Bucks land PJ Tucker from Rockets for playoff push

MILWAUKEE (AP) — P.J. Tucker says a move to the championship-contending Milwaukee Bucks offers the 35-year-old veteran a breath of fresh air and a chance to turn around a frustrating season.

Tucker practiced with his new team Friday after the Bucks officially announced they had acquired the 6-foot-5 forward along with guard Rodions Kurucs from the Houston Rockets.

The Bucks sent guard D.J. Augustin plus forward D.J. Wilson to Houston.

The Bucks also gave up their 2021 and 2023 first-round picks and got back their own 2022 first-round pick and the Rockets' 2021 second-round selection.
