What I am most dissappointed is his poor shot selection and career shooting percentage. He also frequently fails to finish when going to the basket. Wasted oppurtunities can kill a team. His trading value can only go down with the development of Brown. Of course, Brown is not yet ready for a starting role with the team. Perhaps in mid-season we might get someone for him. (Hughes)
I still wish we could get a young backup Center like Ellson.
Yea i think hughes has a very bad shot selection...his stats are kind of deceiving because he takes too many shots...i think the cavs felt like they needed to make a big sign to please lebron so they signed hughes even though he isnt a player that complements bron as much as a pure shooter in ray allen and michael redd would...i really thought redd would sign with them and i think he would be great with lebron....but i really think hughes is overrated...hes a solid combo guard but he has been injure prone his whole career and hes not a staedy scorer...shannon brown will eventually take his spot...i think its a steal for the cavs to have gotten him
