NBA teams travel approximately 60,000 miles in a season, constantly interrupting circadian rhythms, and over the past few years training staffs have searched for ways to educate themselves and their players about sleep.

Certain strength coaches conduct surveys every morning, asking guys how many hours they slept and how soundly. But a lot of the information is unreliable.

He wants to participate in a sleep study at UCLA.
