Larry Hughes: Something Has to Change


"I don’t want to play like this," Hughes said. "I’m not comfortable with 15-20 minutes. Something has to change."

It did, albeit temporarily. But Derrick Rose is the No. 1 overall pick, Ben Gordon is the team’s leading scorer and Kirk Hinrich, currently injured, is the best perimeter defender.

"You have to understand that situation and I do," Hughes said. "We have a lot of guys at one position. Somebody has to come off the bench and you accept that role. But I’m not expecting 15-20 minutes, and I don’t want to deal with that."
