ESPN reported this afternoon that former Rockets forward Chuck Hayes failed the team physical in Sacramento and has been released.
Hayes was signed by the Kings to a four year $21 million dollar contract on December 9th.
The complete details of the physical have yet to be released, but the preliminary reports suggest that the Kings’ team doctors found a heart abnormality.
The implications of Hayes’ release for the Rockets are potentially auspicious. Should he pass a Houston physical, the team remains $9 million dollars under the NBA salary cap and could possibly resign its former player.
