Default My thoughts on the guys we traded

Larry Hughes--This was just one of those things that was just doomed from the start. It was the Summer of 05, the Cavs were desperate for a SG, and Ray Allen/Michael Redd were no longer on the market. Mgt. felt like we needed a "name player." That's why Hughes was signed. He left behind a perfect system for him in Washington. Him and LeBron were never gonna mesh. Larry was a very poor man's LeBron. Also was out of position at the PG spot. Injuries also plagued his run with us, and he had to deal with the loss of his brother. To his credit, he never whined or complained about anything.

Ira Newble--Always loved his defensive effort, and he could get hot from behind the arc. Mike Brown never gave him a fair chance to crack the rotation. Newble never complained. Just gave a workmanlike effort out there. I will prob. miss him the most.

Drew Gooden--For the first season, looked like an adequate replacement for Boozer. He is a nice effort player who can rebound and score some points, but is extremely inconsistent, turnover prone, and makes a lot of boneheaded mistakes. His tech. foul against Detroit in game 6 last year could've come back to haunt us. Gooden is as good as he's ever gonna be. He has added nothing to his game. Will give Chicago 15/9, and will probably be a starter/6th man for several years to come.

Cedric Simmons--Never got a chance with us. Even in Andy's absence, Brown never got him involved in the rotation.

Shannon Brown-Good athlete, decent outside shooter, and athletic, but has a lot to learn. Brown never gave him a chance. Hopefully, Chicago, who has been struggling all season and has nothing to lose by playing him, will find a spot for him in the rotation.

I pretty much agree with you. I thought Gooden was the most important player we gave up, in which he probably was in terms of playing time and involvement with the team. But I guess I'll just have to see how it turns out with Wallace/West/Wally/Smith for me to know if I like what happened or not. I like Wally, if he can stay healthy. I'll like Wallace if he can give us 5/10/defense+heart every game. Hopefully they don't keep Varejo and Wallace on the floor at the same time too much...they'll have almost no offense in the post with that. So hopefully they'll put Smith in there or Varejo in there at the right times.

Wally's home btw, graduated from Miami (Ohio) - even though it's near Cincinnati, watched him play a couple games back in the day when he was averaging 24ppg.

One thing about this trade: I'm VERY happy for Shannon Brown. I wish he could've blossomed with us but it was very obvious that Mike Brown was never going to let him grow as a player. Once i realized that me and my roommates were actually hoping for Shannon to get traded so he could finally go to a coach that would let him develop. Watch i guarantee you that within the next few years Shannon will be one of those ex-Cavs players that have people going "why the hell did we let him go?"
