The Houston Rockets attempted to re-sign Nene to a four-year deal before talks broke off between the two sides. Instead of keeping Nene, the team has signed free agent small forward P.J. Tucker to a four-year agreement.

The agreement is worth $32 million.

Tucker met with the Toronto Raptors when free agency started early Saturday morning. It was thought that the team would keep him until this agreement was announced.

The free agent also had a meeting scheduled with the Sacramento Kings on Sunday. That meeting is obviously canceled now.

Tucker was convinced to sign with the Rockets after talking to members of the team, including superstar James Harden. His new teammates believe that he could thrive in head coach Mike D’Antoni’s system.

The small forward was acquired by the Raptors in a trade with the Phoenix Suns at the trade deadline. In 81 games this season, he averaged 6.7 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.4 steals.

He has been in the NBA for six seasons with the Suns and the Raptors.
