Former Kickapoo star Anthony Tolliver is on the move again.
According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Tolliver has been traded from Portland to the Sacramento Kings.
Portland is receiving Trevor Ariza, Wendell Gabriel and Caleb Swanigan as a part of the deal, according to Wojnarowski. The Trail Blazers are also sending Kent Bazemore and two second-rounders as a part of the deal.
Tolliver spent the 2016-17 season in Sacramento.
The former Kickapoo Chief had a brief stint with Portland in 2010. He was playing in the NBA Developmental League when the Blazers signed him to a short-term contract in December. He was released late in the month after appearing in just two minutes in two games and signed a few weeks later with the Golden State Warriors.
At 34 years old, the 6-foot-8 power forward will be entering his 12th season in the NBA.
Over his career, Tolliver has started in 101 games while appearing in 697. He’s averaged 19.8 minutes, 6.3 points and 3.4 total rebounds per game.
In this season with Portland, he’s started nine games while making 33 appearances. He’s averaging 3.9 points and 3.3 rebounds per game.
Tolliver enjoyed his best season as a pro in 2009-10 when he played primarily for the Warriors. He averaged 11.7 points and 5.1 rebounds per game during the season.
He began his career in 2008 as a member of the San Antonio Spurs. Tolliver went undrafted in 2007 when he was coming out of Creighton.
Tolliver spent a season with the Iowa Energy in the NBA Development League before playing overseas in 2008 until he was signed by the Spurs.
Tolliver helped Kickapoo win a state championship in 2003 and set forth to Creighton. He appeared in 27 games as a true freshman and became a starter his sophomore year. He graduated as a first-team all-Missouri Valley Conference player.
