The first and only time we got to see Chuck Hayes in a Sacramento Kings uniform was last week at media day. He had this to say about being courted by several different teams during his free agency.
It was flattering. I didn’t realize all these other teams were interested in me. I didn’t realize they watched me play and they valued the way I play. So it was flattering, but it was a little more stressful than people think.
It should be easy. But to make a decision to change your address and change your lifestyle as far as where you live and relocating to a whole different city and environment, it makes you realize that these are decisions that are going to influence the rest of your life. So I prayed about it, I did my research and Sacramento is where I wanted to be.
