Hayes is a combo-guard with good size. He has some of the step-back ability off the dribble that good NBA players have. He effortlessly makes one-hand zip passes with his strong hand. Left handed. Although not more than an average (by NBA standards) runner and jumper, Hayes is a "plus defender". His team was 1.7 points per 100 possessions better defensively with him on the floor. Hayes averaged 12.8 points, 6.2 assists and 1.5 steals per game in ten Euro Cup contests in 2019-20. He connected on 39% of his 3-pt attempts, and was 20-22 at the free throw line (92%). Hayes was born in Florida but due to his father's pro-career, Killian grew up in France. He was MVP of the FIBA U16 European Championship in 2017. He strikes us as a mild mannered kid. ...We expect Hayes to be among the first ten selections in the Draft.
Good advice: in 2016, the 4th pick was Dragan Bender. We advised, "draft Kris Dunn."
