Pistons backup forward Anthony Tolliver would prefer to return to Detroit for the 2017-2018 season.
The Pistons have a tight cap situation so Tolliver may have to take less money to stay in Detroit. The backup big man was a major contributor this season and his 3-point shooting was vital to provide spacing for the big man duo of Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond. The 32-year-old hit 2.0 treys per game and finished top-180 in 22.2 minutes per game and would have a similar role if he ends up signing again. However, power forward Jon Leuer was injured most of the season and Tolliver originally left the Pistons in 2016 after they signed Leuer to a four-year, $42 million dollar deal. So the Pistons may not be able to afford enough money or a large enough role to Tolliver. The veteran has played for nine teams over his 10-year career so he will likely be looking for something long term as well.
