Suns forward P.J. Tucker is a fascinating story. Drafted in 2006 by the Raptors, he was sent to the D-League and eventually released. He bounced around Europe for several years before landing with Phoenix. Now he's a starter for a team within range of the playoffs and is their tough, emotional leader.

Coach Jeff Hornacek told me earlier this season that when the Suns are down at halftime, it's Tucker who lights a fire under the team. Tucker is set to be a restricted free agent this summer and with his skillset and toughness, he's going to get offers. He told the Arizona Republic this week he wants to return to Phoenix, however.
