Former University of Wisconsin standout Nigel Hayes is getting another chance in the NBA.

The Toronto Raptors signed Hayes to a 10-day contract, an NBA source confirmed. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski originally broke the news that Hayes was signing with the Raptors.

Hayes, who has been playing this season with the Westchester Knicks of the G-League, spent time with the Los Angeles Lakers on a 10-day contract earlier this season. He appeared in two games for the Lakers, averaging 1.5 points and 5.5 minutes.
