Alando Tucker's coming home

We haven't talked much about Tucker this season as he's been up and down to the Suns NBADL affiliate the Albuquerque Thunderbirds.

Alando is now coming back to Phoenix for good.

He performed very well for the T-birds:

In his third and final stint with the Thunderbirds after being assigned on March 14, Tucker averaged 28.9 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 37.4 minutes in 10 games.

Tucker shot 57.7 percent from the field, including 44.2 percent from three-point range, in his most recent stretch with Albuquerque, helping to lead the team to a 6-4 record. In 21 total games (19 starts) in Albuquerque this season, the Wisconsin product owns averages of 27.7 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.6 assists.

I don't expect to see much of him as a Sun this year but it looks like he's made a lot of progress in becoming a perimeter player. We will talk more about AT this summer as we look at what next year's team might look like.
