Celtics a finalist for SG Hughes
By: DJ Bean

Bill Ingram of Hoops World has tweeted that free agent shooting guard Larry Hughes has narrowed his list of teams down to the Lakers, Heat, Celtics and Bobcats. Hughes finished the 2009-10 season with Charlotte.

 

The eighth overall pick in the 1998 NBA draft, Hughes has played for the 76ers, Warriors, Wizards, Cavaliers, Bulls, Knicks and Bobcats over his 12-year career. He has averaged 14.2 points, 3.2 assists and 4.2 rebounds.

 

Hughes would seemingly fill the void that was created when Tony Allen departed for Memphis earlier this month.
