#10•J. HAYES

C • 6'11, 220 lbs; Rookie, Texas

ROOK

NBA ROLE: (RAW) ATHLETIC FINISHER/RIM PROTECTOR

 

Jaxson Hayes is an incredible athlete at the 5 spot - great dunk zone, can flush it home if remotely close to the basket*; rare flight/power dunker, similar to Zion - fearsome interior duo at some point?; active motor, athleticism & defensive instincts could lead to PT as a rook; nice second jump ability, leads way to plenty of putbacks & second chance opps; needs to gain 10-15 pounds of muscle to withstand physical nature of the league; great Watch DOG upside - Hayes stays big when challenged on the interior but needs time to fully understand coverages and communicate defensive schemes; post-lane sprints, lobs, dump offs & putbacks will be primary sources of offense to start out; late-bloomer, could round out game as a inside-out threat or perfect a role as catch & finisher/rim protector; sizable part of Pels new core - Hayes will be groomed as NOP’s center of the future

*nonstop lobs from Lonzo & Jrue?
