Killian Hayes

Position: PG/SG                From: France                      Class/YOB: 2001

Height: 6’5                        Weight: 216                        Wingspan:

Strengths:

  • Physically strong guard
  • Attacks well going to his left hand. Absorbs body contact with ease. Can finish below or above the rim
  • Streaky shooter, but has good form and has been knocking them down this year. He has a number of ways to get his shot off. Hayes has a handle that allows him to create space. Does an excellent job using his body to get into defenders before making a move
  • Crisp passer that snaps the ball around. He makes quick decisions in the pick-and-roll, either to get downhill for his own shot or to whip a pass to a teammate for a shot. Definitely a plus passer
  • Plays the passing lanes well defensively

Weaknesses:

  • Highly dependent on driving to his left hand. Looks much more comfortable coming off screens going left and making plays to his strong hand
  • Shot has improved but is still relatively streaky
  • He is a good athlete but doesn’t always change speeds effectively. Not overly explosive with the ball
  •  Still figuring out how to balance being a primary playmaker and sound decision-maker. Only 18-years-old and this is his first year as a full-time point guard
