    Nice, great role player off the bench... 3 & D style. Wanted him at the trade deadline but it looks like Toronto took him as a rental.

    He's fuxxin tough and a Longhorn!

    CP3, Ariza, Tucker

    that's some real leadership around James

    they'll set the tone in the locker room

    You still need some... we have Capela and Anderson as proven NBA bigs right now... front court depth was a huge problem last season IMO

    I don't deny his toughness and there were games where he terrorized Harden (and vice versa), but ... is he really a 3&D guy? I've seen the D, not so sure about the 3.

    if Morey can swing a deal for Melo then I'll be really happy

    CP3
    Harden
    Ariza
    Melo
    Capela

    with Ego, Tucker, and Nene off the bench

    I'm hoping this can be done

    I think people are still on the "we can get PG13 AND MELO! YAYAYAY" high and completely forgot that there are other basketball players in the league.

    An Ariza clone. Tucker has the chops to check the opponent's best wing. Excellent 3&D player.

    Good attitude and work ethic. Excellent rebounder. Could probably lead the league in steals if he played 40 MPG.

    He doesn't have Iggy's handle or resume, but I'm happy with Tucker as a much cheaper alternative. Let GS pay $12-14M per year for their glue guy.

    Generally shoots in mid to high 30s from 3.

    I'm sure Tucker will be glad to be playing WITH James instead of against him for a change

    I like PJ a lot. But avg 8m a year? Price is kinda high to me. 4-5m is more reasonable to me:)

    his defense will provide a nice boost tho

    Too short.

    We should be adding length.

    Chris Paul - 6-0
    Eric Gordon - 6-4
    James Harden - 6-5
    PJ Tucker - 6-6
    Trevor Ariza 6-8

    We're way too damn short. Damn it.

    Steph Curry - 6-3
    Andre Iguodala - 6-6
    Shaun Livingston - 6-7
    Klay Thompson - 6-7
    Kevin Durant - 6-11

    Jesus ****, man. I like PJ but he's not an elite defender. He's good, no disrespect. I mean... I guess.

    From what I saw, he's inconsistent at best. Yeah, I shouldn't expect Steph Curry, but, I don't know. We'll see. Unless his defense drops due to age or something, it's still a solid pickup for the toughness alone.

    I don't know. Never thought he was a difference maker, and I don't mean a star, just literally isn't all that great. He doesn't have that reliable a 3 point shot, just simply doesn't attempt too much. I've watched him play this season more than most.
