The Philadelphia 76ers and free agent forward P.J. Tucker have agreed to terms on a three-year contract, per Shams Charania. Tucker had been being pursued by multiple contending teams after spending last season with the Miami Heat. Tucker is 38 years old and this contract is pretty healthy for someone his age.
