Wow – what a Christmas present for the former Rocket and shortly signed King.
It’s been reported that Chuck Hayes has been medically cleared to resume playing after no heart condition was found, this per Wojo:
Agent for Chuck Hayes issues statement saying doctors at the Cleveland Clinic examined Hayes and say, “..He does not have a heart problem.”
Hayes met with doctors at clinic, and “their recommendation is that the can continue to play professional basketball without any concerns.”
For Hayes, who’s one of the classiest guys in the league, I couldn’t be more thrilled. For the Kings, well, speechless would be a great way to put it. I’m not sure how they came to the medical conclusion that they did, and it was obviously on good intentions but this is a pretty, uh, unique situation to say the least.
From a basketball standpoint, why you’d hope Hayes would be open to a King return, given the change in the market the past ten days since this situation took light (Dalembert in Houston, Humprhies in New Jersey), it would seem that Hayes’ demand would be at an all time high.
Pony up the greenbacks, guys. Get Hayes back in black.
