P.J. Tucker will decline his $7.35 million player option and join free agency after a good season with the Miami Heat.
According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Tucker will be courted by "many championship-contending teams."
Tucker averaged seven points, five rebounds, two assists, 0.8 steals, and 0.2 blocks per game last season. He had a field-goal percentage of 48 percent. In 70 of the 71 games he appeared in, he started.
During the Heat's postseason run to the Eastern Conference finals, he averaged seven points, five rebounds, one assist, 0.8 steals, and 0.3 blocks per game.
He aided Giannis Antetokoumpo and the Milwaukee Bucks in winning a championship in 2021. The Bucks, on the other hand, chose to re-sign Bobby Portis over Tucker.
Tucker is known for his defensive advantages, even though he isn't known for putting up big statistics.
