On Monday, athletic footwear company Puma announced it has signed Pistons point guard Killian Hayes as a global ambassador.

Hayes, who became the highest-drafted French player ever when the Pistons selected him seventh overall in 2020, will become Puma’s first men’s basketball ambassador in France. Hayes will participate in several projects to help raise the brand’s awareness in France.
