Phoenix Suns Signed PJ Tucker to a 2-Year Deal

PJ Tucker’s stellar play in the Summer League earned him a deal with the Phoenix Suns. Per the AP: “The Suns say the team’s front office and coaching staff were impressed with Tucker’s performance in the Las Vegas Summer League, leading to the signing. The 6-foot-6, 244-pound forward played the last five seasons internationally, with stops in Puerto Rico, Greece, Israel and Germany. Tucker was a second-round draft pick of the Toronto Raptors out of Texas in 2004, the 35th selection overall.”

    I liked Tucker’s game while he was in Texas and with the Raps. He’s a tweener, but has a good feel for the game and may be able to crack the Sun’s rotation.
