Count the Milwaukee Bucks among the teams interested in supposedly available Houston Rockets forward P.J. Tucker.
Per Kevin O’Connor of The Ringer, the Bucks have been interested in Tucker since at least November.
While the Bucks landed point guard Jrue Holiday before the season, they continue to look to surround star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo with more veteran help. Tucker is the type of veteran 3-and-D wing who would undoubtedly offer it.
“He is a stout defender who could thrive in small-ball lineups next to Giannis,” O’Connor wrote. “Tucker turns 36 in May and will be a free agent this offseason, but the trade possibilities are limited with an empty asset cupboard.”
At the moment, it seems as if guard Donte DiVincenzo is the Bucks’ most coveted tradable asset.
Tucker has been linked to several other teams, including the defending champion Los Angeles Lakers.
