I think he's got a lot of potential as a scoring big guy but cracking the Rockets' rotation will be a challenge in itself.

Well, Chuck is a free agent, and Hill kinda sucks so it might not be that hard.

C - Hill/Motiejunas/Thabeet
PF - Scola/Patterson
SF - Morris/Budinger/Parsons

I figure he could get away with playing the center position now that it's all but dead. But, even if Hayes is re-signed, I could still see Motiejunas getting minutes at center or power forward because Hayes played center last year. Jordan Hill and Thabeet need to improve A LOT.
