chicago moves hinrich to the wiz, clears more cap space to sign two max players

Sources: Chicago Bulls to send Kirk Hinrich, No. 17 to Washington Wizards - ESPN

Quote:
The Chicago Bulls have a deal in place that would move Kirk Hinrich and the 17th pick to the Washington Wizards, freeing up enough cap space to pursue two maximum-salary players on this summer's free-agent market, sources with knowledge of the Bulls' plans said Thursday.

It wasn't immediately clear what Washington would send to Chicago in the trade.

The deal can't be officially consummated until July 8, when the Wizards will have room under the salary cap to absorb Hinrich's $9 million contract without having to send back anything of similar value.

Since it's a good-faith deal for the time being, there remains a chance it could fall apart. But according to one source, the Sacramento Kings are prepared to make a similar deal with the Bulls in the Wizards' stead if that were to happen.

Either way, moving Hinrich and the pick would push Chicago's space under the cap from $20 million to more than $30 million. That puts the Bulls on equal footing with the Miami Heat in pursuing not just one but two members of a free-agent class that is expected to include LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Carlos Boozer, Amare Stoudemire and Joe Johnson.

i was really hoping that he would be a raptor if Bosh were to leave for chicago. i really hope both miami and chicago end up shooting themselves in the foot and end up with odom and mercer like signings again.

So the Wizards get Hinrich and are signing Childress. They might not be too bad next season.

Another PG for Washington? Wall, Arenas and Hinrich. It was bad enough with just Wall and Arenas. Probably Wall would slide over, no?

Hinrich can play SG. That is where he played with the Bulls with Rose at PG.

Sadly, if this happens, Toronto is in some pretty bad shape to keep Bosh. Wade and Lebron would take Bosh as a second before each other if they were smart.

Rose Bosh and Wade sounds badass. If Noah is there.... damn good. And since Chicago is considered an amazing city to be in.... Toronto can't even claim to be a better place to live.

I would take Evan Turner because all the analysts are saying that Turner is more NBA ready. Turner is now my favorite player + i have only seen highlights of him, I think he is just going to be awesome.

And i also think that he will win ROTY I think he will just be like Brandon Roy in terms of Basketball IQ + Ability.

Cant wait to have him in my Backourt with Derozan + Weems come October!

Turner!

How can Hinrich be unloaded and we can't unload hedo or calderon?

Shouldn't this move make Arenas expendable? I would like BC to go after Arenas and his toxic contract for the shear fact that he is better than everyone one our team with the exception of bargnani. Now that Bosh will likely walk without a S&T, we need another player who can lead us to the playoffs. Bargnani, Hedo, Jose, etc cannot do that. (IF) healthy and not stupid, Arenas can do that.

^ Why aren't you banned yet? Oh wait you just signed up

I think they'll end up with two of them now with all this cap space.

Rose and either wade or Lebron wont work. not enough ball to go around.

That team would be better suited with guy at the sg spot that doesnt need the ball as much to be effective.

John Paxson seems to disagree. I agree though, they need the ball in their hands, but GM's keep thinking that ball handling players can play well off the ball (i.e. Hedo in Toronto.)
