Heart exam shows abnormality for Kings' Hayes


Posted Dec 15 2011 10:25PM

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- A recent heart exam on new Sacramento Kings big man Chuck Hayes shows an abnormality that will require further testing.

The Kings announced Thursday night that a stress echocardiogram revealed the abnormality. The former Houston Rockets forward-center signed a $21.3 million, four-year deal with the Kings last week.

Hayes averaged 3.4 points and 4.7 rebounds in 17 minutes per game in six seasons with the Rockets. He attended Sacramento's media day earlier Thursday and appeared fine, joking around with several teammates.

The Kings open the preseason Saturday night at the Golden State Warriors. The Los Angeles Lakers visit Sacramento for the regular-season opener Dec. 26.
