Brian Lee Cardinal (born May 2 1977 in Tolono, Illinois) is an American professional basketball player who currently plays for the Minnesota Timberwolves of the National Basketball Association.

College career

After graduating from Unity High School in Tolono, Illinois, Cardinal attended Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana (1996-2000) and played under coach Gene Keady. Nicknamed "The Janitor", Cardinal helped lead the Boilermakers to an Elite Eight appearance in 2000. He currently holds the school's career steals record at 259. He is one of three former Purdue players in the NBA along with Brad Miller and Carl Landry.

Professional career

Cardinal was selected in the second round by the Detroit Pistons in the 2000 NBA Draft, with little impact (23 games in two seasons). On September 11, 2002, he was traded to the Washington Wizards with Jerry Stackhouse and Ratko Varda, for Richard Hamilton, Hubert Davis and Bobby Simmons, but was waived shortly after. After that, he spent the rest of the season playing in the Spanish league.

In 2003-04, after a late preseason signing with the Golden State Warriors, Cardinal had a breakthrough season, averaging 10 points and 4 rebounds per game in 76 games resulting in him receiving votes in the Most Improved Player competition.

In 2004, Cardinal signed as a free agent with the Memphis Grizzlies, where he posted similar numbers from the previous season. His impact and playing time would gradually diminish through 2005-08.

In 2008, Cardinal was traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves as part of an eight-player deal.
