    Mason Jones and Kenny Wooten are the official 2 ways.

    Exhibit 10's are 1 year deals that can convert into 2 way contract, e.g. Jerian Grant, Sterling Brown.

    Exhibit 9 contracts are NG (Non-Guaranteed) contracts that are likely Viper protected contracts, e.g. Brodric Thomas, Trevelin Queen even Boogie Cousins.

    I agree.

    Never would have considered trading him until @ch44 said he was on the block.

    People here are hard on Tucker , I get it the guy is old and a his offense reminds us of Shane battier just wait in the corner And pray he doesn’t try and dribble ....but the guy is the only one currently on our roster that can put his chest on LeBron.

    Does trading Harden's buddy, Tucker, make him less inclined to stay? Is it a factor at all?

    If gordon can accept his 6th man role he might excell again.

    If Tucker is gone I want him replaced with another vocal leader for the defense. 2017 we had paul ariza and tucker. Now we have just tucker. If we let go of tucker we better getting someone like Draymond.

    6'5 David Nwaba 7'0 wingspan and +/-7.3. DRtg is 94 when with Nets, better than Tucker.

    Nwaba is our next tucker - hopefully we can trade ego tucker and a pick at the deadline for someone good . Most likely will trade to get us below the cap . Lux tax savings

    I think Cousins called this report a lie in his November 12th tweet saying "cap"

    can't replace pj... i don't care what his age is. i am with u guys on that nwaba is a great individual defensive player, but he is nowhere near the level of pj in terms of communicating on defense. anyone who balls knows that talking on defense is basically half of the battle.. but you'd be surprised how little most players actually talk on that end, even nba players.

    if rockets want to compete and also keep harden happy... gotta keep pj tucker on the team at all costs.

    The LTS culture in this organization is contagious and goes viral among the fans.

    But he is the only major salary that you can trade with picks for players with size to improve the team. If he was moved in a pure salary dump trade, it officially kills all of our theoretical possibility to get better in the next few years, and would be the worst LTS move we've ever seen in the history of the organization and possibly the history of the NBA. It's outrageous even for Tilman's standard. It doesn't make sense if we try to blow up and rebuild either, because in that case you want to take salary to get assets, rather than dump salary and give aways assets.

    Tuck has tons of more experience, playing in other countries as well before playing in the NBA.

    Dude has seen almost the entire basketball world.

    Sterling Brown - This is Us - is an underrated guy.

    He started some games for the Bucks like a temporary starter plug.

    He isn't a scorer, so off the bench his abilities are somewhat limited other than hustle plays.

    If PJ is ever out.
