P.J. Tucker will sign with the Philadelphia 76ers on a reported three-year, $33.2 million deal, Shams Charania of The Athletic has reported.
As expected, Tucker will rejoin his former close teammate, James Harden, in downtown Philly. Franchise big Joel Embiid was hardly campaigning for the club to chase Tucker this offseason.
Tucker is off from a great 2021-2022 season with the Miami Heat, averaging 7.6 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 27.9 minutes while shooting 45.1 percent from three. He took a gamble and turned down his player option to ink a much bigger paycheck.
Other than Tucker, lead executive Daryl Morey has snagged two familiar and former Houston Rockets members, as swingman Danuel House has agreed on a two-year, $8.5MM deal (via Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN) and Trevelin Queen (link).
