Former Badger Alando Tucker will have to earn a spot on Timberwolves' roster - TwinCities.com
Tucker, Phoenix's first-round draft pick in 2007 from the University of Wisconsin, no longer figured in the Suns' plans this season, and Wolves coach Kurt Rambis was unsure when Tucker would play. But Rambis used Tucker's arrival to send a message to Wolves players, particularly the shooting guards, before Minnesota's 107-103 loss to Utah at Target Center.

"The fact is, when he gets home, you don’t see the losses affect him — honestly," said Chris Lopez, his brother, mentor, and housemate. "It’s not like he’s a kettle that’s about to blow. On the court, sometimes the frustration is evident. But it’s not a problem. He stays even-keeled. And I know there isn’t any repressed anger about it."
