Redds PPG was only 1 point higher, yes he's more of a shooter, but Hughes averaged 2 more Steals a game, over 2 more assists, and over 2 rebounds more. Hughes looks 2 be more of a overall player, yes Redd can shoot the lights out, and LeBron needed someone like that. But don't say Hughes is a pushover, he was on the incline when he came to Cleveland. Would you give up on Amare Stoudamire now that he missed all of last year because of a bigger injury, knee, I don't think so.
We may have overpaid Hughes, but it's 2 early to tell. This year will be the defining year for the Cavs. I believe is Hughes was healthy all year the Cavs would have been pushing 7 games with the Heat in the ECFinals.
