It is difficult to build a winner in the NBA without a franchise point guard. It has turned into a guard-oriented league that needs speed and shooting ability on the perimeter. The next great point guard could be in the 2020 NBA Draft. His name? Killian Hayes.
Hayes has climbed up draft boards in recent weeks. The French point guard is viewed as a franchise player with great versatility. He has professional experience overseas which will translate well into the NBA. Hayes has shown shot creation ability but just needs to establish consistency.
