Badger finds his den

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Friday night that according to a source, Hayes will sign with the Sacramento Kings for the remainder of the 2017-18 season as well as the 2018-19 season.

Earlier this month, Hayes signed a 10-day contract with the Toronto Raptors, as well as another contract of that duration with the NBA Eastern Conference’s current No. 1 seed before being released by the organization on March 26.

One more season

“Back in the spring, in the days after the national championship game, (UW Director of Athletics) Barry Alvarez and I discussed the possibility of me retiring. I’ve always been told that is not a decision to make right after a season is completed. Barry thankfully encouraged me to take some time to think about it…

First Rounders

Kaminsky and Dekker became just the third and fourth UW players under Ryan to be selected in the first round of the NBA draft. As a result, they gave UW two first-round picks in the same season for the first time ever.

Kaminsky was taken No. 9 overall by the Charlotte Hornets, who finished 33-49 last season and failed to make the playoffs….Dekker was taken No. 18 by Houston, which finished 56-26 last season and lost to eventual champion Golden State in the Western Conference finals.

Via Frank Kaminsky No. 9 to Charlotte; Sam Dekker No. 18 to Houston @ JS Badgers Blog.

Paul Chryst’s debut as Wisconsin’s head coach can’t get much bigger. UW’s opener against Alabama, set for Sept. 5 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, will start at 7 p.m. and be televised by ABC. Via Badgers’ 2015 football opener set for prime time on ABC @ JS Badgers Blog.
