Terry Pluto loves the move.
and Bud Shaw is sold as well.
Personally, I'm not thrilled with the move, but I don't really have a problem with it. I still would've rather had the Cavs make the Suns match an offer we made to Joe Johnson. Make them take on a ton of money.
But I don't know Hughes's (Hughes'?) time table. The Cavs could've offered Johnson a contract and Phoenix could've taken their time matching it. By the time they did, both Hughes and Johnson could've been off the market and the Cavs would've signed no one.
I don't know, this could work out great, I just don't have a good feeling when ESPN.com's headline for the move is "Cavs settle on Hughes." Your big free agent move is considered settling... great... Hooray Cleveland!
