Wisconsin’s Nigel Hayes and Marquette’s Henry Ellenson will try to put their best foot forward for the pro scouts over the next several days. They’ll join about 70 other players who were invited to the NBA Draft Combine which opens today in Chicago.
Ellenson has already signed with an agent, which means he can’t change his mind and return to school.
Hayes did not sign with an agent, which means he’ll have ten days after the combine ends to decide if he wants to continue with his pro plays, or return to the Madison for his senior season with the Badgers.
Former Whitefish Bay Dominican standout Diamond Stone of Maryland is also at the combine, in advance of the June 23rd NBA Draft.
