RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2016-17

For the fourth straight season, Tucker was the Sunsí top defensive stopper on the perimeter and was one of the few players on the roster who stayed healthy, suiting up in all 82 games for the first time in his career. The 31-year-old is valued for his ability to force opponents to take tough shots and commit turnovers, attributes that arenít insignificant given the Sunsí team-wide struggles with guarding the three-point line a season ago. Tuckerís 6.2 rebounds per game were also an impressive figure for a player listed at 6-foot-6, but beyond that, he doesnít bring much to the table. As a complementary player, Tucker rarely makes much of an impact on the offensive end, which was reflected in his averages of 8.0 points, 2.2 assists and 0.8 three-pointers in 31.0 minutes per game. He wasnít particularly efficient with his opportunities either, shooting 41.1 percent from the floor and 33 percent from the three-point line. It didnít help matters that Tucker played much of the second half without the injured Eric Bledsoe or Brandon Knight to help set him up, but the return of both guards to full health wonít necessarily translate to better offensive production for Tucker. Prior to suffering a season-ending broken foot in late January, T.J. Warren was beginning to encroach on Tuckerís playing time, and the third-year forward could very well overtake Tucker for starting duties to begin the upcoming campaign. Tucker was sidelined in mid-September following back surgery and was ruled out for six-to-eight weeks, likely keeping him off the court when the season begins in late October.

2015-16

Tucker has found new life in Phoenix after five years away from the NBA following his rookie season with the Raptors back in 2006. He's played at least 78 games in each of the last three seasons and has established himself as an integral part of the Suns' rotation, starting a total of 144 games since the start of the 2013-14 campaign. Morris' numbers last season were nearly identical to his 2013-14 production, as he put up 9.1 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.6 assists, and 1.4 steals per game in 31 minutes. While his field goal percentage took a slight leap from 43 to 44 percent, he was less efficient from the outside, converting only 35 percent of his attempts after shooting the three at a 39-percent clip two seasons ago. The Suns' roster is rather thin at the small forward spot, and Tucker currently projects as the starter. However, second-year swingman T.J. Warren showed promise last season and should step into a larger role, while rookie Devin Booker could play the three in certain situations. Regardless, even if Tucker doesn't reach the 30-minute-per-game plateau for the third straight year, his playing time doesn't figure to see a major regression.

2014-15

Tucker is entering his fourth season in the NBA and his third season with the Suns. He emerged as a starter for the upstart Suns last season and averaged a career-high 9.4 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.7 assists, and 1.4 steals in 31 minutes per game while shooting 43 percent on 7.6 shots from the field, 39 percent on 2.4 shots from three, and 78 percent on 2.5 shots from the free-throw line. As an enforcer for the Suns, Tucker is known mostly for his defense and will contribute in fantasy accordingly. He rebounds very well for his size (6.5 boards per game in 2013-14) and chipped in 1.4 steals per game last season. However, outside of those categories, Tucker is a low-end option for fantasy purposes. Even with over 30 minutes per game last season, he couldn't muster a double-digit point average and now finds himself suspended for the first three games of the season following a "super extreme" DUI arrest.

2013-14

Tucker has carved out a niche as a solid tweener who does a little of just about everything. His work ethic allows him to rebound well for a player his size and guard larger players. Mainly, the veteran's expectations will be to infect the rest of the young roster with his approach.
