If you look at the situation, look hard at the numbers, it didn't really make sense. It was just optimism on the part of the Cleveland crowd again.

I mean first off, you don't offer that kind of money to your third choice. It's common knowledge we were after Joe Johnson before Hughes, and weren't we after Redd? Or Allen? I forget which.

Second off, the guy never played a full 82 game season and is a career 40% shooter.

Stupid signing.
