Hub flange possible source of spoke ping?

I am pretty new to cycling, and particularly to rebuilding wheels. 

I have a rear Giant P-A2 Aluminum Clincher 700c wheel that I re-laced but whilst relacing I noticed quite a bit of wear in the flange. Where it looks like spokes have worn towards the centre - with a few holes with slight play. 

Could hub flange wear make spokes ping?
