Reviews good on Hughes signing

The reviews are coming in and not surprisingly, they are very good. Terry Pluto loves the move. Hughes was his first choice OVER Redd and Allen because he’s the best all around player of the three, with his excellent defense, rebounding skills and ballhandling ability. Yes, he’s not a great three-point shooter, but Pluto correctly points out that the Cavs have many needs, and a complete player is much better for the long-term development of this team. He also notes Hughes’s attitude, noting:

“Some fans need to understand that Hughes is not fixated on being the star. Coming from Washington, he played with Gilbert Arenas and Antawn Jamison — both used to shooting a lot.

Many times, Hughes was the third option in that offense, yet he still averaged 22 points. He still defended. He still rebounded. He still played the complete game.

Name a Cavalier who does all that?”

That pretty much sums it up. So far, so good for Danny Ferry and Dan Gilbert. They may have overpaid a little to get him as Bud Shaw points out, but they had the money and cap room and did what they had to do to land a very good player.
