The Detroit Pistons added more depth to their frontcourt Tuesday by reportedly agreeing to a deal with free agent Anthony Tolliver.  

Per The Vertical's Shams Charania, Tolliver agreed to a one-year, $3.3 million deal with the Pistons. 

Tolliver played 124 games for the Pistons from 2014-16 after the Phoenix Suns sent him there in exchange for Tony Mitchell. He shot a respectable 36 percent from three-point range and averaged 6.3 points in parts of two seasons in Detroit. 

The 32-year-old spent last season with the Sacramento Kings. He appeared in 65 games, averaging 7.1 points and 3.6 rebounds, while his 39.1 three-point percentage was the third-best mark of his career. 

The Pistons needed more flexibility in their frontcourt after trading Marcus Morris to the Boston Celtics for Avery Bradley and a second-round pick. Tolliver is a role player who knows head coach Stan Van Gundy's system well, so he should be able to acclimate himself quickly.
