The Los Angeles Lakers are signing forward Nigel 海耶斯 of G League’联盟消息人士告诉雅虎，韦斯特切斯特的合同为期10天。
-Shams Charania（@ShamsCharania） 一月18，2018
It was recently reported that the Lakers are signing former Wisconsin Badger and current Westchester Knick Nigel 海耶斯 to a 10-day contract. 海耶斯 has played the most games of any G联赛 player this season and had a long four year career at Wisconsin, giving us plenty of film and data to understand who he is and what he’会带到洛杉矶。
One major area to address for LA is their shooting. Having a SF/PF type player that would fit alongside 凯尔·库兹玛（Kyle Kuzma） and replace Corey Brewer that would bring more shooting to the bench. And 海耶斯 looks like he’那个家伙（就像 贾米尔·威尔逊（Jamil Wilson）本来会 如果湖人队按照他最初的传言签下了他）。
海耶斯 is shooting lights out so far this season, but it wasn’这样在大学里。在大二（大三）三年级之前，他在每个大二的时候都拥有足够大的样本，但是与我们不同’重新看到这个季节。
A steady upward trend is nice to see from 海耶斯 on his guarded shooting. One might say he’逐渐成长为一名射手，随着时间的流逝，他变得更加舒适。
But 海耶斯 is more than just a shooter. Throughout his time at Wisconsin and his time as a pro, 海耶斯 has always had a tendency to take his man down low and do work in the post. 34%, 23%, 26%, and 31% of his possessions in his four years at Wisconsin were spend on post ups, respectively.
Along with his post ups, 海耶斯 will isolate (13%) and pick and pop (7%). But he spots up just as much as he isolates, picks and pops, and posts up combined. 海耶斯 top usage, which wasn’在大学的情况下，一直是一名出色的球员。
当海斯抓住时，他要么射门要么就传球。奈杰尔不是’•会进攻掩护区并经常上拉或到达篮筐的球员。他’s close to the bottom in the G联赛 in terms of frequency at those two things. So we shouldn’t expect him to be attacking off of drives. And when he has, his points per possession pulling up is only better than 7% of G联赛 players, and his efficiency at the rim is only better than 5%.
What 海耶斯 will do is catch and shoot, and he’s darn good at it. His overall catch and shoot points per possession efficiency is better than 94% of the G联赛 at 1.197 PPP. 那’比任何一个湖人都要好，如果他能在大联盟中保持同样的效率，那么他将排在联盟第28位。
他可以用投篮动作拉低地板并向低处猛击，但不会’经常（或很好）充当驾驶员。他’s not going to run the pick and roll at all either. For those reasons, I think 海耶斯’最好的用途是作为一个组合大个子。他的使用率也可以与KCP或Lonzo媲美，因此他’不是一个高管家’我需要适应角色扮演者的角色。
海耶斯’ strong base makes him a candidate to be able to hold his own in the post defensively, which will be an asset. I was able to see lots of 海耶斯 at Wisconsin due to my interest in their scheme. He was a great defender, and the data matches that. He’不是一个可以轻松移动的人，也可以横向移动。他’在外线防守3s-5s可能还不错，但可能会与较快的球员对抗。
His data in the G联赛 is not flattering, but opponents have shot 55% on unguarded 3-pointers that were attributed to 海耶斯. We know from several studies, including 尼龙微积分，个人捍卫者不’对他们所面对的三分球百分比的影响很大。因此，当某人非常不幸时，’以这种方式对他们不利，我们需要考虑这一点，而不仅仅是看海斯’第23个百分位防守并假设他’s a bad defender. When we normalize that 3-point rate, 海耶斯 is a 51st percentile defender in the G联赛 this season. Not fantastic, but not too bad either. 那 should address his poor spot up defensive numbers.
But 海耶斯 has struggled defending at the rim as well, where he’排在第18个百分位，并且他的团队数据最差。他 ’s also in the 16th percentile defending the post (albeit on a small number of possessions) and 15th percentile defending in isolation. 海耶斯 has been good defending pick and pops and pick and roll ball handlers.
海耶斯 is an interesting fit both offensively and defensively due to his offensive efficiencies and frequencies and his defensive efficiencies, but I see him fitting in well. Offensively he can take advantage of mismatches in the post as well as spacing the floor. He just isn’一个伟大的创造者，他手里握着球，很可能会获胜’扮演传统的机翼型角色。
I can also say 海耶斯 is someone that plays well fundamentally. He’开箱即用，设置好的屏幕，并做一些小事，以帮助团队赢得比赛，即使他们没有’t显示在盒子分数中。
“I think it’s good that the Lakers are exploring this market and sifting through G联赛 players with potential to be long term adds if they show enough potential. They did this last year with David Nwaba (*sheds single tear*) who is proving to be a viable rotation player in Chicago this year. I’d。宁愿让他们继续以这种方式使用第15名，而不是让一位经验丰富的球员很少打球，或者其功用更多地与他的教学/指导联系在一起，而不是长期或长期提供的东西潜在。
