Monday night's NBA Summer League schedule features three former Badgers taking the court. Alando Tucker (Phoenix), Marcus Landry (Sacramento) and Joe Krabbenhoft (Portland) are all slated to be in action tonight in Las Vegas. The fourth Wisconsin alum playing in the Summer League, Greg Stiemsma, will continue play on Tuesday night.

Here is an early update from Vegas.

Alando Tucker - Phoenix Suns: Tucker begins his third tour of the NBA Summer League with a game against Dallas today at 5 p.m. (CT). Last season, Tucker ranked fourth in the league with a 21.6 points per game scoring average. He shot 57 percent from the field while chipping in an average of 4.0 rebounds per game and 0.6 assists.

Marcus Landry - Sacramento Kings: Landry has put up impressive numbers in his first two NBA Summer League games this year. Coming off the bench in both contests, Landry has played an average of 25.0 minutes, posting averages of 11.0 ppg, 4.0 rpg, 0.5 apg, 1.5 steals and 0.5 blocks. His next game comes against the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday at 9:30 p.m. (CT).

Greg Stiemsma - Memphis Grizzlies: After playing professionally overseas last season, Stiemsma is back in the U.S. as a member of the Grizzles. Stiemsma did not appear in Memphis' first Summer League game, but the team returns to the court Tuesday vs. the New York Knicks at 5 p.m. (CT).

Joe Krabbenhoft - Portland Trailblazers: After an impressive three-day try-out in Portland, Krabbenhoft earned a spot on the Blazers Summer League squad for 2009. Krabbenhoft arrived in Las Vegas Sunday and will begin action Monday night vs. the Toronto Raptors at 7 p.m. (CT).
