With reports circulating about P.J. Tucker’s unhappiness with his contract situation and teams showing interest in his services, the Houston Rockets’ veteran shooter could be on the move soon.

There is a lot of chatter surrounding the Houston Rockets‘ roster right now, considering the futures of James Harden and Russell Westbrook are up in the air. But for the sake of this writing, the mindset is building around those two superstars.

Several teams have reported interest in P.J. Tucker‘s services, which should come as no surprise, as Tucker is one of the best 3-and-D players in the league. Tucker will provide value for franchises that will be looking to next season with championship aspirations and believe that he can contribute right away.

Coming off a season where he played significant minutes at center, teams could be willing to pursue Tucker deeper due to his ability to fill different positions on the court. His only disadvantage is his age, as he’s currently 35-years-old, which is why win-now teams are the primary candidates.

With Tucker reportedly having value around the league, here are several potential trades for the Rockets center.
