“I was hearing the feedback from the Pistons and everything, and I knew it was one of the situations that Killian wanted,” Bynum said. “He had a great conversation with coach (Dwane) Casey and I think that was everything. It’s one of those situations where I think that the energy that Killian put out there, the effort that he put out and the hard work, and then me being around him, I think that’s how Detroit came about. “I think that he landed in the perfect situation — a situation that he wants to be in, in a place that wants him.”
Hayes was high on Detroit’s draft board for multiple reasons. His size, feel for the game and experience as a European player separated him from much of the rest of the pack. Bynum is confident Hayes will have a head start in his transition to the NBA, echoing sentiments from both Casey and Weaver. Hayes has already been playing professional basketball for three years, and prior to his professional debut, he was surrounded by the game. His dad, DeRon, was a standout at Penn State from 1989-93. When Hayes was a baby, DeRon moved the family to Cholet, France after signing with LNB Pro A, France’s top men’s basketball league.
