The Washington Wizards have dealt 30-year old guard Kirk Hinrich and 26-year old center Hilton Armstrong to the Hawks for 32-year old point guard Mike Bibby, 32-year old SG/SF Maurice Evans, 22-year old guard Jordan Crawford and a 1st round pick. Mike Bibby is starting to slow down but he will likely back up John Wall the rest of this season. Bibby has played in 56 games (all starts) for the Hawks this season and he averaged 29.9 minutes, 9.4 points, 2.6 rebounds and 3.6 assists on 44.1% shooting from 3-point range. Bibby has now played in 938 games (934 starts) in his NBA career and he is averaging 35.0 minutes, 15.4 points, 3.2 rebounds, 5.7 assists and 1.2 steals per game. Maurice Evans is a veteran who could give the Wizards solid minutes off the bench. Evans played in 47 games (12 starts) for the Hawks this season and he was averaging 17.8 minutes, 4.5 points, 1.8 rebounds and 0.6 assists per game. He has now played in 51 games (111 starts) in his NBA career so far and he is averaging 19.3 minutes, 6.6 points, 2.5 rebounds and 0.8 assists per game. Jordan Crawford was the Hawks’ first round pick this season but he was buried on the bench. He played in 16 games (0 starts) for the Hawks this season and he averaged 10.0 minutes, 4.2 points, 1.8 rebounds and 0.9 assists per game on only 35.1% shooting from the floor. Crawford has a nice upside.
Kirk Hinrich played in 48 games (29 starts) for the Wizards this season and he averaged 30.6 minutes, 11.1 points, 2.7 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.2 steals per game. Hinrich was the #3 guard for the Wizards but he will start at point guard for the Hawks. Hilton Armstron played in 41 games (2 starts) for the Wizards this season and he averaged 10.0 minutes, 1.9 points, 2.8 rebounds and 0.2 assists per game.
I think this was a outstanding deal for the Wizards as they essentially got two first round picks for Kirk Hinrich.
