PJ Tucker is expected to join the Philadelphia 76ers once free agency opens on June 30. This is what Marc Stein of Substack reports, adding that the deal between the two sides will be for three years, worth $30M.
“If Pat Riley’s Heat can find a way now to re-sign Tucker, they will definitely surprise some people. It seems increasingly safe, then, to at least pencil in a Harden/Tucker reunion,” Stein reports.
