Pick Analysis. Small Forward/Shooting Guard. 2007-2009. Larry Hughes. 1. player. Scouting Report. 24

By far the most productive player on this list that is often forgotten when discussed in the early years of D-Rose’s career is the ex-Washington Wizards and Golden State Warriors shooting guard/wing Larry Hughes. The St. Louis, MO, native and Saint Louis Billikens product was picked up by the Philadelphia 76ers with the eighth overall pick in the first round of the 1998 NBA Draft.

As part of a wild three-team trade in 2008 that also involved the Cavaliers and Seattle SuperSonics, the Bulls landed Hughes along with the likes of Cedric Simmons, Drew Gooden, and Shannon Brown. Hughes would play in 58 games over the course of two different seasons in the Windy City.

In those 58 games he played in a Bulls uniform, Hughes averaged 12.0 points per game, 3.1 rebounds, 2.5 assists, and 1.3 steals, while shooting 40 percent from the field and 37.6 percent from beyond the arc. Although he didn’t stick around long enough with the Bulls to make a playoff run alongside D-Rose.

All in all, Hughes would have a pretty accomplished NBA career considering that he finished as a journeyman at retirement. He played in 727 games throughout his entire career, while averaging 14.1 points per game, 4.2 rebounds, and 3.1 assists, while shooting 40.6 percent from the field and 30.9 percent from beyond the arc. He was also a member of the 2004-05 All-Defensive Team and was the 2004-05 Steals Champion.
