If Pat Riley’s Heat can find a way now to re-sign Tucker, they will definitely surprise some people.Source: Marc Stein @ marcstein.substack.com What’s the buzz on Twitter?

The financials do get a bit complicated when you consider the Sixers’ cap situation and the fact that Tucker is reportedly opting out of his $7.35 million player option with the Heat for the 2022-23 season. The notion that the Sixers could move Thybulle and/or Green just to create space to sign Tucker is not the case, per a source. The team still views Thybulle as a player with value, and, as Kyle Neubeck of The PhillyVoice has reported previously, they will not be looking to give away the two-time All-Defensive Team player. -via LibertyBallers.com / June 23, 2022 The Sixers’ forthcoming strong pursuit of P.J. Tucker, league sources say, has the strong backing of star center Joel Embiid. I reported Wednesday that Philadelphia is regarded as the league’s clear favorite to sign Tucker if the 37-year-old is indeed leaving Miami this summer after declining his $7.4 million player option with the Heat for next season to opt for free agency. -via marcstein.substack.com / June 23, 2022 Free Agency, Pat Riley, Main Rumors Main Rumors, Free Agency, Pat Riley, PJ Tucker, Miami Heat, Philadelphia 76ers 145 shares share tweet pin sms send email To leave a comment, you will need to Sign in or create an account Login if you already have an account.
