Chuck Hayes Appreciation Thread Sac is reported to offer 4 years @ 20 mil Daryl was just waiting for the market to be set (not bid against yourself). 5 mil / year is on the upper end of what Chuck's value is. As a specialty player to be that missing piece, he is absolutely worth that. To the Rockets? It depends on which direction he is going. This is how it will play out: -If we let Chuck go,then we know that... 1)we are getting a legit center that can replace Chuck's value on the court 2)we believe that our own youngsters can fill the void 3)we are rebuilding I believe we will offer Hayes a 5 yr 22 million dollar deal. More guaranteed money because it's a longer contract and at ~4mil/yr, you really can't get a decent backup big in his prime for that price. I also suspect that Hayes will continue to get better as he has been doing in years past.
