  1. Chuck Hayes fails physical with Kings, contract voided

    Dec 19, 2011, 3:51 PM EDT

    Chuck Hayes

    In the wake of what happened with Jeff Green of the Celtics last week, we can only hope that this isn’t as serious or at least is as treatable. In a surprise move the Sacramento Kings have voided the free agent contract of Chuck Hayes, the team announced, as reported by CSNBayArea.com. He had abnormalities appear…

  2. The Houston Rockets have not gotten over the Pau Gasol trade falling through

    Dec 18, 2011, 2:12 PM EDT

    Spain's Pau Gasol looks at the timeboard

    It was supposed to be different this time. After years of trying to trade for a legitimate star or sign one in free agency and having it fall apart at every turn, the Rockets were going to land their big fish. It was there on the table. It was agreed to by all parties. And…

  3. Kings’ Chuck Hayes held out of practice after heart test

    Chuck Hayes

    Chuck Hayes was a big free agent signing for the Sacramento Kings — they needed someone to actually play defense and bring some consistency to the frontcourt and Hayes will do all that. Or rather, he will once he gets back on the court. He was pulled off it Thursday because a stress echocardiogram revealed…

  5. On Marcus Thornton and the messages sent in free agency

    Dec 10, 2011, 10:49 PM EDT

    Marcus Thornton

    There’s no use in denying it: free agency in the NBA is kind of a blast, and particularly so when the entire period is condensed into a few hyper-active weeks of player movement. But beyond the surface-level intrigue of roster shuffling is a pretty clear demonstration of league-wide values. Free agency gives general managers the…

  6. 2011 NBA Free Agency and Trade Current Events: This league is bananas, b-a-n-a-n-a-s

    Dec 10, 2011, 10:08 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Chicago Bulls

    Let’s say you had a full day of work on Thursday, and then a dinner engagement with a friend, or your kid had a basketball game or something. Then on Friday you had another full day, and then a work Christmas party. This is the holiday season, everyone’s busy. Perhaps you’ve missed what’s gone on in…

  7. Kings sign Chuck Hayes to a modest four-year, $21 million deal

    Dec 9, 2011, 4:07 PM EDT

    Chuck Hayes

    The post-lockout free agency period has seen teams throw gobs of money at Caron Butler, Tyson Chandler, and Nene, but out in Sactown they’re showing some impressive restraint. The Kings aren’t in any rush to substantial salary commitments to their books, but in their efforts to build up their roster and meet the league’s payroll…

  8. Monday morning one liners: How CP3, Dwight Howard can team up

    Dwight Howard Chris Paul

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories that are not other posts here at PBT. What if the Hornets traded Chris Paul to the Magic? That would be interesting. The Nets are going very hard after Nene. New Orleans has made bringing back David West its top priority. The Lakers might consider Delonte West…

  9. Friday morning one liners: Where Afflalo gets some love

    Dec 2, 2011, 11:01 AM EDT

    Arron Afflalo

    Our daily list of things you should know about that didn’t fit in our other posts. Who is the most coveted free agent not over 6’11? Arron Afflalo of the Nuggets, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein. He is restricted and Denver will match any reasonable offer. Brandon Rush made some tweets that would have gotten…

  10. Thursday morning one liners: NBA rumor mill keeps churning

    Dec 1, 2011, 11:01 AM EDT

    Durant football

    LeBron James and Kevin Durant played flag football Wednesday night. The score: Nobody tore an ACL. That’s the only score that matters. If you want to get an early jump on MVP voting (which, admittedly, may be a tad premature what with training camps not even open yet) we’ve got you covered here at NBC.…

  11. Rockets Chuck Hayes sprains ankle, out 2-4 weeks

    Chuck Hayes dunk

    You knew it was not going to be good when reports surfaced that Rockets forward Chuck Hayes had to leave practice Tuesday in a wheelchair. Now comes the news that he will be out 2-4 weeks due to a moderate to severe sprain of his right ankle, according to Rockets.com reporter Jason Friedman. Hayes has…

  12. Rockets Jared Jeffries expects to be traded

    Jared Jeffries is a veteran, he can read the writing on the wall. He has played a total of 61 minutes for the Rockets this season, racking up more DPNs than games he has seen the floor (playing behind other forwards such as Chuck Hayes, Luis Scola and Shane Battier). He has an expiring $7.4…

  13. Chuck Hayes to miss final two preseason games with sprained right ankle

    Oct 20, 2010, 7:22 PM EDT

    Chuck Hayes

    Here’s the report, courtesy of FanHouse’s Sam Amick: Houston forward Chuck Hayes has a sprained right ankle and will miss the Rockets final two preseason games. Even though Hayes is extremely undersized for the center position and completely lacking anything resembling offensive skills, he’s carved out a successful niche for himself in the NBA thanks…

  14. Aaron Brooks wants a contract extension. Not going to happen.

    Sep 29, 2010, 9:58 AM EDT

    The Houston Rockets really don’t do contract extensions. The last non-rookie deal contract extension they did was in 2004 (and that was for Tracy McGrady, which worked out so well). Aaron Brooks — the breakthrough point guard and guy who just won the Most Improved Player award — thinks he should be the exception. This…

  15. Yao Ming is back, still very tall

    Aug 25, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    This is video of Yao Ming working out yesterday, the first of his public workouts (hat tip to Trey Kerby at Ball Don’t Lie). He is still tall and still has a deft touch. That is Chuck Hayes talking smack by the way. The question about Yao is can he stay healthy this season. Good…

  16. Chuck Hayes will remain a Rocket

    May 8, 2010, 2:30 PM EDT

    The smallest center in the league will not be going anywhere this summer. Chuck Hayes, who this year turned himself into one of the most acclaimed defensive centers despite only being listed at 6-6, will be retained by the Rockets, according to the Houston Chronicle. Hayes is one of the icons of the Morey APBRMetric…
