To return in better shape, Hayes tried different activities (Bikram hot yoga, bike riding, tennis, swimming) before returning to the court. Hayes said he’s continuing to work to get be in optimal shape for the season.

“I think Chuck has put the work in and now he’s in better shape,” Smart said. “He had a dunk the other night so he’s moving up.”

Hayes (6-6, 250) wasn’t getting near the rim much at all last season. But he looks lighter on his feet and his moving much better on the court in camp.
