Maybe it was the Orlando Magic? If they do a S&T for Rashard they're going to have a lot of capspace even still.

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.

I think we both agree that Ferry is an idiot. It was a desperate signing to "show" LeBron that they were serious about winning. However, I don't think anyone expected Hughes to suck this much. Granted, his 20 PPG in Wash. were pretty empty and his defense has always been overrated. Were you expecting him to be this much of a disappointment, because I sure can say that I wasn't.

WTF 5/40 mill? Didn't they learn their lesson when they signed Brian Cardinal?

Shyt David Lee isn't even worth that.

I have to say I wasn't expecting such a low basketball IQ. Not so much with his defense, but with his offense. I KNEW his percentage was extremely low but I never could figure out why because I never really saw him play in Washington or Philly, or G.S.

I figured it out almost immediately after he joined the Cavs. He has the worst shot selection of any starting shooting guard in the league I think. And he isn't afraid to shoot. Bad combination. If he drove to the hoop more, he'd be a much better player.

Oh my god, the Chris Wallace curse strikes again. He messed up the Celts while he was in charge, now its the Grizzlies turn.
