Former Wisconsin forward Nigel Hayes was one of 67 players officially invited to the NBA Draft Combine, which takes place next Thursday and Friday in Chicago. Left off the list of 59 originally sent out by the NBA, Hayes was added along with seven other players as late additions.

During his sophomore season Hayes caught the attention of NBA scouts en route to an NCAA Tournament second-place finish. He was a consensus first-rounder after averaging 33 minutes, 12.4 points and hitting almost 50 percent of his field goal attempts.

Deciding to return to Wisconsin, Hayes looked less impressive in his junior and senior seasons. He is now widely projected to be a late second-round pick.

The full NBA combine invite list can be found below as well as the NBA’s press release.
