Rival Executives Believe P.J. Tucker Lands with Sixers
The Sixers still need to add a piece or two before the end of the season, to make a deep playoff run this season.
Some of the names that will continue to be out there include Kyle Lowry, Victor Olidipo, and Lou Williams.
However one name to keep an eye on is Rockets forward P.J. Tucker, who several rival execs believe will ultimately land in Philadelphia, per Tom Haberstroh of TrueHoop. According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, multiple teams have expressed interest in acquiring Tucker. Keep in mind, Tucker played for Sixers executive Daryl Morey during his time with the Rockets.
Tucker isn't having a very good season, averaging just 4.4 points and 4.6 rebounds, shooting just 31% from 3-point range in 29.9 minutes per game.
He is a very good defender, and has been a better shooter, and could be a product of a struggling Rockets team. If Morey can get his hands on Tucker for minimal value, he would definitely be a nice addition.
The Sixers could use Tucker to help in a series against offensive-minded teams like Brooklyn and Milwaukee, or even help matchup with teams like the Heat, Celtics and Raptors.
