The Sacramento Kings have plenty of difficult decisions to make this offseason. One of those decisions was to choose between picking up veteran forward Anthony Tolliver’s second year option at $8 million or buying out the final year for just $2 million. The Kings will do the latter, NBC Sports California has learned. After one season in Sacramento, Tolliver will not be retained by the Kings and will become an unrestricted free agent. Sacramento had until June 1 to make the decision on the veteran’s contract.

Shams Charania: Free agent forward Anthony Tolliver is nearing agreement on a two-year deal with the Sacramento Kings, league sources tell The Vertical.
Tolliver, 30, wants to remain in Detroit, but he knows the prospects are murky. “Who knows what’s going to happen,” Tolliver said. “I’ve been in this league long enough to know nothing’s promised. I feel good about my role here, and how I’ve helped this team in many different ways — on and off the court. “But at the end of the day, it’ll be up to my agent and the team to see if we can figure something out and see if we can make it a long-term home.”
“I would love to stay here. I’ve been bouncing around a lot in my career,” Tolliver said. “I feel comfortable here, and I feel like what I bring to the table fits what this team needs. Also having a veteran in a young crowd is a good thing, so hopefully things can get worked out. If everything works out, that’d be great.”

Larry Nance Jr. could be back on the court for the Lakers as early as Monday, barely three weeks after undergoing surgery to repair a fracture in his left hand. The third-year power forward has been practicing with the team since his cast came off on Nov. 14. After playing Wednesday at Sacramento, the Lakers will go four days before their next game, Monday against the Clippers.

As he sat at his locker after returning from a five-game layoff, only to be part of an 11th loss in 12 games, Patrick Beverley expressed how “pissed off” he was. “This … feels like 100 losses,” Beverley said. “Straight up. This … is weak. This ain’t how I roll. That ain’t OK and I won’t allow it to be OK as long as I’m here. That’s a fact.”
“Hell no,” Beverley said. “We just got to play harder. That’s it. We just got to play harder. You get rid of the mistakes by playing hard. We’re not playing hard; the first unit, not the whole team. I challenged the first unit to play harder.”
Lillard says the two never had a problem, and that Aldridge has already heard everything he says in this article. Lillard’s point in bringing up his experience with Aldridge is that it helped shape his approach in how to mentor Nurkic. “Me and LaMarcus had a good relationship. We never had a single argument. We really got along,’’ Lillard said. “I’m just saying the stuff I want to go out of my way to do for (Nurkic), is the stuff I wish I got from LaMarcus.’’
Leaning in, Lillard tousled Nurkic’s hoodie, then took a seat next to him. What would follow is another layer in what is a powerful and unique relationship between two of the team’s pillars. “I know what it’s like to be young and counted on,’’ Lillard later explained. The relationship is powerful in how it has impacted Nurkic. “Damian Lillard,’’ Nurkic said, “is the best thing that has happened to me in my life.’’
What’s in front of the Timberwolves is a chance to become the type of team Thibodeau always envisioned, with Butler serving as the steady hand who can take games over late, something Thibodeau was sorely lacking a year ago. “A lot of things have changed since we’ve been here, since this team has been together — for the better,” Butler said. “I think we can continue in this direction because we all expect so much from one another, from the organization”
