Killian Hayes is a clear target of the New York Knicks. Hayes believes he has shown a lot of new things since he last played eight months ago for Ratiopharm Ulm of Germany’s leading professional league.
“Everyone has seen the progress and many changes to my game,” Hayes said in a Zoom call. “What I’ve really improved, really, is my body. As soon as you see me, there is a big difference and change from eight months ago to today”.
“I also shocked a lot of people with my right hand,” Hayes added. “They see me throwing bullets with my right and ending up with floaters with my right hand. My shooting too: some people questioned my shooting form because I had a low release. Now, my release is pretty high. The shot quite well. So all those doubts are gone”.
The Knicks, who first picked eighth place in the NBA draft, haven’t settled Hayes and likely won’t have that chance. The Post learned that the Knicks had planned to do a live workout with the all-rounder point guard eventually, but a recent COVID-19 outbreak at their Tarrytown facility earlier this week understandably called for more caution.
