2012 NBA Free Agency: Kirk Hinrich Top Target For Chicago Bulls

Atlanta Hawks free agent guard Kirk Hinrich is drawing interest from several teams and is reportedly the top target of the Chicago Bulls.

Hinrich was drafted by the Bulls in 2003 and played for the team until 2010. He has played the last season and a half with the Hawks since being acquired in a trade for Jordan Crawford, Mike Bibby, Maurice Evans and Atlanta's 2011 first round pick. He had previously expressed interest in remaining with Atlanta but that was before Danny Ferry took over as general manager.

Hinrich averaged 6.6 points and 2.8 assists in 48 games for Atlanta in 2012. He missed the start of the season because of a shoulder injury that was suffered while working out during the lockout.
