The Pistons are waiving Hayes on Thursday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

With several trade deadline additions made by Detroit, Hayes is being waived to create space on the roster. While the 2021 No. 7 overall pick has started in 31 of his 42 appearances this season, he has struggled mightily. Hayes averaged 6.9 points, 4.9 assists and 2.8 rebounds in 24.0 minutes per game while shooting 41.3 percent from the field and 29.7 percent from three-point range. Still just 22 years old, Hayes should still have some appeal in free agency as a developmental point guard.
