Phoenix Suns Rumors: P.J. Tucker could be traded in sign-and-trade

The Phoenix Suns shocked a lot of people this past season when they went from being a sure-fire lottery team to a a squad that finished just a few games short of a postseason berth as they were fighting for the No. 8 seed up until the very end of the regular season.

But not everyone who helped get the team to the position they’re in will be back next year as tough decisions are having to be made by the front office. Restricted free agent P.J. Tucker is one of those players and there has been increasing talk about a possible sign-and-trade involving the Suns forward.

“Some teams have inquired about the possibility of a sign and trade for Suns restricted free agent swingman PJ Tucker, the source said,” according to Yahoo! Sports insider Marc J. Spears.

Bringing back Tucker is something the Suns have wanted to do but they have to start thinking about their future and where their money will be going. Eric Bledsoe is a restricted free agent this year and the contract of Goran Dragic will need to be addressed and discussed in the near future as well. This is without mentioning that the Suns have other young players they want to re-sign as well as trying to go out and sign a big free agent this offseason.

It’s an exciting time in Phoenix but the Suns got to this point by spending responsibly and that’s what makes talks of a sign-and-trade with P.J. Tucker make a whole lot of sense.

    Dragic is a Suns player for life! I believe in him and his loyalty. Suns management can’t should not , (hope not , cannot go backwards. . It’s only up and forward for my Phoenix Suns! This fan base has been patient and loyal since day one. I admit it was the worst thing watching Steve nash leave . Our organization learned that you need that true hero and the odds of actually upgrading from nash ash to dragic is the only way. He studied nash and is the spitting image of nash. Without dragic ,? Their is no PHX SUNS!
    If we trade him how will we get LBJ or melo? He is the key ! Suns championship # he is the reason free agents will want to come to phoenix. Bledsoe as well is a different beast. We absolutely need both and keep growing together! All we are missing is that one key piece. “SUPER STAR” .. so close to making it all the way to a championship. can’t give up now!!!
    Please Robert Sarver and McDonough see the future ignited. We will Rise from the Ashes!
    The Dragon/BLED is our FUTURE!!! #GOSUNS. Planet ORANGE FOR LIFE! !
