Four Badgers in the 2012 NBA Summer League


Jordan Taylor isn’t the only former Badger star who will be looking to shine in the NBA Summer League this year. In all, 4 ex-Wisconsin players will be competing in the league in hopes of securing a spot on an NBA roster come next year. UWBadgers.com has the rundown on who the four guys are and where they’ll be playing.

I won’t keep you in suspense any longer. Besides Jordan Taylor, who will be suiting up for the Atlanta Hawks’ affiliate, there’s also Brian Butch (Bucks), Marcus Landry (Suns) and Kammron Taylor (Timberwolves). Maybe one of them will catch on like Greg Stiemsma did with Boston last year, and get a nice ride into the playoffs.

For those of you lucky enough to have NBA TV on your cable system, you’ll be able to catch all the summer league fun. So if you’re longing for a little Wisconsin Badger hoop action in the middle of summer? Well, it’s not exactly the same – not too many NBA teams running Bo’s swing offense – but at least you’ll get to see Brian Butch again. Never get enough of the Big Polar Bear.
