10:32am: The Bobcats and Anthony Tolliver have reached agreement on a one-year deal, according to Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer (via Twitter).  The deal is fully-guaranteed and won't be finalized until Friday, according to Shams Charania of RealGM (on Twitter).  Tolliver is a client of Larry Fox, as shown in the Hoops Rumors Agency Database.

Tolliver, 28, reportedly narrowed his free agent choices down to the Bobcats, Bulls, and Jazz on Wednesday.  However, the scope of the search expanded once again when the Lakers entered the fray on Thursday and the Magic, Spurs, and Knicks continued their pursuit as late as yesterday.  

The 6'8" forward spent the 2012/13 season with the Hawks, averaging 4.1 PPG and 2.5 RPG in 62 games (15.5 MPG).  For his career, Tolliver has averaged 6.1 PPG and 4.0 RPG across five seasons.
