Killian Hayes is one of the newer players to have joined the NBA and clearly, he lacks a lot of experience and etiquette when it comes to playing on the court. The Detroit Pistons star still has a lot of growing to do, but he has shown some improvement lately. Unfortunately, he ended up knocking out Mo Wagner during his most recent game, something that should have never happened.
Last night, the young star made headlines for all the wrong reasons during the Pistons’ game against the Orlando Magic. During the game, Hayes punched Mo Wagner in the back of the head after being pushed out of bounds. This led to Wagner getting knocked out and keeling over on the Pistons bench.
This almost resulted in a huge fight between the two teams, as many Magic players jumped off the bench to begin a fight. It was broken up and now it seems many players could be looking at suspensions.
After the incident, Hayes and Wagner were both ejected from the match. In addition to that, the PA announcer made sure to inform people that if they got up, they could be arrested, so that any sort of riot could be avoided.
It is likely the NBA will take swift action after this incident, as it is not every day that a player gets legitimately knocked out in the middle of a game. We will keep you updated on this developing story.
