Jerry Zgoda missed the entire Kevin Garnett era, but he's back covering the Timberwolves after working the beat for their first four seasons two decades ago. In between, he covered a bit of everything: Gopher men's and women's basketball and NCAA athletics, golf, outdoor recreation, sports media and a little Vikings and Twins.

Wolves get ex-Badger from Suns

OK, here's the done deal: The Wolves have traded Jason Hart's non-guaranteed contract to Phoenix for former Badger Alando Tucker, a second-round pick next summer and cash.

The team had been in talks with New Orleans to acquire guard Devin Brown for Hart, but those talks broke down earlier in the day.

So they land Tucker, the pick and cash. Here's a look at some of the particulars on Tucker: 

He's 25 years old (he'll turn 26 on Feb. 11).

He's a 6-6 small forward out of Wisconsin (birthplace, Lockport, Ill.)

Career numbers: He's appeared in 47 games, averaging about 8.5 minutes per appearance. He has averaged 4.3 points and 1.0 rebound per game.

More to come.
