Pelicans select Jaxson Hayes at No. 8

The New Orleans Pelicans have drafted Texas center Jaxson Hayes with the No. 8 selection in the 2019 NBA Draft.

What It Means:

Hayes is the first center off the board, and the Pelicans were able to pick him up despite trading back from No. 4. He'll join Zion Williamson in hoping to reinvigorate the bayou.

As a freshman at Texas, Hayes averaged 10.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game.
