And on Rockets.com

:
Chuck Hayes impressed Rick Adelman Wednesday with his passing. “We found out that Chuck and Luis can really pass the ball,” he said. “I thought Luis probably could because I watched him on tape in Europe, but with Chuck, I never really saw him have the ball in his hands and read things. And he really does it well. That’s really an advantage to what we’re trying to do.”

…Battle for minutes

SAME DAY payday loans
: Alston must play well to hold off Luther Head. Head does many things well but is a role player at this point. Kirk Snyder is a great scorer, but will play limited minutes. Chuck Hayes is a Jeff Van Gundy-type player and will be among the NBA leaders in rebounds per minute. Bob Sura averaged 10.3 points, 5.5 rebounds and 5.2 assists in 61 games last season, but he is always hurt. He won’t impact fantasy, but his health may determine the minutes awarded to others.

My Take: “A Jeff Van Gundy- type player.”
The irony here is when Chuck was at UK he was “a Tubby Smith – type player.”  Poor guy, can’t they just call him a coach’s dream and get it over with! ::big grin::
Good to see people outside of the Chron admiring Chuck’s work ethic.

…In the Rockets’ 72-69 victory over the Mavs on Tuesday, Yao’s first game of the preseason, Battier started at small forward, with McGrady sliding to the backcourt. That made Chuck Hayes the starting power forward in a decided departure from Van Gundy’s oft-stated desire to get range shooting in between McGrady and Yao.

But when Van Gundy returned McGrady and Yao to the game, and through much of the second half, he had Battier at power forward with McGrady back at his usual small forward spot and Kirk Snyder or Luther Head at shooting guard.

All the experimenting — including more zone defense in one night than perhaps in all of last season — offered little definitive….

Solid in paint

Hayes does not have the option of playing differently depending on whom he goes against. He’s almost always going to be shorter, and he said he plays pretty much the same way in every matchup.”I’ve been guarding guys bigger than me my whole career, even in high school,” Hayes said. “There’s always an advantage and disadvantage. Of course, the disadvantage to me is the height. My advantage is my speed and quickness, making them play multiple pick-and-rolls, making them run up and down the court.”

As a power forward between McGrady and Yao, Hayes cannot bring the perimeter shooting of Battier or even the midrange shooting of Juwan Howard. But he is the Rockets’ most prolific rebounding forward.

More crucial, perhaps, if teams double off him, as many undoubtedly will if the Rockets are making shots, he can cut to the basket, catch and finish.

“You can’t put guys out there … that don’t have to be guarded,” Van Gundy said. “The area they have to be guarded when you put Chuck out there would be less. Certainly, I think Chuck has good hands and a good ability to finish around the basket. I think he has a chance to make people pay with second shots as well. He’s a tremendous screener.

Hayes versatile down low

“The thing that is a challenge for Chuck is can he do it every night? I’m absolutely convinced off last year, if I don’t play Chuck for two games and I insert him, he’s going to play a great game. The challenge for him is can he be an everyday, every-play player in an every-night rotation for a good team in the NBA. Until he gets that chance, I don’t know. But I have a good idea.”There was little else to be sure about, even if a few positions had fallen into place.

Some players made some positive first impressions in their preseason games, giving their teams hope they made excellent decisions in acquiring them.

Like it was discussed yesterday, it’s entirely too early for anyone make any kind of statement about trends, but it is an indicator. Trends start somewhere and there is no better time to start a good one than game one of the preseason.

Here are a few players that got off on the right foot:

Chuck Hayes/Steve Novak, Houston RocketsWith Yao Ming out the Rockets had to work a bit to find someone to fill the middle – and it wasn’t going to be Dikembe Mutombo who simply has to show in preseason he can still move his feet to be considered good to go. The answer seemed to be 6-6 forward Chuck Hayes. Now, Hayes is decent, but playing center? Good thing the Memphis Grizzlies also have no center, but Hayes seemed fine grabbing 10 rebounds to go with four points in 25 minutes. Relentless on the glass, Hayes has a chance to be a rebounding monster given the opportunity. With Mutombo’s age a bigger issue every season finding a player who can hold down the middle for spurts at a time while Yao rests is a must.

Steve Novak lit up the Vegas Summer League in July and apparently isn’t relaxing a bit. The 6-10 rookie forward from Marquette – yep, taller than Hayes by a significant margin – is a dead-eye outside shooter and proved it in his first NBA game by hitting 4-6 shots (2-4 from deep) and both of his free throws for 12 points in 23 minutes. He also grabbed three rebounds and two assists.

One of the Rockets biggest question marks revolves around the quality of their bench and whether or not they can handle things if they suffer a major injury – like Yao and Tracy McGrady seem to do on an annual basis. If Hayes and Novak continue to prove they can handle the load the Rockets will be a factor even if one of their two superstars gets injured.
