Trades happen and there usually isn’t a great time for the execs to inform players they have been moved. There are some unique and interesting takes on how people learned they would be playing for a different team in a different city. Here are some of them:
PJ Tucker (Suns to RAPTORS, 2017)
PJ Tucker thought he was safe in Phoenix. The trade deadline had passed – or so he thought — so he went into the shower. Pretty soon his teammates, actually former teammates, went in there and got him out to tell him he had been dealt to Toronto in 2017. He called it “kind of crazy,” noting Jared Dudley was the one who initially broke the news.
