Earlier today it was reported by several sources (including the Minnesota Timberwolves) that Devin Brown had been acquired by the Wolves from New Orleans in exchange for Jason Hart.

Turns out that report was premature; Hart was traded by Minnesota, but instead he was sent to the Suns for Alando Tucker, a second-round draft pick and cash. Phoenix turned around and waived Hart.

A former All-American small forward at Wisconsin and first-round pick in ’07, Tucker has struggled to crack the Suns’ rotation when healthy. This year he’s averaging 3.9 points in just over six minutes a night.
