Hawks on a one-year deal.

This time around, it’s the Knicks, Magic, Spurs, Lakers, Bobcats, Jazz, and Bulls who are all reported to have some level of interest.

Tolliver was offered a one-year contract for the veteran’s minimum by the Bobcats after visiting Charlotte earlier this week. Here’s a little more on that potential connection:

During his visit, Tolliver met with general manager Rod Higgins, coach Steve Clifford and assistant coach Stephen Silas, once his assistant at Golden State. Tolliver said Silas and Bob Weiss, his assistant last year at Atlanta and now a Bobcats assistant, have been pushing for him to come to the Bobcats.

“Charlotte is an intriguing situation because of their roster and everything,’’ Tolliver said.

Tolliver will obviously shop around for a better offer that will guarantee him more dollars or an extra season. But if nothing else comes in, he’ll be a Bobcat next year.

Tolliver is a stretch four who had his best NBA year with the Warriors in 2010, when he averaged 12.3 points and 7.3 rebounds in 32.3 minutes per game that season.

    Charlotte’s roster is intriguing? More like nauseating…

      IDK about that. The roster isn’t as bad as we’re used to seeing. Just Don’t know what they’d want with Tolliver when they already have 4 PFs on the roster.

        What pfs u talking about? The ones with Byron Mullins, mcbob, injured tyrus Thomas? Well two are gone and mcbob sucks. And zeller so who else?

        They have a guy named Al Jefferson, IDK if you have heard of him. Another guy they got in the draft lottery named Bismack Biyombo who’s a Serge Ibaka-lite. Josh McRoberts (yeah, he sucks…bad) and Jeff Adrien who for some inexplicable reason is still under contract.

        Byron Mullens is on the Clippers.

        Tyrus Thomas got amnestied.

        Zeller is a center. Your welcome, class is over.

    They aren’t going to win too many games but its hardly nauseating. Kemba, hendo, hopefully improved mkg, zeller, al Jefferson. Not bad. Bobcat name is nauseating but that is going to be gone soon.
