    I don't care what Tucker wants or thinks he deserves. I'll send his ass to Cleveland for a 2nd round pick.

    OP hasn't heard that you're a FAKE FAN if you want to see a traded player do well on his new team.

    I love Tucker but I love the Rockets more. Get the best package. I loathe LA and LeBron-bon but if they offer the best deal fine trade him to Fakernation. More likely he goes to Nuggets, Philly or Heat.

    Agree. Trade him. I'm a lifelong Rockets fan, a 99'er, and therefore I am trapped in the sadness that is the Rockets franchise under Tilman. PJ (even though he's a Longhorn) should not have to suffer with me. He deserves better. Be free. Let him fly. Freebirds. Lulz.

    Not sure why so many want to treat Tucker as if his jersey should be retired. I mean he’s been a nice player for a few years for a good team but come on.

    Lakers have nothing of worth they are willing to part with to trade for Tucker.

    Tucker is an extremely important trade piece because if we're trying to get Herro from Miami, throwing in Tucker as well might seal the deal since Miami is in desperate need of a PF who can defend and shoot.

    You don't ever put the player before the team.

    Tucker's combination of high minutes and close to zero's across the entire stat line every single game just make you wonder what our coaches are thinking. The opposing teams can completely and utterly ignore Tucker on the offensive end at this point. He should be a situational rotation guy at this point.

    The only reason I can think of is we don't really have a PF on the roster. Cousins and the now injured Woods are listed as C's. I guess temporarily we could put Kurocs out there as a PF (he is 6'9) and our 2nd tallest player.

    I'd rather have you on the team than Kuzma.

    The Rockets are contenders, why would they want to make their competition better?

    Horton Tucker is the only Laker I would trade for.

    If he is available the Rockets should get him. Get as much Talent as possible.

    No kidding. Why on earth would we want to help the Lakers, the defending champions? A team who has also been a rival for decades that would love for us to gift them a player that I think any contending team would want on their roster. More to the point, what do they have to give us that would make doing so worthwhile? Unless we could absolutely bend them over in a deal for Tucker, again, why help them?

    Just to be clear, I’m not opposed to trading PJ. Trade him to a contending team in the East, in my opinion. We’d very likely get more for him anyway than we would from LA.

    we really should
    trade P.J. Tucker he deserves to have a chance to win a ring. There is not much he can do for this team anymore. He has done beyond what's reasonable.

    Heh there are those who think Tucker would help the Lakers... I sure hope the Lakers also hold that belief.
