   Top 101 NBA Ten-Day Contract Candidates (When 20 Would Probably Have Been Enough)

Larry Hughes - The Bobcats had Hughes last season, but in 14 games for the team, he put up career lows in PER (11.1) and true shooting percentage (.467). As has always been the case, Larry bases his game around a jumpshot that he just doesn't have, and with his 32nd birthday in a couple of weeks, it doesn't look like things will change. Despite his flaws, Hughes is better than some players currently in the NBA, and is good enough to get back into it. Memphis were sniffing around recently. But with Larry Brown ousted in Charlotte, he's running out of supporters.

   The best of what's left after what was the best of what's left has gone and is no longer left

- Larry Hughes * - Hughes wants to return to the Bobcats, but that's not the same thing as the Bobcats wanting him to return. The Celtics were said to be interested in him, but they may have saved their own bacon by running out of roster spots. There's no reason for any team to have both Larry Hughes and Q6.

   The best of what's left

Larry Hughes - Larry Hughes played for the Knicks and Bobcats last year, while Sacramento decided it was best to pay him not to play for them. Sacramento were right; in 45 games and 1,115 minutes between New York and Charlotte, the always inefficient Hughes set new lows by shooting .355% from the field with a career low PER of 11.1. If anyone out there is still making excuses for him, I fail to see how. He made a contract year push, and it came off. Now, 31 years old and losing the athleticism, he's done. That's just how it is.

   The Finances Of The Trade Deadline Deals

[...] Drew Gooden and Larry Hughes also managed to achieve the dubious honour of being traded at three consecutive trade deadlines, with Gooden compounding his misery by compiling four trades in that time. It also seems reasonably inevitable that Gooden will be bought out by his new team (the L.A. Clippers), making him possibly the first player ever to be salary dumped at the deadline, only to be bought out and sign with a contender, in consecutive seasons. Congratulations, I think.
