Killian Hayes, on his 7th position in the NBA Draft: “It’s a record to hold, but it’s not something I was aiming for. I’m just trying to be in an ideal situation where I can play and show what I’m capable of. As soon as I was selected, Sekou sent me the emoji eyes, which looked away. I told her in French “I arrive”. I see Detroit does a lot of transfers. I hope he stays in Detroit and that all goes well.
I can certainly learn from him. I remember when I was 10, 11, watching D. Rose’s highlights. I can really learn a lot from him about the game. He’s been in the league for a long time now, so he knows the game and how it plays out in the NBA. So I’m very excited to play with him and learn from him.
I am super excited. I can’t wait for the season to start. I’ve been training for eight straight months and now I’m just waiting to get back on the pitch and show what I’m capable of. I will first of all try to prove to my teammates and my coaches that they can really trust me. I’ll give it my all on the pitch. And when the matches come, we’ll have to bring out the best in everyone so that we can win. “
