According to NBA insider Matt Moore of The Action Network, the Denver Nuggets, Philadelphia 76ers and Phoenix Suns are interested in Los Angeles Clippers forward PJ Tucker.

Tucker is no longer in the Clippers’ rotation.

“The P.J. Tucker situation with the Clippers, where the veteran is out of the rotation, is sticky,” Moore wrote. “He would prefer a new home where he can contribute, but the only teams interested are direct competitors for the NBA title. The Clippers don’t want to play him, but they don’t want to play against him in a big game environment, either. The Nuggets, 76ers and Suns are among the interested teams, but likely only if he’s bought out.”
