Former Wisconsin Badgers center Ethan Happ finished up playing in front of scouts at the NBA G League Elite camp on Tuesday. By all accounts, Happ helped his draft stock tremendously with multiple draftniks commenting on his skills. For a player like Happ, who has one MAJOR concern about his game, showing all of the positive things he can do on the court in front of NBA and G League decision makers is of the utmost importance.

If you take a look at the box scores below you’ll notice that Happ was his usual stat-stuffing self in the first game. He had a game high five assists and four steals to go along with five points, six boards and a blocked shot.

He shot a dismal 1-for-7 from the field in the second game but that one shot was a shocker. ETHAN HAPP MADE A THREE POINTER IN A GAME THAT COUNTED (not for, like, anyone’s record but for his professional development)!!!!!!! He also made his only free throw attempt and led all players with four assists and three blocked shots.

Despite all of this, Happ was not selected to stay in Chicago for the NBA Draft Combine. While that is undoubtedly a major bummer for him, he will likely get a long look from the G League—and if he keeps filling up stat sheets, eventually an NBA team may even want him to suit up for them.
