Notes 
 Hayes has provided serviceable scoring. blocks, and occasionally rebounds in two seasons with the Pelicans, but he's never averaged more than 16 minutes a game in either season. That's not likely to change in 21-22, as he competes with Jonas Valanciunas and Willy Hernangomez for center minutes. Hayes remains a hold in dynasty leagues, but he can be avoided in redraft formats outside the deepest of leagues.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
Reid continued to improve in Year 2, making the most of his career-high 19.1 minutes per game. When given additional opportunities, however, he was huge for fantasy managers. Across 15 starts, Reid averaged 13.1 points, 6.3 boards, and 2.7 stocks. One of the most efficient blockers in basketball, Reid has appeal off the bench but even greater appeal if Karl-Anthony Towns is forced to miss time. Reid was 165 in per-game average and 108 in total fantasy production a season ago, and he deserves consideration as an end-of-round target in 12-team leagues.
