NBA Free Agency 2012: Cleveland Cavaliers, Minnesota Timberwolves Front-Runners For Anthony Tolliver

According to a report by Chris Tomasson, the Cleveland Cavaliers and Minnesota Timberwolves are the favorites to land the services of free agent forward Anthony Tolliver.

Via Tomasson's Twitter stream:

"Minnesota and Cleveland are the frontrunners,'' said Tolliver, who played the past two seasons for the Timberwolves. "But the last time around (when Tolliver was a free agent in 2010), Minnesota wasn't a frontrunner and came on at the end.''

In addition, Tolliver told Tomasson that the Atlanta Hawks, Chicago Bulls, Dallas Mavericks and Washington Wizards have all expressed interest in acquiring the 27-year old's services.

Tolliver said that the Miami Heat also expressed interest but ultimately backed off after they signed Rashard Lewis last week.

In 2012, Tolliver averaged 4.1 points, 3 rebounds and 17.3 minutes per game in 51 games played with the Timberwolves.
