If you think solely of the future, yes kevin has a ton of upside but so does hughes. Hughes is only 26/27, plays commendable D, and had that great yr in washngton. He was hurt a lot last year, so everyone is down on him right now. The kings need to make a move in the present because artest, bibby, shareef, and bmill are all closing in or have hit 30.
IMO Kevin needs to get a lot stronger/bigger (like to a TMac kinda body size) to be the future of a franchise, if he doesn't he will end up like Hughes-- an allmost allstar at best. Kevin is a good scorer, but he is fairly weak on D and he should rebound a bit better with all that athleticism but you can blame that on lack of strength and experience.
