PJ Tucker Definitely Doesn't Want Kevin Durant to Leave the Warriors in Free Agency

There are people all across the basketball world who desperately want to see Kevin Durant leave Golden State this summer.

They believe that the Warriors have ruined competitive balance in the NBA and that the Warriors are bad for the sport overall.

PJ Tucker is not one of those people.

"Kevin Durant made a decision to leave OKC to go play with Golden State. He felt like that suited him and what he wanted to do. At the end of the day, beat em!" Tucker told Sirius XM NBA Radio on Monday. "That's how I feel. I don't want them to change anything.

"I want them all to stay together and let's line it up again and let's do it again. I definitely don't want him to leave. He's a good friend of mine and they're playing great, he's playing unbelievable basketball right now."

We need more people like Tucker.

The situation for the 33-year old is interesting, because if LeBron James decides to join the Rockets, Tucker may not play for Houston next season.

"I love Daryl Morey. He's gonna put the best team out there he can, and try to make the best moves he can for our team," Tucker said. "Everybody has confidence in him to do that. Hopefully I'm here. Would love to be here, but it's a business.

"And if you got a chance to get maybe the best player in the game on your team, people are gonna do what they gotta do to try to make that happen."

Tucker is under contract for three more years, with a partial guarantee in 2020-21.
