The best news to come out of Sunday's debacle is that the Cavs are seeking to
trade Larry Hughes, according to league sources. Sure, Hughes has struggled
offensively and he has spent most of his time injured as a member of the Cavs, but
what makes this possible move a good one is the Cavs are in need of a few
changes. A shake-up is in store. Let's hope Damon Jones is also on that list to get
traded because he is rotting so bad on the bench that he didn't even get any
time despite how bad the Cavs played against the Golden State Warriors. Right
now, this team is inconsistent on defense and offense and a move to bring some
new life onto this team could be the best thing to turn this season
around. If this roster remains the same after the trade deadline in February,
don't make any reservations for a long run in the postseason.

CAVALIERS INSIDER

Hughes reportedly being shopped

Larry Hughes' time with the Cavaliers might be just about over. According to several league sources, the Cavs have contacted several teams about a deal involving the 6-5 guard.

One source said the Washington Wizards are one of those teams and another source said another team is in the Atlantic Division.

Hughes spent three years with the Wizards before signing a free-agent deal with the Cavs in 2005 worth between $65 million and $70 million.

The trade deadline is Feb. 21.

"Hughes will be gone way before then," said one source, who did not want to be identified.

The relationship between the Cavs and Hughes has not gone well. Hughes was GM Danny Ferry's biggest signing, but Hughes' two-plus seasons have been riddled with injuries. When healthy, Hughes has not been comfortable in the Cavs' offense, which takes away from his strength as a slasher. He's instead asked to take outside shots, which is not one of his strengths.

Last season, Hughes was moved out of position to point guard. This year, at his insistence, he was moved back to shooting guard but now comes off the bench. He is shooting a career-low 33.8 percent from the field.



*+*! THAT BUM

Ferry should be gone too for creating this mess.

I remember a few years ago, there was some dude on NT who was trying to convince anyone who would listen that Larry Hughes was better than Paul Pierce. At first I thought he was being sarcastic, but he was pretty serious. I gotta assume that had to be one of Larry Hughes' relatives.

Anyways, you're right. Larry Hughes is a bum. An overpaid bum. Probably the 2nd dumbest contract I've ever seen since Allan Houston's remarkable $100 million deal with the Knicks.

That bum is right.

But if he can make it back to Washington, he might be of use.

Good riddance, I'm sick of having to watch him "take over" when Lebron is on the bench, and clank more mid-range jumpers than ANYONE in the NBA. This guy will do everything right, make the right move, go the right direction, cross over perfectly, then either clank a jumper or miss a layup looking for a foul..... and I'm a Pistons fan, so it benefits me, and I STILL cant stand it...

good, he sucks, move on .. next thread

Washington doesn't want that bum back, one of the reasons he left is because the Wizards didn't think he was worth that money. It turns out they were right. No one is taking that contract on.

A swap of bad contracts is about all you'll get for him...There's not a team in the league that will give up any type of value. Maybe the Knicks, but you've gotta think even Isiah Thomas gets tired of taking on several players with terrible contracts and the exact same skillset at some point.

Sadly, I don't think it really phases him.

Way too inconsistent and injury prone...

His contract sucks. He doesn't seem to carry intensity. He looks like he's more concerned with his next tattoo than working on his game or staying healthy.

He's not a solid, reliable #2. Big Z is clearly the #2 for Cleveland...and that won't be enough. I used to like LH and his mid-range game but he never cracked into his potential.

to Miami for Smush Parker? laugh.gif yes i know the contracts don't match.
post #19 of 70
I don't even think I'd want him on the Rockets..
post #20 of 70
Get him on a running team and he'll be fine. He needs the ball and Bron aint giving it up. It's not like he just forgot how to play.
post #21 of 70
NOBODY is taking his contract.

The Atlantic team mentioned has to be the Heat...does Ricky Davis have a 90day wait period before he can be traded again?

Running team like the Suns or the Nuggets? Don't send him the Warriors way. I don't want him on our squad. And this is coming from a fan of Hughes when he was a Warrior. ohwell.gif

Straight up for Smush Parker?

With the crudentials that Smush has (heavy sarcasm) he can be the backup PG that the Cavs need.
