PJ Tucker, Phoenix Suns agree to three-year, $16.5 million deal


There were previously rumors that the Phoenix Suns could be working on a sign-and-trade deal that would involve 29-year-old forward PJ Tucker. However, it now seems that the team is ready to keep one of their key free agents.

According to Paul Coro of Arizona Sports, Tucker and the Suns have agreed to a three-year deal worth $16.5 million.

Last year, Tucker averaged a career-high 9.4 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.4 steals in 30.7 minutes.

He will look to build off of those numbers this season and continue to help the Suns defense with his nice new deal.

Tucker has been in and out of the NBA throughout his professional career, but he has found a home in Phoenix since signing with the Suns back in 2012.
