    Tucker will get bought out so he can go to the Nets, that's why he put extension talks on hold.

    It's a win win for Tillman he gets to save that money and he does not have to take on any salary and it makes him look good to let a veteran go to a better team.

    We will see.

    Why else is he all of a sudden bought in?

    Maybe there should be a "Random Prediction Thread" like our beloved random trade thread.

    He bought in because his entire leverage calculation was based on a play-maker passing to him for wide open shots in the corner and that guy got traded thus exposing his lack of offensive skills. In other words, he had absolutely no other option.

    He HAS to buy in he's a 35 year old role player hoping to get a decent-sized contract next season lol. He throws a fit and plays like garbage and he'll be looking at BAE instead of a TP MLE.

    My random prediction is that this scenario happens with a 5.2% probability.

    We should slander Tucker like this. He's our best corner three point shooter, our best screen setter and still our best defender. Dude who does his thing night in and night out.

    It's being reported that he stopped negotiating an extension.

    Why would he do that?

    Probably isn’t getting what he wants and prefers to sign with a contender next year?

    this is just a weird Hill to die on brother. Why would he be playing if he were gonna be bought out? Rockets would have bought him out immediately after Harden. Why would he buy in to be bought out?

    PJ likely gets traded.

    I dont think we will buy him out. I think we will wait on him to make the decision to stay or be traded. Because we have the extension on the table for him and we told him that we can trade him to where ever he wants to go if he wants to be traded. Like you said at the end of the day its political move by the organization. It shows every other player in the league that this new regime will cater to the players. Every move that Stone has made has been solid. The big picture is to will in that new big time star sooner than later.

    He can be a good trade chip for someone younger. The team needs more defense and a faster offense.

    Agreed and I will double down.


    There is absolutely no chance he's bought out before the trade deadline.

    If the team sucks and if the team can't get back a FRP for him OR a young player (Thybulle/Cam Johnson types) , then the buy out becomes a possibility.

    I've never seen so many people act like a season is over when it literally has just begun. We lose the best player and all of a sudden there's no purpose in doing anything because we don't have false hopes of a championships. I didn't expect this place to just become full of quitters over night.

    Nobody is dying on anything, thats why its a random prediction.

    He could be playing so the heat is lifted from Tillman and everybody will focus on big meany Harden leaving.

    That's why he would buy in to be bought out.

    Just speculation I have no idea this is making you feel some kind of way.

    Because his leverage just got traded for 4 first rounders and 4 first round swaps.

    Wait wut?

    Did I say he was gonna be bought out before the deadline?

    I agree he could still be traded and the deal could be either a trade or a buyout.

    Yeah this season is over.
