NBA Free Agency: Kings Officially Re-Sign Chuck Hayes After Voiding Contract

The Sacramento Kings have officially re-signed Chuck Hayes after voiding his original contract after failing his physical with a heart condition. While Chuck's wellbeing was obviously at the forefront of everyone's mind, the subtraction of the physical forward from Sacramento's roster would hurt greatly. Fortunately for both parties involved, Hayes is now cleared to play and re-signed with the Kings for four years and $22.3 million dollars.

That's a million dollars more than Hayes originally signed for, but the organization decided it was worth it to give a little extra cash to compensate the 6'6 forward for his troubles. Can't be too argumentative with that.

In his brief time with the Kings, everyone around the franchise had nothing but great things to say of Hayes and his work ethic. Known to be a physical, aggressive player in the paint, Sacramento will really benefit from having a hard-nosed player to compliment DeMarcus Cousins in the starting lineup. The move also solidifies the front court, with Jason Thompson and J.J. Hickson in the mix, as well.

Welcome (back) to Sacramento, Chuck.
