Jaxson Hayes threw down an unreal dunk during an NBA Summer League game Monday night.

Hayes, who is a rookie for the Pelicans, damn near cleared a guy on the Bulls during the game for the gigantic dunk. (RELATED: New Orleans Pelicans Pick Zion Williamson First Overall In The NBA Draft)

I know it’s only summer league, but this dunk is absolutely mind-boggling. Watch the unbelievable video below.

That’s the kind of athleticism you simply have to be born with. You can’t be taught how to jump that high. You just can’t.

You either have the kind of bounce Hayes has or you’re grounded like the rest of us. The craziest part here is the fact the Pelicans have this freak of nature athlete and Zion Williamson together.

Talk about a duo that can take flight at any point in time.

Something tells me these two are going to put together plenty of highlights together. Williamson was the most athletic guy in the draft, and I’m guessing Hayes might have been number two.

Judging from the dunk we all just saw, the man has some incredible bounce.

The 2019 season is going to be a fun one, and I fully expect Zion and Hayes to light it up together for the Pelicans.
