Hayes saw action in four NBA preseason games and scored a total of nine points, while Koenig appeared in just one game and registered no stats. This was Koenig’s second team, as he signed with the Bulls after the Bucks waived him following Summer League play.
Both Hayes and Koenig will go down as two of the most important Wisconsin players ever, but for now, their NBA prospects are trending down.
