    I’m guessing he replaces Brewer on the roster when he gets included as trade filler.

    I like it, no risk, possible reward. Not a star player, but could be a decent role player that can shoot threes, and as multiple people have said, replace someone in a trade.

    weren't we debating this around draft time? i was a fan, but others weren't, if i recall. we'll see. i thought he looked like a softer draymond type. smart player, moderately skilled. slightly undersized for ideal position (4).

    Cool to see him get some run there at the end, but kinda happy that we got that roster spot back to facilitate any trade that has more incoming players coming back our way.

    Must be a bummer not to get a shot after you sign a little contract like that. Bad timing.

    I hope he gets another shot somewhere.

    yeah, my response wasn't meant to be snide about hayes but more to speak to the brutality of the business.

    He made it to the NBA which many would consider a successful basketball career. He just needs to keep working hard for the next opportunity.

    I didn't think you were being flippant, it's just the reality of the fringe NBA player.

    He seems like a nice kid though and I wish he'd gotten more opportunities. If he'd been here during our 9 game slide, he'd probably have gotten a little more opportunity. Instead he gets here when we're cooking and in a groove. Just bad timing.

    Finally got some grind yesterday. Saw him hustling for some loose balls but missed some open jumpers. Think if they went in he would be on a second 10 day.
