Jaxson Hayes came off the bench on Saturday and scored 13 points on 4-of-8 shooting with six rebounds and one steal in 23 minutes.
Derrick Favors (six points in 12 minutes) returned tonight and started for the Pelicans. Favors is a better player than Hayes right now, but Hayes could see an increased role next season if the unrestricted free-agent Favors doesn't return to the Pelicans. Hayes deserves a roster spot on rebuilding teams in dynasty leagues as he profiles to potentially be a high-efficiency double-double threat with blocks.
