It was a horrible signing then, and it's a pathetically horrible signing now.
Lebron needs to be surrounded by shooters and atheletic bigmen. The Cavs aren't building properly.
The really horrible moves last offseason were signing Z and bringing in Damon Jones. Like I said, with a PG that can actually be a threat from outside, I think LH could still work. Z and Jones make entirely too much money... especially Z. He will never fit with this team. I wish we could find someone who wants him.
Claxton and Lue are similar players - small and quick. Jones fills the need for a bigger guard, and a better shooter. Plus Jones can play some minutes at shooting guard as well, which adds some depth to the Hawks roster.
Snow is the halfcourt point guard for Cleveland, but they don't have a guy who can come in off the bench and push the tempo. Lue can do that for Cleveland.
The only problem is the judge's ruling on no contracts being traded to the Hawks until the ownership issue is resolved.
Both have similar salaries.
Id be cool with the lue for jones trade. I think that would be awesome but yeah who knows. Jones really isn't getting paid like that much. 4 mil a year. overpriced but its not like terrible.
By the way .. they dont play better w/o hughes. they play better w/o an unhealthy hughes. U guys just watch hell be awesome next season.
