Re: I found a solution to the Larry Hughes problem!!!!!!!
I think the solution is for him to be mired on the bench and for Thabo to develop into what Hughes was 5 years ago (without the injury problems). He also needs to stop shooting 3-pointers so often. He's under 30% for his career (though he has improved in recent years), and his overall shooting % goes up 25 points if you take the 3-pointers out of the equation. He attempted 2.5/game last season. I would like to see that number either go down, or his % go up. Gordon's numbers are better than his in every category except for steals, and I think their defensive effect is about equal.
So, the ultimate solution is to cut Hughes, take no cap hit, and sign Gordon to a 2-year deal for less money. Will never happen, but I like it.
