Chuck Hayes made money

Doctors told Chuck Hayes yesterday that he is cleared to return to basketball. The head of cardiovascular medicine at the world renowed Cleveland Clinic ran extensive tests on Hayes and determined that the former Cat doesn’t have any heart issues and he’s good to go.

That was great news, but the news got even better today when Chuck rejoined the Sacramento Kings by signing a four-year deal. The best part of the deal? Chuck’s new contract is worth more than the one that was just voided. Hayes signed a $22.4 million deal this time around, $1.1 million more than the previous contract.

Chuck’s new team kicks off the season on Monday against Golden State.

It’s good to know he’s healthy and even better to see him make money off the failed physical.

    Maybe Chuckwagon and Boogie can have a trade off of talents. Chuck learns how to dougie and boogie can learn how to play hard for the whole game.

    $1.1 million for mental anguish.

    Chuck must have one heck of an agent to GAIN money after this! I was expecting him to get a ~$1mil cut in pay “just in case.”

    Chuck has far exceeded draft expectations? I mean for crying out loud, starting center in the NBA at 6’6″? He is a great ‘cat, but give it up for what he has accomplished in the NBA! Love you Chuck, and I hope you continue improving in Sac-town.
