Agent Larry Fox confirmed a SportDay report that said Greek powerhouse Panathinaikos is very interested in his client Anthony Tolliver, but insisted the focus remains on getting a deal done in the NBA for the 6-foot-8 forward.
"Panathinaikos has definitely expressed strong interest and their coaching staff loves Anthony (Tolliver)," Fox told HoopsHype. "While Anthony is flattered by their interest and the potential economics behind it, we are currently in discussions with several NBA teams. While we won't rule out Greece, the interest level from the NBA remains strong and we are continuing to pursue those options."
Tolliver, who's No. 11 in HoopsHype's Free Agent Rankings right now, averaged 4.1 ppg and 3.4 rpg with the Timberwolves in 2011-12.
Panathinaikos, a six-time Euroleague champion, is looking to strengthen its team after losing the Finals of the Greek League last season following a nine-year winning streak in the local tournament.
