Would have seemed crazy to think any team would even consider taking on Hughes and his contract at the beginning of the year, but he has played pretty good this year. He has always had abundant talent, but finally looks like he is grasping the concept of basketball being a team game. And that has been on the Bulls, which barely even qualify as a team. I think a better team looking to add a piece could benefit from adding Hughes. Who cares what the Bulls get back as long as this groups gets disbanded as soon as possible.

Whatever, Paxson is horrible!!! Vinny Del Negro, horrible. Everyone you see on the roster from the coaches down, horrible. Except for Rose. Hughes should of been in that starting lineup when deng went down but Vinny decided to keep him benched, why because he doesn't know how to coach. I like Hughes but just like every other player they aren't given the opportunity because our organization is horrible. Sefolosha, Noah, Gray, Thomas, Gordon, Hinrich all horrible!!! Deng, borderline horrible. Nocioni well i think every team needs a player like that, a player who actually cares and plays with passion. This group together will never win. This team is full of role players but noone wants to accept their roles. Selfish horrible players, this is all Paxson's doing and he needs to be the first one gone!!! The one good solid basketball player hughes and they want to get rid of him, what a joke. lmfao!!!

The Cavs are doing pretty good without Hughes, but I was sad to see him traded away, especially for a guy like Wallace. I like Hughes.

Well...Yall can HAVE HIM!!!
PLEASE...Pretty PLEASE...Take him BACK.
I liked Hughes when he got here at first, but now You can see that his Shot selection is just BAD.
It Really Really is.
He's not really playing what you call Team Ball.
I know it it was said he was to start but, hey, when he DID start, he kept having these 2 fo 12 or 5 for Whatever crazy # of attempts a game and Gordon came off the bench like Hughes is doing now. Butinstead of whining and complaining, Gordon played Hared and was more effecient then Hughes, Thus, taking the Starting SG job.Now, Im not hating on Hughes, I wanted it to work out but it didn't.
Hughes would do better on aonther team that is in Dire need of a SG. And there are a Suprising number of teams that could use hughes, like the Knicks for example. They really could use an upgrade at SG and don't have a SG that can create his own shot. Q-Rich isn't rally producing like they need at his position so Hughes could fit there.

Larry's a big time baller who is playing well, he's good enough to be a starter or a very strong 6th man. I would hope they keep him, but at this point, it seems doubtful...Whatever team gets him will be lucky to have him

Hughes has a point, or lets put it this way, more points per minute than Bulls than start. More 3 pointers this year than Rose but only half the minutes? Better average also.
Always needs 30 plus minutes in his 10 plus career a couple times a week, Del Negro knows he is good, for he is always in the 3rd and all the 4th quarter. The only Bull that can play defense. Gorden and Rose can't play D.
How many year does Thabo get to develop? Damn, Noah a bust, Deng, zero team chemistry, Hughes knows the game, these other players are lost and will be all forgotten in 2 years except Rose.

I'm not sure the Bulls will be able to movie Larry Hughes before the trading deadline for a number of reasons. Most obviously is his contract for the remainder of this year and next. As ridiculous as this may sound, I would have kept Ben Wallace in Chicago over Gooden and Hughes. The reason being is the fact the Ben Wallace would have given us a better interior defensive presence and rebounding. Something which Noah and Tyrus Thomas lack. Granted Wallace was never an offensive minded but what our team lacks his defense and he would have been our best option.

"at least he will get playing time,these mofos was suppose to give him lots of playing time,but then they put him on the bench,hes a super star,and supers stars aint bench players"

Are you kidding me? Larry Hughes a super star is laughable. The guy is absolutly a selfish player who thinks every shot he takes is a good shot. Defensively, he gambles the passing lane which collapses the whole defense. The guy would have been gone by now but Danny Ferry gave such a big contract to him that nobody wants him.
