Grading the Deadline Deals

Atlanta Hawks

Additions –

From Washington: Kirk Hinrich and Hilton Armstrong.

Losses – Mike Bibby, Jordan Crawford, Maurice Evans and 2011 first-round pick.

Grade – C-

The Hawks gave up a 2011 first-round pick, their starting point guard and a few others for a slight upgrade at the guard spot. Hinrich, at 30 years of age, has proved he can start for a team in the past. He has been having a good season playing off the bench behind rookie John Wall. Mike Bibby isn’t too different from Hinrich in terms of numbers, but he does have a few more years under his belt. The Hawks don’t gain here, but lose, with the loss of a first-round pick for simply a swap of point guards.
