According to Hoopshype Larry Hughes is deciding between the Heat, Lakers, Bobcats, and Celtics. The 31 year old Hughes is no one to write home about, but he wouldn't be a bad addition. I'd much prefer him as our 4th wing to 3rd, but Hughes gives you a slashing game and decent defense. He used to have a poor jumper, but if you check the stats he's made himself into a solid 3 point marksman. Hughes is actually the wing addition I preferred over Michael Finley last Spring for the simple fact that I thought he still had more game left in him based on age. Wings I'd prefer over Hughes include Marvin Williams, Rudy Fernandez, Josh Howard, and Rasual Butler. Probably a few more, but those off the top of my head. The loss of Tony Allen has left a big void no doubt.

  1. Wouldn't be a bad signing but he's guaranteed to be injured at least half the season. I wish we had gotten Matt Barnes even though he's such a prick.

    Lol TB. That whole pic is hysterical.

    The Celtics already had strong interest in signing Hughes back in March:


    I hope we get something done this week, the quest for a SF is tougher and harder each day...

    Celtics are also interested in Tim Perry, Andrew Lang, and Hersey Hawkins.
