Haywood scores 12 in Rookie Challenge

Brendan Haywood scored 12 points (5-6 FG) and blocked two shots in yesterday's Rookie Challenge at NBA All-Star Weekend.

"He's quite a gem that they picked up," Rookies head coach Chuck Daly told the Washington Post. "He's one of those workhorse guys. . . . He's not going to show you a lot of flashes, but he's one of those players who you have to have if you're going to win basketball games – guys who don't need the ball who are real workhorses."
