Hughes, who never formally announced his retirement, wishes his NBA career had ended in more dignified fashion. But, he says, he was warned. “It all goes back to the Players Association,” he says. “They come in every year and visit the locker room and talk about preparing you for the end of basketball. Some years when you are making good money you ask your coach, ‘Do I have to sit in on this if I’ve heard it all before?’ But the message is a good one.”

During a Philadelphia radio interview with 97.5 The Fanatic on Wednesday, Brown remembered on the Morning Show that the 76ers actually ranked Pierce as the No. 2 prospect in 1998. After the forward fell on draft night, he was still available when the 76ers made their selection. But Brown, Philadelphia’s coach at the time, wanted to keep his word. “We took Larry Hughes because (with the eighth pick) because we thought we had a need,” he said. “But the reason we took Larry is I promised him when we interviewed him — we knew we were getting the eighth pick — I promised him if he was there at (No.) 8 we would take him.”
Former Knicks player Larry Hughes was walked out of the Trump SoHo hotel in handcuffs Friday after a night of partying at the club Greenhouse. Police knocked on Hughes’ door at the luxury building around noon, and he agreed to go with them to be interviewed about an earlier incident, sources said. As Hughes, 35, walked out of the hotel he told a Post reporter, “It wasn’t me.” Hughes – who is six-foot-five and was listed as 184 pounds when he played – was the 8th pick in the 1998 NBA Draft and was traded to the Knicks for the 2009-2010 season before finishing his career with the Orlando Magic in 2011-2012.
