Clippers Waive Chuck Hayes, Keep Mbah a Moute

3:37pm: Hayes has officially ben waived, the team announced.

3:18pm: The team will retain Luc Mbah a Moute and his non-guaranteed contract for opening night, Woike also hears (Twitter link). He’s the lone remaining Clipper without a full guarantee, as our roster count shows.

2:55pm: The Clippers will waive center Chuck Hayes, Dan Woike of The Orange County Register reports (Twitter link). Hayes’ minimum salary arrangement was non-guaranteed, so the move won’t cost Los Angeles any funds as a result.

Through 643 career NBA regular season contests, the 6’6″ center has averaged 3.7 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 1.2 assists. His career shooting numbers are .498/.000/.618. Hayes has been in the league 10 seasons after going undrafted out of Kentucky.

This move reduces the Clippers’ roster count to 15 players, which is the regular season maximum.

    No surprise there, they went with younger player that can carve out a role as defensive specialist.

      I couldn’t see Hayes getting minutes. They have more options on the wing than last year, but the rotation is far from set in stone. Mbah a Moute could see some court time this season.
