As the Philadelphia 76ers prepare for the upcoming 2022-2023 season, there is a lot of hype and buzz surrounding the team. The 66ers got to work fairly quickly in the off-season and were able to solve most of the problems in their lineup.

One of these issues was resolved with the acquisition of PJ Tucker as a free agent. Tucker is a star in his role as he offers toughness at both ends of the floor and is capable of knocking down corner triples at high speed, which is a must when playing alongside James Harden.

As the new season kicks off, CBS Sports is rating Top 22 power forwards in the league, and Tucker finished 17th at position:

Tucker’s main traits as a power forward are his versatility and resilience. He can defend both forward positions and sometimes act as the center of the smallball as well. Besides, it will lie on the floor. He finished in the top 20 in total games played five times in his career and led the league in that category three times. He also finished in the top ten in total minutes played twice. The opportunity to be available to your team is very valuable, especially in today’s NBA.
