Kirk Hinrich Trade Rumors: Hawks Guard "Could Be On The Move"

According to CBSSports.com's Ken Berger, the Atlanta Hawks could be looking to find a buyer for guard Kirk Hinrich, and one possible destination could be the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Hawks won't find a taker for Joe Johnson and the $90 million he has coming to him over the next four years, but rival executives believe Kirk Hinrich could be on the move -- perhaps filling the gaping two-guard hole on the Clippers. That depends on the asking price, as the Clips' assets were diminished in the Chris Paul trade. Execs are torn on what strategy Atlanta ownership will pursue after the sale of the team fell through in November. With a healthy Al Horford, the Hawks almost certainly would be the third-best team in the East. But at some point down the road, a league source said, ownership may "keep Horford and try to dump the rest."

This is not the first time that trade rumors have swirled around Hinrich and the Clippers aren't the first potential buyer. Hinrich, a 10-year veteran, is averaging five points per game in his first and likely only year with the Hawks, but his career average is 12.8 points per game. If a team like the Clippers, who could use some help at guard, is interested, Hinrich could find himself part of another trade.
