Hawks Free Agency Rumors: Lakers, Jazz Among Teams Interested In Kirk Hinrich

Atlanta Hawks free agent guard Kirk Hinrich is expected to have a list of suitors including the Lakers and the Jazz which makes a return to the Atlanta Hawks unlikely.

If Hinrich were to return to Atlanta it would have to come at a deeply discounted price. He is the lone free agent that the Hawks have that made more than the league minimum last season and figures to get a decent offer somewhere else despite struggling last season.

The Lakers have long been rumored to have interest in Hinrich and his ability to play and defend both backcourt spots makes him a valuable commodity to a team.
