Default 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.

I remember that time and the rumors were rampant that this trade was inevitable. Hell, I remember having a man crush on Hughes lol thinking he would be this outstanding player. Boy, was I wrong...

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.
