Update: Cody Martin was one of 10 players from the G League Elite Camp to get a full invitation to the NBA Combine. Caleb Martin and Jordan Caroline will have to rely on their G League Elite Camp showing as well as individual team workouts. Cody Martin averaged 7.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.5 steals, 2.5 assists and 1.0 block per game during two G League Elite Camp scrimmages. He shot 7-of-17 from the field (41.2 percent). The players were selected based on a survey of NBA executives.

Nevada Wolf Pack alums Caleb Martin, Cody Martin and Jordan Caroline fared better on the second day of the two-day G League Elite Camp in Chicago.

The three players, who helped elevate the program during their tenures in Northern Nevada, largely had rough first days at the camp. But that wasn't the case on day two. Here's a look at their stats in both scrimmages.

Day 1 scrimmages

* Cody Martin, 9 points (4-of-11, 0-of-3 3s, 1-of-2 FTs), 5 rebounds, 3 steals, 2 assists

* Caleb Martin, 5 points (2-of-9, 0-of-4 3s, 1-of-2 FTs), 6 rebounds, 2 steals

* Jordan Caroline, 8 points (3-of-7, 1-of-3 3s, 1-of-3 FTs), 1 rebound

Day 2 scrimmages

* Cody Martin, 6 points, (3-of-6, 0-of-1 3s, 0-of-1 FTs), 3 rebounds, 3 assists, 4 steals, 2 blocks, 2 turnovers

* Caleb Martin, 16 points (4-of-11, 2-of-7 3s, 6-of-8 FTs), 5 rebounds

* Jordan Caroline, 19 points (7-of-10, 1-of-3 3s, 4-of-6 FTs), 5 rebounds, 3 turnovers

In ESPN's latest top-100 prospect list, only Cody Martin (at No. 98) made the list. Caroline came in at No. 91 in The Athletic's top-100 board. None of the trio are projected as draft picks right now, so a strong showing in the combine setting and in individual team workouts are important for them to raise their stock. The two-day, 60-pick draft will be held June 20.

Here are some quick interviews with each of the Wolf Pack players at the G League Elite Camp.

Here are a couple of highlights from the action.

A select group of players from the G League Elite Camp will be invited to the NBA Combine, which both Martin twins participated in last season. Getting invited to the combine is usually a key indicator for being drafted. Per research by Syracuse.com, an average of 43 of the NBA’s 60 draft picks participated in the NBA combine over the last five years. Last year, that number was 49. Since 2014, 11 college players who did not secure combine invitations were drafted. That's just 2.2 per draft.

Nevada hasn't had a player selected in the NBA draft since 2010 when Luke Babbitt went in the first round and Armon Johnson in the second round, both ending up with the Portland Trail Blazers.
