PHOENIX (AP) -- Former Badger standout Alando Tucker says he can't wait to play with Steve Nash.

So far Tucker has been playing with Phoenix's summer-league team.

But he says he's looking forward to learning everything he can from the two-time NBA MVP.

He says is was excited when the Suns drafted him.

He says they called him around pick Number 20 to tell him it was a lock that they'd draft him if he was still around when it was their turn with pick 29.

Tucker says he was hoping no one would take him because he wanted to go to Phoenix.

He says he knows he has a lot of things to work on, but he thinks he has a bright future in Phoenix.
