Default What happened to PJ Tucker?

What was the reason why he couldnt make it in the NBA?

I thought coming out of college all he needed was to gain maybe about 10 more lb's of muscle and he could've became a Barkley-type of player in the NBA.

If Roger Powell Jr. was going to have a hard time making the NBA, PJ Tucker was going to have an even harder time.

Exactly,he proved he was a good rebounder for his height in college and proved he could create his own shot in the post on anyone regardless of their height.

He also was a great defensive player as well.

Im still shocked no team thinks they could find a use for him in the NBA.

he's too undersized for the NBA.

he plays primarily in the post and simply can't rebound like he did in college.

I'm more upset that Jawad Williams, Jackie Manuel, Mike Gansey, and Darius Rice haven't gotten a shot in the NBA yet

I think he is still in the D-league. Not sure. From what I saw of him in Toronto he was a good rebounder for his size and was an alright finisher, thats just about it.

At the time, he got beat out for the athletic energy guy spot by Joey Graham. So, take that for what it is I suppose.
