According to the new team President, David Kahn, Kirk Hinrich isn't in the plans for the Wolves dispelling the weak rumor reported previously.
When asked about rumored trades, he mentioned Kirk Hinrich whom he
described as a nice player who makes too much money. He said Hinrich is
not what the team is looking for offensively
Well this certainly doesn't come as a surprise. Did anyone really think the Bulls would get the #6 pick for Kirk Hinrich? I thought the rumor was too good to be true when the story first broke, and it appears that assessment was accurate.
Hinrich is still going to be moved. I've reported that before, and the evidence I've heard suggests that it's a certainty and, if anything, has strengthened as I've heard more bits and pieces of it. The only question will be what do we try to get back for Kirk. I view the answer as follows:
Plan A: Package him with other assets to get a stud Forward; Chris Bosh, Amare Stoudemire, etc..
Plan B: Send him off for salary relief / draft picks. Use the remaining space to resign Ben Gordon
Plan C: Send him off for similarly talented players on similar financial deals who may fit our roster needs better (Chris Kaman)
