ICYMI: Jaxson Hayes Dominates Bulls in Summer League

New Orleans Pelicans rookie center Jaxson Hayes put on an absolute show in Monday’s Summer League 109-72 drubbing against the Chicago Bulls with 28 points. The former Longhorn showed the NBA his defensive ability by getting a beautiful chase-down block against Bulls forward Chandler Hutchinson… with his elbow.

That wasn’t the only highlight of the night from the Pelican’s second draft pick. On the same team that has sensation Zion Williamson (who can dunk on anyone at any time at all for any reason), the 8th overall pick showed the NBA that his fellow rookie teammate out of Duke isn’t the only one that can put someone in a body bag after DETONATING on Mychal Mulder.

If this is what we can expect from the New Orleans rookie, then the Pelicans will have the most athletic front court in the NBA without any shadow of a doubt.
