Lazar Hayward
Team: Marquette Golden EaglesHeight: 6-6 Born: 11/26/1986
Class-Eligibility: Sr-SrWeight: 225 Birthplace: Buffalo, NY


Scouting Report

A second-team all-Big East selection and honorable mention All-America, Hayward not only averaged 18.1 points and 7.5 rebounds for Marquette, but he also provided leadership in helping the Golden Eagles reach a fifth consecutive NCAA tournament. While Hayward set a school record with 138 games played, finished second in scoring with 1,859 points and fifth with 910 rebounds, it seems unlikely there is a place for him in the NBA despite his versatility of playing either forward position. At Marquette, he essentially was an undersized power forward with the ability to knock down the 3-pointer when left open due to his quick release. Despite his lack of size, he showed a willingness to operate in the low post offensively and used superior positioning and a soft touch to overcome his lack of height. Hayward lacks NBA-level quickness on both ends of the floor, and this is his biggest detraction. He cannot take his defender off the dribble, nor can he shoot off the dribble. Additionally, he does not have a consistent ability to drive to the basket in control. Hayward's lack of lateral quickness would make him a defensive liability against NBA small forwards of his size. His basketball IQ and willingness to play team ball can compensate for some of that lack of speed, but Hayward is more likely to latch on to a team as a free agent heading into a summer league as opposed to being a second-round draft pick.
