Houston sent Tucker and Latvian forward Rodions Kurucs to the Bucks for guard D.J. Augustin, big man D.J. Wilson and Milwaukee’s 2023 first-round NBA Draft pick.
Milwaukee also got back its 2022 first-round NBA Draft pick, which the Rockets had obtained from Cleveland in a four-team deal earlier this season.
“P.J. Tucker checks all the boxes,” Bucks general manager Jon Horst said in a statement. “He’s a great teammate who brings a veteran presence with playoff experience.”
