Nice. Hayes is a young version of JaVale.
Don't love the off the court stuff or that the Pelicans just let him walk
https://www.si.com/nba/pelicans/bas...ree years,of weekly domestic violence classes.
But the potential and raw skill is there. For the min, he's a good pickup.
Time for Handy to ask for a raise.
Yeah not a fan of the off court stuff but the player is good. Good size and athleticism.
Thinking Pelicans let him go because they don’t have room for him. Val, Zion, Nance, Trey Murphy all ahead of him… his playtime went down last season
Another great value pick. He has game for more than the vet min, just hasn't worked out for him yet.
It's a great gamble. He's also a nice cover when AD is out, he's young.
His biggest strenghts are on defense, which works great for us.
My initial reaction is I prefer bamba, but maybe he gets more elsewhere.
What I know about “Purple” Hayes is that he is young, athletic, tall and can hit FTs. That’s about it. Probably the same impact as Bamba, but in a different way. Nothing special, but we desperately need a backup big to eat some minutes.
I like Bamba’s potential to stretch the D, but appreciate the motor that Hayes has. He has his limitations, but whenever I’ve watched the guy he brings 100% energy. I could go either way between him and Bamba.
Do not like. I actually think this is horrible. Ugh.
He’s super skinny, so he’ll get pushed around. A headcase, actually got arrested last year i think? There should be a video on it.
He jumps out of the bldg though and puts posters on ppl.
With this, probably need to bring back Kardashian.
Vet minimum. No risk, only reward.
Definitely. A vet mentor big will be helpful for him.
i like this signing a lot. still need another big man though. i'd like to see bamba back or even better, someone like plumlee or biyombo
Can't do any less for us than Bamba did...
A lottery pick from the Pelicans, bringing a bit of balance to that AD trade with all the lottery picks we gave up.
Great add. He’s gonna have a similar impact that Dwight and javale did for us
he was one of the pieces they traded our #4 pick (garland) for. some folks were saying it was part of the reason we totally lost the AD trade. i mean, JAXSON HAYES! anyway, here he is.
