The 76ers Want PJ Tucker

By: Tye Richmond

Could the Philadelphia 76ers get an NBA Champion on their team soon?

The NBA Offseason is finally here, and the rumors are heating and up about the 76ers being interested in PJ Tucker.

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Sixers are “pursuing former Houston power forward P.J. Tucker, league sources confirm. Sources have also said the Sixers are looking to make a three-team trade that could involve Matisse Thybulle and the No. 23 pick to create space. Sources have said the Sixers are attempting to trade Tobias Harris, but they are having a tough time getting teams to take on his lucrative contract.”

“But it became public on Monday that Tucker would opt out of his $7.4 million player option for the 2022-23 season with the Miami Heat to become a free agent. Multiple sources have the Sixers intending to offer him a three-year, $30 million contract. Time will tell what will happen. But a source added that there’s mutual interest between Tucker, 37, and the Sixers.”

I’ll be happy if the Sixers get PJ Tucker, but on a 3 year 30-million-dollar deal for someone who is 37 I’m not sure that I would do that. Especially if it means we have to give up Matisse Thybulle who is a top 10 defender in the NBA. I’m sorry I just can’t, if the Sixers are able to get rid of Tobias Harris’s contract and trade him and add another star player plus PJ Tucker, I’m all for it.

But I if I were Darly Morey, I could not give a 37-year-old player a “3-year” contract. Don’t get me wrong PJ Tucker is a player the Sixers need. A player who will do the dirty work and isn’t afraid of anybody, but 30 million dollars is a pretty penny. We’ll just have t see what happens.
