Detroit Pistons: Killian Hayes needs to learn to play off the ball
A lot has been made of what Killian Hayes’ ultimate position in the NBA will be, as he has the size and strength to play shooting guard or wing and some question whether he has the speed or athleticism to play the point.
He needs to get healthy first obviously, but I’d love for Hayes to be working on his game off the ball, so the Detroit Pistons can move him around if they end up drafting another point guard in the future.
Hayes has the size and strength to be a plus defender and may have a future as some sort of hybrid guard who plays all over the place and defends multiple spots.
He needs improvement in a lot of areas, and it’s a shame he is not getting big minutes right now to do it.
Detroit Pistons: Saben Lee needs to extend his range
Saben Lee has flashed tantalizing athleticism at the point guard for the Detroit Pistons this season in his limited minutes and had his best game in the most recent loss.
He has hops, there there is no doubt about that, and he has shown an ability to get into the lane and set up teammates with his passing.
But if he can’t shoot, teams are just going to sag off him and make it a lot more difficult for him to penetrate, so even a league average 3-point shot would help his cause considerably.
He should be working all offseason on extending his range to the 3-point line.
