Houston Rockets Close to Signing Chuck Hayes

The Houston Rockets are close to bringing Chuck Hayes back after the former Kentucky star played several seasons with Sacramento and Toronto.

According to Chron.com, the Rockets are "close to an agreement" with Hayes.

Here is an excerpt:

‏The Rockets are “close to an agreement” to bring back forward/center Chuck Hayes, Hayes’ agent Calvin Andrews said.

Hayes met with Rockets coach Kevin McHale and much of the Rockets’ front office during a summer league game last week in Las Vegas when he was in town to coach an AAU team. The Rockets left thinking there could be a place on the roster before training camp, but with the trade of Ty Lawson moving four players, the Rockets and Hayes’ representatives moved close to a deal.

“The trade opens some doors,” Andrews said. “We just have to hammer out some fine details.”
