Killian Hayes is an athletic, skilled playmaker whose versatility could allow him to thrive at the NBA level. He is a shot creator that can reliably get to the rim to garner scores, and he also is a savvy playmaker that can rack up assists.
He also is an aggressive defender that can get numerous steals and stops for his team. He will need to improve his jump shot, but he is a very talented player that could end up being one of the best players to come out of the 2020 draft class.
