Default Ferry's best: Flipping Hughes for West or acquiring Mo for Damon Jones?

Both moves in combination have solidified the Cavs backcourt for the next five years.

But which was more impressive to you? Take into account the totality of the circumstances as well.

Two brilliant moves that I have a hard time choosing.

Both moves were solid.

Slight edge to Mo Williams.

I say the Mo/D Jones deal...Because you got rid of a D- Talent..basically for a B+ talent...Mo Williams is the real deal truth and nothin but it..

Basically, compare each player who was basically dealt with eachother and find the seperation in talent....

West is a C+ and Hughes is a C-

Mo is a B+ and Jones is a D-

So, hats off to the Mo Will Deal, it was definitly better...IMO.

(Wow, 1000th Post Already...Too many ISH arguments I guess...lol)

Mo Williams deal certainly is better. Technically the Larry Hughes deal was for Ben Wallace.

Can someone explain why Bucks gave away Mo Williams? Was it for money reasons? That's the only reason that makes sense.....

i gotta go with the 3 team trade that brought the Cavs Joe Smith, Wally, Big Ben, and D-West. Roster overhaul.

Getting Mo Williams was huge. But Ferry best move would be locking down Lebron James like Delonte West supposedly does scorers.

They were going nowhere with him, and he's signed until 2012 or something like that. And it was clear the Redd/Mo backcourt was not working.

And they were not pleased with his defense.

The Mo Williams trade was great, but it's easy. The 3-team trade looked like a clusterf&ck at the time, they traded two starters but still came out way ahead. That's a lot more impressive.

He and Michael Redd were feuding, they had sophomore PG Ramon Sessions.

Have you not seen what Delonte has done this series to Joe Johnson? He hasn't locked him down, but he is certainly not the same player he was playing against DWade last series.

I'm unsure what your post has to do with mine.

I say the Mo for Damon deal for two reason:

1)Damon Jones didnt really contribute anything but 3's

2)I think if we wouldve kept Hughes he woulda played better. I think he's more of an off-the-ball type player than a person that you give the ball to and try to force him to score. If we had a legit PG -like Mo Williams- and gave him the Delonte role he'd probably be a decent player right now .........or not
