Last month, Chuck Hayes agreed to a one-year deal with the Houston Rockets, but apparently, he’s going to pass. Hayes’ agent Calvin Andrews told Yahoo’s Marc Spears that Hayes will NOT sign with the Rockets due to salary cap issues.
Hayes has discussed a future in coaching, and apparently has multiple coaching/front office job offers, but according to his agent, he still wants to play. In a statement, Andrews said Hayes has spent a lot of time preparing and training for this season, and is “in better shape than he has been in years.” While it didn’t work out with Houston, Hayes and his agent will look for other playing opportunities.
Best of luck, Chuck.
