Tucker's contract was only partially guaranteed for $1.5 million if the Suns had waived him prior to June 30, but with the salary cap skyrocketing this offseason, the forward's $5.3 million contract is still a relative pittance for the team. The 31-year-old has been a key rotation piece with the Suns for four seasons, but since he focuses most of his attention on the defensive end, he rarely produces helpful fantasy lines. He averaged just 8.0 points, 6.2 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.3 steals in 31.0 minutes per game in 2015-16, and could see his court time wane during the upcoming campaign with Jared Dudley signing with the Suns in free agency and T.J. Warren returning from a fractured foot.
P.J. Tucker managed 14 points (5-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds, three assists and a steal over 30 minutes in Wednesday's 114-105 season-ending victory over the Clippers.
Tucker finished the season with six double-digit scoring efforts in the last eight games, and with double-digit boards in four of those contests. The five-year veteran provided some surprising offensive contributions at times this season, but also turned in multiple scoreless efforts. His work on the glass remained solid however, as managed to play in at least 80 contests for the second time in the last three seasons. He finishes his fourth season in Phoenix with averages of 8.0 points, 6.2 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.2 blocks across 31.0 minutes, while starting 80 of 82 games.
P.J. Tucker posted 24 points (9-17 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-5 FT), 12 rebounds, five assists and a steal over 37 minutes in Thursday's 124-115 victory over the Rockets.
The veteran forward led the way among the starters against a Rockets defense that's struggled versus opposing threes all season. It ws Tucker's second double-double in the last four games, and third in the last four with double-digit shot attempts. While he can sometimes be the ultimate up-and-down player with respect to his scoring, Tucker has flashed a similar ceiling to Thursday's on multiple occasions this season.
P.J. Tucker went for 18 points (7-15 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists and a steal over 36 minutes in Friday's 106-99 loss to the Wizards.
Tucker got the best of one of the more vulnerable small forward defenses in the league, and managed his second straight double-double in the process. The five-year veteran shot well for the second consecutive contest while draining his first pair of three-pointers since Mar. 21 versus the Grizzlies, breaking a five game streak of coming up empty from beyond the arc. While his scoring remains untrustworthy, Tucker continues to play consistently well on the glass, and is averaging 9.5 rebounds over his last six contests.
P.J. Tucker scored 20 points (7-14 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 6-6 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, seven assists, and three steals in 39 minutes during the Phoenix Suns ' 105-94 loss to the Bucks on Wednesday.
Tucker responded well following Monday's six-point, six-rebound dud in which he committed five fouls and was limited to only 28 minutes to post arguably his best game of the season on Wednesday. Tucker is an inconsistent scorer, but his hard work and hustling combined with plentiful minutes typically nets him decent stats in most categories. His role as the starting small forward seems safe going forward, and this was the second time in March that Tucker mustered up at least 20 points, 10 rebounds, five assists, and two steals in a single contest.
