Wolves sign Tolliver and more
The Minnesota Timberwolves officially signed 6-foot-8 free-agent forward Anthony Tolliver to a deal reportedly worth $4.8 million over two years.
Tolliver, 25, averaged 12.3 points and 7.3 rebounds in 44 games last season with the Golden State Warriors. He has appeared in 65 NBA regular-season games over the past three seasons with Golden State, Portland and San Antonio. He scored a career-high 34 points against the Timberwolves on April 7 last season in Golden State's 116-107 win at Target Center.
Tolliver will be formally introduced to the local media Tuesday afternoon.

J.B. Bickerstaff’s closet is littered with hats.
Figuratively speaking, the Wolves assistant coach may wear more hats than any other member on the staff. One night, Bickerstaff coached Minnesota rookies and NBA hopefuls in a summer league game in Las Vegas. 48 hours later, he was preaching the importance of defense in front of 100 kids at a basketball clinic in Owatonna, MN on the Wolves Caravan.
