Hahaha. PJ is an awesome guy, fan favorite, and 100% a garbage man on any team. We need fucking scoring in the worst way.
Hell no. I celebrated the day he left Phoenix

I definitely remember him being on your shit list. :lol:

What if it's a rendezvous with his buddy KD in Phoenix?

Lol. No. Still no. I can’t stand players that can’t stay in their role (Mcgee, Mike James, Tucker)

He’s literally the only starter who scores like 5 points, 2-5 fgs, 4 rebounds, 1 steal. And is thought to have had a good game.

That's how I remember PJ in Phoenix last time as well too. But that was before he'd ever been really paid or won a title.

He's not at that same point in his career anymore and wouldn't try to do anything outside of his role. He changed, and I think you can too.

The only issue I foresee is his salary as he just opted out of a pretty sizeable deal. But maybe that's just his way of changing teams?

Tucker has been a real mercenary of late. On some very successful teams I might add.

I like PJ Tucker, but if he opted out of $7 mil on that really good Miami team, he wants money and years. I don't want to pay him that much.

I think he'll re-sign in Miami. Something like 2-3yr/$12-16M.

Shocking news that John Wall picked up his $47 million option year.

Who could have seen that coming?

Sources: Sixers pursuing P.J. Tucker; Matisse Thybulle and No. 23 pick being shopped to create cap space

https://www.inquirer.com/sixers/sixers- ... 20621.html
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.
Yeesh...

I assume that is like the MLE for 3 years but only the first is guaranteed.

Yeah, something like that because can you imagine 40-year-old PJ Tucker making $10M?

Beal is overpaid, but he's still a very good player. At the right contract (his next one, maybe) he'll be helpful to some team.

I’d like Burks but we obviously can’t just take on his salary

True but not sure how many teams would be willing take on his salary anyways. While not a full on salary dump, Suns could offer Payne and future second for him and save the Knicks about 4 million.

If they can’t get a full on salary dump then saving 4 million is better than nothing. It’s a low risk, high reward. They need a decent pg and if Payne has a bounce back year, it would be great deal for them and if not he’s only partially guaranteed next year any ways.
