King: We Had A T-Mac For Hughes Trade With Toronto
 
Don't know where this talk came about, but former 76ers GM and now ESPN NBA analyst Billy King talks about a deal that he had in place with us back in the day. Apparently we got cold feet. :(

The Sixers would have sent Larry Hughes to Toronto for Tracy McGrady and a first round pick.

Stephen A. Smith broke the trade and the Raptors ended up getting cold feet and the deal fell through.

If he wasn't so injury prone, then Hughes would be been a damn good player. Probably one of the best defensive players in years. But unfortunately he's fragile and breaks easily. :(

Grunwald traded it to Detroit for JYD and Eric Montross.
