Former Creighton basketball player Anthony Tolliver signed a free agent deal with the Portland Trail Blazers.

Terms of his contract were not disclosed, but The Athletic reported earlier this week that Tolliver received a one-year contract worth $2.6 million. This will be Tolliver's second stint in Portland after he played in two games for the Blazers in 2009, his second NBA season.

Tolliver, who went undrafted coming out of Creighton, will be entering his 12th season in the NBA and he's played for nine different teams. 

He spent last season with the Minnesota Timberwolves. He played in 65 games off the bench, averaging 5.0 points, 2.7 rebounds and 0.7 assists in 16.6 minutes per game. Tolliver has more than 4,200 points and 2,200 rebounds in his career.

“Anthony is a consummate professional with an elite skill that will translate immediately into our system while providing leadership in our locker room,” said Neil Olshey, Portland's president of basketball operations, in a press release.

At Creighton from 2003-07, Tolliver was first-team All-Missouri Valley Conference during his senior season after averaging 13.4 points, 6.7 rebounds and 1.8 blocked shots. Tolliver ranks sixth in program history with 136 blocked shots, 19th with 603 rebounds and 41st with 1,004 points.

In August he'll join Doug McDermott in being inducted to the Creighton Athletics Hall of Fame.
