CAVS TALKING TRADE?The Cavs and Knicks recently had serious trade discussions centered around Cavs guard Larry Hughes, team sources on both sides confirmed last week. One scenario included a package that would have sent Knicks swingman Quentin Richardson to the Cavs, another involved guard Jamal Crawford. Apparently, those talks are dead (for now).One thing's for certain -- all those leg injuries have robbed Hughes of his explosiveness. Instead of erupting to the basket with a burst of athleticism, Hughes often settles for mid-range (or even long-range) jump shots. Fortunately for the Cavs, he seems to be getting better in that area. That's especially true in the last two games, when he's combined for 13-of-26 shooting from the field (including 5-of-9 on 3-pointers).Also, Hughes has been a big reason for the Cavs' resurgence on defense. He's still fairly athletic and never backs down from guarding the opposing team's best backcourt player.A lot of people continue to link Sacramento point guard Mike Bibby to the Cavs -- and while they do need a point guard, they don't necessarily need Bibby. They just need someone who can penetrate and dish and hit the occasional perimeter shot. Someone like Luke Ridnour (Seattle) or Tyronn Lue (Atlanta) or Beno Udrih (Sacramento) would suffice. As an added bonus, the Cavs wouldn't have to gut the rotation to get a guy like any of those three.
