Analysis: Phoenix signed Tolliver to a two-year, $6 million contract in the offseason, with the idea it would help make up for the loss of Channing Frye. But Tolliver played sparingly and was not part of the regular rotation as the season went on. He played in 24 games for the Suns, averaging 3.3 points per game.

Analysis: The two sides reached a deal last week. This is the seventh NBA team for the 6-foot-8 Tolliver, an accurate 3-point shooter who could help fill the void left by the departure of Channning Frye. The two-year contract is worth $6 million, but only $400,000 is guaranteed in the second season. Tolliver shot a career-high 41 percent from 3-point range for Charlotte last season, averaging 6.1 points and 2.6 rebounds in 64 games.

Both spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal has not been officially announced. Only $400,000 of the second year of the contract is guaranteed.
Analysis: The 6-foot-8 forward averaged 6.1 points and 2.6 rebounds in 64 games last season with Charlotte, his sixth team in six NBA seasons. Tolliver shot 42 percent from 3-point range, and the Suns see him as a "stretch forward" to help fill the void created by the departure of Channing Frye, who opted out of the final year of his contract and signed with Orlando. Tolliver has a career average of 6.1 points.
