Tucker Signs With Suns

The terms haven't been disclosed. But the N-B-A rookie scale guarantees the former Badger will make 776-thousand dollars in his rookie season and nearly 835-thousand dollars in his second year.

The contract also has a team option for two more years.

The 6-foot-6 forward was the Big Ten Player of the Year last season for Wisconsin. He was the 29th overall pick of the June 28th draft.

He's on Phoenix's summer league team that will play five games in Las Vegas starting Monday night against Cleveland.

Also on the Suns' summer roster is second-round draft pick D-J Strawberry. The guard out of Maryland hasn't signed a contract yet.
