Former Heat Forward P.J. Tucker Moves On To The Next Chapter

Former Miami Heat forward P.J. Tucker has been an intangible player at every one of his NBA stops. 

The Philadelphia 76ers expect nothing different once Tucker arrives at training camp.

The Sixers introduced Tucker as their new signee Wednesday. He is on a three-year, $33.2 million deal. 

"We’re excited to add his leadership, toughness, defensive versatility

and championship pedigree to our roster," Sixers team president Daryl Morey

"P.J. wants to deliver an NBA title to Philadelphia and his work ethic and mentality make him an impactful addition."

After leading the Heat past the Sixers in the second round of the postseason,

he will now attempt to help Philadelphia compete for a championship

 In his one season in Miami, Tucker helped the Heat make the conference finals

They fell one win shy of reaching the NBA Finals. 

"This team is good enough to compete head-to-head with anybody in the league

and I'm going to come in here and do whatever I can to help get us to that next level,"
