St. Louisan Larry Hughes was traded to the Sacramento Kings, as part of a seven-player NBA trade-deadline deal involving three teams today (Thurs., Feb. 18).
Hughes was part of the blockbuster deal which sent perennial All-Star guard Tracy McGrady from the Houston Rockets to the New York Knicks and young standout Kevin Martin from Sacramento to Houston. The move was made before the end of the NBA’s trade deadline, which was this afternoon at 3 p.m. (Eastern Time).
Sacramento becomes the seventh team that Hughes will play for during his 11-year NBA career. Hughes has also played for Philadelphia, Golden State, Washington, Cleveland, Chicago and New York.
