All signs are pointing toward PJ Tucker replacing Matisse Thybulle in the Sixers starting lineup this season.
But is there a fit between Tucker and Tobias Harris?
Both play a hybrid role but are most comfortable operating as a stretch forward.
Harris has downplayed the importance of this saying that the small forward and power forward positions are nearly identical in Doc Rivers’ system.
Doc Rivers says PJ Tucker is ‘probably more three than four’
“We ran some four today with Paul Reed at the four and Joel at the five. Then, we ran some today with Tobias at the four and a small guy at the three. So, we moved that around a lot today.”
