LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne bolstered its frontcourt by signing big man Kevarrius Hayes to a one-year deal, the club announced Monday. Hayes (2.05 meters, 23 years old) arrives from Acqua San Bernardo Cantu with which he led the Italian League in blocks (2.6 bpg.) last season. He also averaged 9.6 points and 7.3 rebounds in 20 games. Cantu was the first stop in his professional basketball career. Before that, Hayes finished his college career at the University of Florida, where he averaged 8.3 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.9 blocks in 36 NCAA games in the 2018-19 campaign - his senior year. He is now set to make his Turkish Airlines EuroLeague debut.
