The 2019 NBA Summer League is in full swing in Las Vegas, Nev., with five VFLs in action.

Take a look at how these former Vols are performing in the Association. Updates will be posted throughout the summer on UTSports.com.

Kyle Alexander | Miami Heat
Undrafted rookie Kyle Alexander played a key role in the Miami Heat’s three victories at the 2019 California Classic. In their game-two win over Sacramento (89-88) on July 2, Alexander was good for six points on 60 percent shooting from the field. He also hauled in six rebounds. Against Golden State the following night, Alexander was given his first start of the summer, again grabbing six rebounds, this time a team-high, in 21 minutes of action in a 73-65 victory.

In Miami’s two wins in Las Vegas, Alexander has been featured in both games, playing 18 total minutes, scoring eight points, grabbing three rebounds, while adding a steal and a block.

Jordan Bone | Detroit Pistons
The formalities of his draft-day trade didn’t finalize until late Saturday night, so second-round pick Jordan Bone has not been active in the Detroit Pistons’ first two games of the 2019 Summer League. With his status as a Piston now official, Bone is likely to be active for Detroit’s matchup with the Indiana Pacers Monday at 5 p.m. ET on ESPNU.

Admiral Schofield | Washington Wizards
Second-round pick Admiral Schofield put in 23 minutes of work off the bench in Washington’s 84-79 win over the New Orleans Pelicans Saturday night. Schofield recorded nine points, while bringing down five rebounds and dishing off an assist.

Jarnell Stokes | Portland Trail Blazers
2014 second-round draft pick Jarnell Stokes is playing with the Portland Trail Blazers summer league squad. In Portland’s first two matchups in Vegas, Stokes has earned two starts, playing 38 minutes, tallying 11 points, nine rebounds, four assists, two blocks and a steal.

Grant Williams | Boston Celtics
In Boston’s 96-82 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers Saturday night, Grant Williams tallied 12 points while shooting 50 percent from the field (4-8) and from the 3-point range (2-4). He added six rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks to his ledger, in 19 minutes of action.
