1. P.J. Tucker

P.J. Tucker was once viewed as a major staple of the Rockets franchise. He was never afraid to do the dirty work and was the ultimate team player.

Hell, the man once played in a pivotal Game 7 just hours after getting a triple root canal. No wonder he was unafraid of playing the full time center role in 2019-20 despite standing just 6-foot-6.

But that was then and this is now. Tucker has since donned four different uniforms, as he was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks in 2020-21 and joined the Miami Heat in the offseason of that year, followed by joining the Philadelphia 76ers in free agency in 2022 and gus eventual trade to the LA Clippers earlier this season.

Tucker has registered nine consecutive zero-point performances for the Clippers of late. Furthermore, Tucker has had three DNPs for Clippers coach Ty Lue and has provided further proof that Father Time never loses, as the 38-year-old easily looks his age.

Since being dealt to LA, Tucker has averaged 2.9 points, 6 rebounds and 1.7 assists per 36, while shooting 28.6 percent from the floor, 27.3 percent from long-range, and 45.7 percent true shooting. The Sneaker King once known for his proficiency as a corner 3-point shooter is just shooting 31 percent from three in the corner on the year- 25 percent from the left corner (0.7 attempts) and 37.5 percent from the right corner (0.6 attempts).
