Report: Utah Jazz interested in Phoenix Suns’ swingman P.J. Tucker

Where there’s smoke there’s Phoenix.

NBA: Utah Jazz at Phoenix Suns Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

The Utah Jazz are once again being linked to the Phoenix Suns. This time to veteran swingman P.J. Tucker. P.J. Tucker is averaging 7.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 1.3 assists for the 2016-2017 season in 28 minutes per game. Michael Scotto has the report:

I’m not sure how P.J. Tucker would fit in Utah if they hold onto Derrick Favors. Utah is definitely looking to load up for the playoffs. Utah’s injury history seems to be testing its very deep roster and it looks like Dennis Lindsey is looking for some extra insurance.
