Hayes signed a contract with Zalgiris on June 12, Stefan Djordjevic of Eurohoops.net reports.
ANALYSIS
Hayes' contract is a one-year deal that contains an option for the 2020-21 season and an opt-out clause in the event any NBA opportunities arise. The American forward played nine games at the NBA level in 2017-18 before making the jump abroad last season with Turkish club Galatasaray. In 10 EuroCup contests with Galatasaray, the 6-foot-8 forward averaged 15.7 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game. He'll notice stiffer competition as he moves up to the EuroLeague, though it's expected he'll have a regular spot in the Zalgiris frontcourt rotation. Before joining Zalgiris, Hayes will take part in the Las Vegas Summer League with the Los Angeles Clippers, per Jonathan Givony of ESPN.com reports.
