Dallas Mavericks trade target that fits perfectly with Luka Doncic: 3. P.J. Tucker

Tucker is in the final year of his contract making just under $8 million. He requested a contract extension or trade in the offseason but has received neither. The veteran forward is expected to be traded or bought out to find his way to a contender for the 2021 playoffs.

The 35-year-old brings defense, versatility, and floor spacer. The 6’5 Tucker is not afraid to mix it up with big men. He has plenty of experience playing the four or small ball five. Tucker is one of the best corner 3-point shooters in the league. He will play his role and make an impact on the game.

The Mavericks lacked toughness and defense last season. Tucker is the perfect addition to solve those woes. The undersized forward will back down from no player. That and his on-court talent makes Tucker a fantastic fit next to Luka Doncic in Dallas.

Can the Dallas Mavericks pry P.J. Tucker away from the rival Houston Rockets? They would prefer to trade him out of the division, but Houston is facing a rebuild. If the Mavs make the strongest offer, the Rockets should not think twice about accepting.
