Power forwards the Atlanta Hawks need to avoid in free agency No. 2) Anthony Tolliver

Anthony Tolliver is another veteran who has been in the league for a little too long. While it is good for teams to have veterans around them to help mentor some of the younger players, it is often good if that veteran is productive on the floor as well.

Unfortunately, age has robbed Tolliver of his ability to be effective. He averaged 1.5 points and 0.9 rebounds in just 9.0 minutes per game. Tolliver only played 11 games for the Philadelphia 76ers towards the end of the season.

He was also woefully inefficient when he hit the floor as well. Tolliver hit just 23.5 percent of his field-goal attempts. He went slightly better from 3-point land, going at 28.6 of his attempts from beyond the arc. This means that Tolliver missed most of his shots from inside the arc pointing to him not being able to match it inside anymore.

The Hawks have a number of veterans on the team now and all of them are producing in some capacity as well as mentoring the younger brigade. The Hawks need a player who is able to hit the court and play within the Hawks gameplan and Tolliver is now past that.
