2020 Fantasy Outlook
Hayes has played professionally overseas during the past three seasons, averaging 11.6 points, 5.4 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 1.5 steals last year with Ratiopharm Ulm in Germany. The 6-foot-5 lefty guard is primarily a playmaker who is great in the pick-and-roll. At 215 pounds, he can also use his size to outmuscle smaller defenders. The initial concern for Hayes will be his struggles from beyond the arc, as he shot only 29.4 percent last season. He's also not an elite athlete and isn't an especially strong defender. Still, Hayes should be expected to be a focal point of the Pistons' rebuild and should have plenty of opportunities on the court. It wouldn't be surprising if he saw near 30 minutes per game, though he'll have to initially compete with Derrick Rose for playing time. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio

Hayes was born July 27, 2001 in Lakeland, Florida, but grew up in France. His father, an American, is DeRon Hayes, who played college basketball for Penn State. DeRon played professionally in multiple countries, including France, where Killian grew up and played professionally himself. Hayes' mother, Sandrine, is a native of Cholet, France. Hayes debuted for Cholet's under-21 team, Espoirs Cholet, in the 2016-17 season at age 16. In the LNB Espoirs, the tall guard was often competing against opponents who were five years older. In his second Espoirs season, he was named MVP of the regular season. The left-handed Hayes then signed a three-year deal with ratiopharm Ulm of the Basketball Bundesliga (BBL), the top league in Germany. After one year with Ulm, Hayes declared for the 2020 NBA Draft.

College/International Summary

Prior to the NBA, Hayes began playing professionally in France. In 2017, he won MVP of the U16 Euro Championship A. During the 2017-18 season with Espoirs Cholet and Cholet Basket, the guard averaged 13.5 points, 5.9 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 2.1 steals in 25.6 minutes. He also was selected to the 2018 U17 World Cup All-Tournament Team. The following season, Hayes remained with Cholet Basket and averaged 7.1 points, 3.1 assists and 2.3 rebounds in 19.7 minutes. During his final campaign overseas, Hayes played for Ratiopharm Ulm in Germany. He averaged 11.6 points, 5.4 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 1.5 steals in 24.8 minutes. Arguably Hayes' best performance in 2019-20 was Nov. 17 in a win over Brose Baskets Bamberg, where he recorded 24 points (9-13 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five assists, three steals, two rebounds and one block in 30 minutes.

Hayes (hip) won't require surgery and will be reevaluated in eight weeks after rest and rehabilitation, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
The 19-year-old, who suffered the hip injury Jan. 4 against the Bucks, will be sidelined for the remainder of the first half of the 2020-21 campaign. The second half of the season is expected to begin in mid-March -- though the NBA hasn't officially set the schedule -- and Hayes' status should be updated as he progresses through the rehab process.
