Many teams inquired about PJ Tucker’s availability after James Harden got traded to the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday.
According to Kelly Iko and Sam Amick of The Athletic, Tucker is not opposed to the idea of playing for Houston until the end of the season.
The 35-year-old previously signed a four-year, $32 million deal with the Rockets in his first year with the team back in the 2017-2018 season.
According to Iko and Amick, the Rockets offered a contract extension to Tucker, but as of now the veteran did not accept it.
“Sources say Tucker is prepared to play for Houston for the season even without his future tied down, but he is not opposed to a trade should one materialize. It’s understood that an extension offer is on the table at this point, but Tucker has not accepted it. Teams have already made a number of phone calls to Houston about potentially acquiring Tucker.”
Tucker is on his final year of his contract and he will be an unrestricted free agent next summer. He is averaging 5.8 points, 5.0 assists and 1.8 assists per contest through 11 games this season.
