P.J. Tucker Drawing Major Interest from Around the League

P.J. Tucker is currently a bit busy, trying to help the Milwaukee Bucks win an NBA Championship, but he’ll have a lot on his plate come this offseason as well.

According to Bleacher Report’s Jake Fischer, Tucker is drawing interest from several teams around the NBA this offseason.

In addition to his current team, franchises that Fischer has linked Tucker to include the Brooklyn Nets, Golden State Warriors, Denver Nuggets, Los Angeles Lakers and Utah Jazz, each team an NBA Finals contender when healthy.

Tucker will hit free agency following the end of the 2021 NBA Finals and, as a 36-year-old role player, it’s surprising for Tucker to have this much interest across the NBA on the surface. However, his locker room impact and notable defensive performances have allowed him to remain a hot commodity.

Acquired by Milwaukee prior to the trade deadline, Tucker has been instrumental in the Bucks playoff run, playing 29.5 minutes per game and starting 17 of the 21 contests.

The Bucks are currently tied 2-2 in the NBA Finals with the Phoenix Suns, with Game 5 taking place on Saturday night in Phoenix.
