A quick look at how the five former Boilermakers currently playing in the NBA have fared this season:

After helping the Dallas Mavericks win their first-ever world championship in 2011, former Purdue star Brian Cardinal has played in 17 games for the Mavs this season. In an average of 9.4 minutes per game, Cardinal has averaged 1.2 points and 1.3 rebounds.

He saw 15 minutes of action in the Mavs' loss to Minnesota on Wednesday, finishing with three points and a pair of boards.

JaJuan Johnson has seen time in nine games for the Boston Celtics, most recently scoring four points in a win over Orlando on Monday. Johnson is shooting 50 percent from the floor and 75 percent from the line, while averaging 1.9 points and 0.7 rebounds per game.

In his return home to Indianapolis on Jan. 14, Johnson scored four points and snagged a pair of rebounds in three minutes of work.

Carl Landry, recently elected to the NJCAA Hall of Fame, has played in 18 games in his first full season with the New Orleans Hornets, making six starts. He ranks second in scoring among active Hornets with an average of 12.2 points per game, while also pulling down an average of 4.7 rebounds per outing.

Veteran forward Brad Miller is in his first full season with the Minnesota Timberwolves, but has yet to see action while recovering from a knee injury.

E'Twaun Moore has taken the court 12 times for the Boston Celtics, averaging 1.8 points and 1.1 assists in 8.7 minutes per game. One of his better games came in the C's recent blowout of Orlando, as he posted six points, three assists, a steal and a block in 19 minutes.
