Larry Hughes Considering Boston


According to Bill Ingram’s twitter, Larry Hughes has narrowed his choices to the Lakers, Celtics, the Heat and the Bobcats (one of these things is not like the others).

Last season, Hughes split time between the Knicks and the Bobcats, averaging 9.1 points, 3 assists, 3.2 rebounds, and 1.2 steals a game. Hughes has never been a very efficient player on the offensive end and usually needs a bunch of shots to get his points. Last season he shot 35.5% from the field and 30.9% from downtown. Those are not percentages to really get excited about.

On top of that, Hughes hasn’t posted a PER above the league average of 15 since 2004-2005 when he played on Washington. On the defensive end, Hughes is average at best at this point in his career. Last, Hughes has had a hard time staying healthy over the years. For the veteran minimum and as bench fodder Hughes might be a decent addition. If Hughes was being brought in to fill the minutes that Marquis Daniels and Tony Allen played last season, then it would be a big disappointment.
