Pelicans' Jaxson Hayes: Strong showing in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayes registered 13 points (6-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt), seven rebounds, one assist and one block across 24 minutes during the Pelicans' 99-78 win over the Cavaliers in a Las Vegas Summer League game Wednesday.

Hayes was outdone by fellow first-round pick Nickeil Alexander-Walker, but he turned in a solid showing in his own right. The eight overall pick is averaging 20.5 points (on 70.0 percent shooting), 5.5 rebounds and 2.0 blocks over 22.0 minutes in two Las Vegas games.

Pelicans' Jaxson Hayes: Scores game-high 28 points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayes totaled 28 points (10-15 FG, 8-14 FT), four rebounds and three blocks across 20 minutes in the Pelicans' 109-72 win over the Bulls in the Las Vegas Summer League on Monday.

The No. 8 pick showed off his athleticism with some highlight plays, including a ferocious dunk. The former Longhorn was considered one of the top prospects in this year's draft, but there were plenty of questions regarding his health and scoring abilities. For at least one game, those questions have been answered.

Pelicans' Jaxson Hayes: Headed to New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayes (knee) was selected by the Pelicans with the eighth overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.

Hayes' freshman season was cut short by what looked like a serious knee injury, but an MRI ultimately revealed no structural damage and it is not expected to impact his status for his rookie season. Hayes, who averaged 10.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game at Texas, is a terrific frontcourt athlete and shot blocker, but there are still plenty of questions surrounding his abilities on offense. Regardless, the frontcourt pairing of Hayes and fellow rookie Zion Williamson will certainly be an explosive one, but the former Longhorn's potential rests on his ability to become a productive offensive player.
