Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports suggests on Twitter that the Celtics, who have expressed interest in Blazers guard Rudy Fernandez, might take a look at Larry Hughes. Spears tweets that Hughes is “looking good in workouts.”
Hughes is a journeyman at this point in his career, having played for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Chicago Bulls, New York Knicks and Charlotte Bobcats since 2007. Known as a scorer coming into the league, his shooting percentages have trended towards the abysmal in recent years but he can still get buckets without needing huge minutes.
Ultimately, Hughes represents a low-risk/low-reward type signing for the Celtics.
