Chuck Hayes will join the Raptors after being included in Sunday's seven-player swap involving Rudy Gay.
The veteran PF/C may carve out a spot in the frontcourt rotation, but there are no guarantees. The Raptors are more interested in clearing cap space and securing a lottery pick for the stacked 2014 draft class, so Hayes' season outlook doesn't improve with the move.
