Rockets waive F/C Chuck Hayes.

Hayes may get another opportunity if a contender needs insurance later this season, but that's about it.

The Rockets have reportedly waived Chuck Hayes.

Hayes may latch on with another NBA team, but he won't offer any fantasy value regardless of where he winds up. This is perhaps a sign that Terrence Jones (eye) is nearing a return to the floor.

Chuck Hayes (foot) played 15 minutes on Friday against the Kings.

Hayes scored four points with seven rebounds and two assists as he played in front of a hometown crowd in Sacramento. It's good to see him on the court and playing, but he has no fantasy value.

Chuck Hayes (foot) did not play against the Thunder on Monday.

He probably would not see more than 10 minutes regardless of his foot injury. Hayes is not a fantasy option right now.

Chuck Hayes is questionable to play against the Thunder on Monday with a sprained left foot.

He likely suffered the injury during his nine minutes of action on Sunday. If the Chuck Wagon is out, the Rockets would have to play more Clint Capela and Montrezl Harrell.

The Rockets signed free agent F/C Chuck Hayes on Sunday.

Hayes will likely just provide some emergency depth for the Rockets, so there is no need to consider him in fantasy leagues. He will be a great veteran presence in the locker room, though.

Clippers waive F/C Chuck Hayes.

He is only there as a locker room guy and wasn't going to get minutes. The Chuck Wagon has a lot of miles on it at 32, but some team may still pick him up.

Clippers sign F/C Chuck Hayes.

After the Rockets backed out of a deal to sign him last week, the 32-year-old will now head to Los Angeles to join the Clippers. While he'll help provide the Clips with veteran leadership off the bench, he only played 8.8 minutes per game last season and shouldn't be drafted in standard fantasy leagues.

Chuck Hayes will sign with the Clippers.

He only played 8.8 minutes per game with the Raptors last season and he's almost certainly not going to be in the rotation. Hayes is a good locker room guy and the Clippers are already really deep, so it's easy to like this small pickup.

Chuck Hayes will not be joining the Houston Rockets, according to his agent.

While Hayes had reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with the Rockets, his agent said that his client will not sign with the team due to salary cap issues. The Rockets want Hayes to join their coaching staff, but the 32-year-old still wants to play. We'll keep an eye on Hayes' situation, but fantasy can feel free to ignore the Chuck Wagon as doesn't provide any fantasy value.

The Rockets agreed to a deal with Chuck Hayes.

It's a one-year deal and the Chuck Wagon is back with the Rockets. Hayes signing with the Rockets could be an obstacle for guys like Clint Capela and Montrezl Harrell from getting playing time. Hayes can be ignored in drafts.

The Rockets are "close to an agreement" with Chuck Hayes.

The Chuck Wagon had some success with the Rockets to start his career from 2005-2011. Hayes only played a career-low 8.8 minutes per game and 29 games last season with the Raptors. With the Rockets losing some depth in the Ty Lawson deal, this move makes sense.
Mon, Jul 20, 2015 02:36:00 PM

Free agent Chuck Hayes and the Rockets have mutual interest, according to Hayes' agent.

Hayes was seen with Rockets staff on Monday and it sounds like the veteran big man could rejoin the team he played for from 2005-2011. The Rockets already have Dwight Howard and Clint Capela at center, in addition to Terrence Jones, Donatas Motiejunas and Montrezl Harrell at power forward, so it's hard to envision Hayes playing more than a handful of minutes if he does land in Houston.
Tue, Jul 14, 2015 10:53:00 PM

Chuck Hayes did not need stitches after suffering a cut over his left eye on Sunday.

He played 14 minutes off the bench with two points, 10 boards and two fouls. Hayes is just depth for the most part and the Raptors won't need him much with Jonas Valanciunas playing well.
