Portland to aquire Hinrich?
 
There is a rumour i saw on RealGM blog sight that the Portland Trail Blazers are in talks with the Bulls to bring Kirk Hinrich/Cedrick Simmons to Portland for Raef Lafrentz/Sergio Rodriguez.

Interesting trade, doesn't Hinrich's current contract end in 2010?If so Portland is really setting itself up for a great future.

hinrich?? ughhh.
but then i se they're getting rid of LaFrentz who's even more ughhhh. so its a great move for them if they can do it.

I'm not a Hinrich fan either but maybe a change of scenery gets him back to what he was a few years ago, which was a decent player.

Hinrich is a solid player. Too bad he's out for 3 months though so I don't see this deal going through right now.

LaFrentz HAS to be an expiring deal and Sergio is a real nice piece to add. Hinrich is somewhat redundant with Blake there already.

whenever there is a a rumour and its associated with Real GM I really wish the poster of the thread would put REAL GM in front of it.

Reason why I say this is because Real GM should be short form for REAL BS.

I could throw raw linguine against the fridge too and eventually it would stick

This would be the absolute perfect trade for Hinrich.

Hinrich really isnt a do it all type PG, having the ability to play off the ball AND play some pg with about 10 good players around him will only take the pressure off him and he'll return to the form that made him known around the league.

His FG% and assists can only go up especially playing with the talent Portland has, and itll only make them that much better defensively since Hinrich is very solid even at guarding the 2's.

This trade would set them up to be a contender next year if Oden keeps showing the promise he has from the last 2 games. Hes come back from the injury strong.
