Bittersweet Change for Drew Gooden

Gooden played a major role in his 3 years with the Cavaliers and fans will miss him. He was part of the big blockbuster deal that sent him to the Bulls. Leaving Cleveland was not easy for Gooden, “They said they needed a change; so be it,” said Gooden in an interview in Chicago.

“If this was the best change for the Cavaliers, we’ll see what happens. They gave up some talent and they received some talent. We’ll see what happens in the long run.”

On the other hand, Hughes sounded happy to leave the Cavaliers, “I was happy,” he said, when he found out about the trade. It was no secret that my style of play didn’t really fit the system in which (they) were playing in. I felt I could be more productive.

“There wasn’t as much ball movement, as much player movement as I was used to. There was a lot of space the court and pretty much wait. That’s just not how I like to play basketball.”
