Philadelphia 76ers: P.J. Tucker’s asking price was just too high



Article Summary:

Tucker’s contract became the property of the Milwaukee Bucks – who were mere minutes away from playing the Philadelphia 76ers- and multiple more picks and players exchanged hands in the process.

A big reason why Harden currently dons a black, white, and occasionally blue jersey instead of good old American red, white, and blue is because Daryl Morey was unwilling to package away his team’s entire future picks, and second best player, and multiple young players to bet it all on one player.

Would the Freak play out the 2020-21 season on a lame-duck contract only to sign elsewhere a la Kareem? Or would he pull a Jimmy Butler and force his way out of Milwaukee one way or another?

Well, as it turns out, the Bucks would do everything in his power to keep Antetokounmpo happy, even if it meant mortgaging their future to get a deal done.

Even if Tilman Fertitta and company were willing to make a deal with Morey, which I’m not sure is in the cards, would the Sixers have been willing to trade an unprotected first, two players, and a second-for-first round pick swap in 2021 for a player on an expiring contract that many feel is washed?

No, I don’t think they would.
