Larry Hughes got traded from New York to California, but he is not heading West anytime soon.
Hughes had been out with a big toe injury and now has a fractured finger, but he is not going Kobe and trying to play through it. Rather he is staying on the East Coast to rehab and will not be joining the Kings.
Kings beat writer Jason Jones says he doubts Hughes will ever play a game for Sacramento. That’s fine, nobody in Sacramento will notice. They really only wanted Carl Landry, who should suit up Saturday when the Kings play the Clippers.
