Anthony Tolliver

Overview:

This team is pretty set. They fixed a lot of the depth problems the last couple of seasons with the additions of Tomas Satoransky, Kelly Oubre, and Mike Scott. But I think that Tollliver fits their system better. He basically only takes threes, plays hard on defense, and can play center in small ball lineups. He can open driving lanes for Wall, and fits next to their other starters with different lineups. The Wizards biggest hurdle is staying healthy. They need John Wall for 70 games to be a top team in the east, and more development from Oubre, Porter, and Beal is very important. If they can find a way to unload salary, they could try to find more established starters to add to this team. Mahimi’s contract needs to be moved, and Porter is way overpaid for what he does. Demarcus Cousin’s has been linked to them in the past, but a sign and trade would be needed and that could get messy.
