Sixers podcast: P.J. Tucker is a 76er | Kevin Durant rumors


This episode of the podcast welcomes Noah Levick from NBC Sports Philly to talk Sixers hoops. With so much going on with free agency, things got even more interesting when a certain NBA superstar made a trade request from one of the Sixers’ conference rivals. Before we get to that drama, we start the podcast off with the news of P.J. Tucker signing with the Sixers.

The Sixer Sense Podcast: Episode 200

According to Shams Charania, P.J. Tucker is finalizing a $33 million deal with Philadelphia for three years, fully guaranteed. We debate whether the deal was an overpay by the Sixers or if his addition matches the contract value based on what he brings to the team. We also identify specific reasons why he will be an asset when compared to Danny Green.

The podcast also analyzes the statistics of two other players that the Sixers signed. We take a look into Danuel House‘s numbers and the production of Trevelin Queen. How will these players fit into the offense? How does James Harden’s familiarity with House’s spot-up shooting game impact the Sixers?

Then, we pivot to the subject of potential deals between now and the regular season. Of course, we bring up the trade request made by Kevin Durant and how that affects the NBA landscape. We discuss how the Sixers could sign him and which other teams would likely have the trade capital to pull off a deal.

The last topic we discuss on the podcast revolves around the team that Daryl Morey has currently constructed. We debate whether or not the Sixers are a better team than they were this time last year. We also measure the Sixers compared to the other Eastern Conference teams in terms of stars and role players on current rosters.
