Chuck Hayes Open To Trade

Since new ownership and management groups assumed control of the Kings, Chuck Hayes' name has surfaced in trade rumors and the Kings have added another power forward (Carl Landry) to a group that already included Hayes, Jason Thompson, and Patrick Patterson. As such, it's no surprise that Chris Haynes of hears from a source close to Hayes that the veteran forward woudn't be opposed to a change of scenery.

Haynes reports that Hayes would welcome a deal if it puts him with the right team and in the right situation, but cautions that the 30-year-old would also have no issue returning to Sacramento for the coming season. Hayes has about $11.68MM left on the remaining two years of his contract, including a $5.72MM salary for 2013/14, so moving him could create a little flexibility both this year and next for the Kings.

Still, it may not be easy finding a taker for Hayes unless he's packaged with a more attractive asset such as Jimmer Fredette. Since signing a lucrative four-year deal with the Kings in December 2011, Hayes has averaged just 2.9 PPG and 4.2 RPG to go along with a 9.9 PER in 128 contests.
