Able to play at both guard positions, Hayes shines with his ball handling. « He is able to make plays for others or for himself » said his U22 coach Sylvain Delorme. « He can dominate one-on-one, thanks to great fundamentals, his athletic abilities and his ability to finish plays in the paint » added Lamine Kébé, France U17 National Basketball Team coach. « I like to watch James Harden for the way he plays one-on-one, Manu Ginobili for the way he moves with the ball, and Lou Williams for his scoring skills » confessed Hayes.

His game was modeled after both the US and the European basketball style. Killian grew up in France, going back to Florida during summers. « It's my second home ». You get when the cultural-mix comes from !
