SHARE Bulls to inactivate Hughes starting today, trade still in works

The Bulls will put Larry Hughes on the inactive list beginning with the game tonight at Houston. The Bulls have been trying to trade Hughes, who has not played over the last 10 games, since Kirk Hinrich returned to the lineup Jan. 14. Hughes has said he would welcome a trade. His current contract runs through next season. He makes $12.8 million this season and $13.65 million next season. Players can be moved on and off the inactive list on a game-to-game basis. But barring injury, it is unlikely Hughes would be activated before the Feb. 19 trade deadline, if at all this season.
