NBA Free Agency 2012: Cleveland Cavaliers, Minnesota Timberwolves Favorites For Anthony Tolliver

On Friday afternoon, Chris Tomasson reported that the Cleveland Cavaliers and Minnesota Timberwolves are the two front runners to acquire 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 made it clear that the Miami Heat also expressed interest but ultimately backed off after they signed Rashard Lewis last week.
