Q. What was your offense like in the process of choosing to come to Atlanta? Anthony Tolliver. It was interesting. It was a very long offseason, something I didn’t want to do. The whole offseason, for the most part, I was planning on going back to Minnesota. We had mutual interest. I definitely had interest from other teams, including Atlanta. Things were lining up but toward the end of free agency, and approaching October, things closed off over there. I just made sure we kept in contact with the Hawks and a couple of other teams. This situation opened up and it ended up looking pretty good for me. Q. What makes this situation attractive for you? A. I think I’m unique. I think I’m a guy if you put on this roster can do a lot of different things. There are other things that guys can do here but what I bring to the table is unique. Once I saw that, I really felt like this would be a good situation for me. Atlanta Journal-Constitution

We’ll start with the injury report. Anthony Tolliver did not practice after he suffered a scratched cornea in Sunday’s exhibition game against the Heat. I spoke with Tolliver and he only expects to miss a few days. DeShawn Stevenson also did not practice in the non-contact workout, although he took part in free-throw shooting drills. Coach Larry Drew said Stevenson was sore after Sunday’s game. Zaza Pachulia (groin) and Devin Harris participated in the non-contact drills. Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Josh Smith may not hear the groans from the Philips Arena crowd when he squares up to take a 3-pointer this season. Why? Listen to Smith tell it. “You haven’t seen the roster?” Smith turned around a reporter’s question about his long-range shooting plans on a rebuilt Hawks roster. “We’ve got Kyle Korver, Devin Harris, Louis Williams, Anthony Morrow, Anthony Tolliver. Am I missing anyone? Jeff Teague. … So there we go. That answers that question. I didn’t even say my name did I? Call me mid-range shawty.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Tolliver said he will sign a one-year contract with the Hawks for the minimum of $915,852. He knew his time was done with the Timberwolves after they agreed Monday to sign power forward Louis Amundson to a one-year deal for the minimum of $1.07 million. FOXSports Florida

Chris Tomasson: Free-agent forward Anthony Tolliver on why he will be signing with Atlanta. “I just thought it was the best situation for me,’’ Tolliver said. “I just think they don’t have a lot of players like me. I think it’s a great opportunity.’’ Tolliver believes he will fit in well with the Hawks because he’s a big man who can step out and shoot the ball, something Atlanta doesn’t have. Sulia

Tolliver said by text Monday evening that Amundson's signing with the Wolves "absolutely" means he will sign elsewhere. Tolliver probably will sign either either Atlanta or Phoenix for the minimum, even though he has been holding out, waiting for more than that. Minneapolis Star-Tribune
