Anthony Tolliver (born June 1, 1985 in Springfield, Missouri) an American professional basketball player who is currently playing for the NBA's Golden State Warriors. A center/power forward, he attended Creighton University.

After going undrafted out of Creighton in 2007, he spent the preseason with the Cleveland Cavaliers, making the opening-day roster, but never playing. He spent much of the 2007–08 season with the Iowa Energy of the NBA Development League, averaging 11.5 points and 6.4 rebounds per game, before going abroad to join collegiate teammate Nate Funk with Eisbären Bremerhaven of the German Basketball Bundesliga. Following a stint in Germany which saw him average 14.3 points and 7.3 rebounds per game, he was signed by the San Antonio Spurs in July 2008.

Tolliver spent the early part of the 2008–09 campaign shuttling between San Antonio and Austin of the D-League. After appearing in 11 early games with San Antonio (averaging 3.5 points and 2.3 rebounds in 12.1 minutes per game), he was sent to Austin for six games, where he averaged 17.8 points and 7.8 rebounds in his second D-League stint. He appeared in eight more games with San Antonio before being waived January 7, 2009. He signed with Iowa again shortly after; he then signed with New Orleans after three games with Iowa. After his ten-day contract expired without renewal, he returned to Iowa for a third stint. He was averaging 12.6 points and 8.1 rebounds per game with the Energy when he signed with Galatasaray Café Crown of the Turkish Basketball League.
