What’s next for the 6-8 free-agent power forward? He’d love to return but knows it’s a business, so several factors will determine his future this summer. “This is where I call home. I’ve been here longer than anywhere else in my career and would love to keep that going,” Tolliver said near the end of the season. “But at the end of the day, got to see what’s up this summer. You never know what teams are going to do, what organizations are going to do. So much unpredictable stuff that between now and then you never know. My heart is definitely here in Detroit.”

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.

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.”

If you put on that jersey and go out there and play, you’ve got to produce. You’ve got to do what they got you here to do. So 40, 50, 95, 100 [percent], I’m out there playing. Nobody cares if I’m nicked up or not.”
