Former Cyclones Marial Shayok and Lindell Wigginton have been invited to participate in the NBA G-League Elite Camp next week in Chicago, according to a press release.

They are two of 40 players invited to the inaugural edition of the event. Other notable players invited to the event include Iowa’s Tyler Cook, West Virginia’s Sagaba Konate, Auburn’s Bryce Brown, Nebraska’s James Palmer Jr. and Gonzaga’s Josh Perkins.

Shayok averaged a team-high 18.7 points per game in his only season on the court for the Cyclones. The former transfer from Virginia finished second for the Big 12 scoring title and was named first-team All-Big 12.

Wigginton, who could still potentially return to school although that currently seems unlikely, averaged 13.5 points per game as a sophomore on his way to being named the Big 12’s Sixth Man of the Year. This is his second time going through the NBA Draft evaluation process as he did the same thing last season.

The duo will be joined in Chicago by former teammate Talen Horton-Tucker, who was one of 60 players invited to the traditional NBA Combine.
