    ...to whine and complain about his contract and negotiations?? Bro, you’re lucky you’re in Houston.. anywhere else and you’re a certified bench player. Hell I’d start Tate over you man.

    What a joke.

    Other than the one 3 in the 4th he was pretty trash offensively and hit/miss defensively. Weak link of the night.

    he's a bum that is lucky to have the contract he does. just cause they stupidly extended eric gordon doesn't mean they'll make the same mistake with you.

    Honestly, he was given a loooooong leash last season, because of all the punishment he had to endure, with defending the opposing teams' best big.

    But now, we have Wood and Cousins - Tucker really doesn't have that particular safety net to fall back on.

    Tucker, by virtue of not having to exert himself that much on defending bigs, should actually produce better offensive numbers. If not, then trade him.

    Love the guy, but, yeah, he really is in the ideal situation. He’s lucky as hell but doesn’t seem to know it.

    You dudes are lucky to have PJ Tucker on your team. And you especially dont watch the defensive side of the ball.

    Tucker doesn't need to be playing this many minutes, but it's because of necessity. I'm hoping Tate keeps playing solid and can allow coach to manage PJs minutes.

    I'm fine trading Tucker/House/Clemons/Pistons FRP for Aaron's Gordon. What you think @D-rock ? Damn hard cap.

    Stop it man, he played good D? On who? 11 boards per 42mins, that’s not a lot, he’s getting old man, yeah maybe he can still bang inside a lil bit, but he can not guard the perimeter

    No one will take Clemons. Tucker, EG, House plus the Pistons FRP for Aaron Gordon and fillers is the best that we can do.

    Clemons is an obvious throw in. Magic can afford to cut him. Give them an SRP to do it.
