Killian Hayes Rumors

Knicks are in the No. 7 slot here, dropping one pick below their place in the lottery standings. But a few new teams in front of them, each with different needs. What separates Hayes from other point guards in that range? Can the Knicks finally get a point guard who can shoot? Vecenie: So it’s funny you mention “shoot” here, because that’s actually one thing that executives around the NBA have concerns about with Hayes. He has good touch and has flashed good free throw percentages at lower levels, but he’s not really been able to consistently make 3s at a high level. That’s the No. 1 thing he has to work on.
This year’s camp will be headlined by Sekou Doumbouya (France), Luka Samanic (Croatia), Killian Hayes (France), N’Faly Dante (Mali), Charles Bassey (Nigeria) and others. Doumbouya and Samanic are both projected as top-10 picks in the 2019 draft, having dominated the Under-18 European Championships despite playing up a year or two on the competition. Doumbouya, a strong and explosive power forward with soft touch on his jumper, is already playing professional basketball in France’s second division, and he’s fresh off an impressive 26-point outing (on 12 attempts) this past weekend. Samanic is a versatile, 6-foot-11 power forward whose game is tailor-made for a camp of this setting with his ability to dribble, pass, shoot and defend multiple positions.
