Kirk Hinrich Hopeful He Remains in Atlanta
At last season’s trade deadline Hawks guard Kirk Hinrich was looking forward to the chance to leave the struggling Wizards for a playoff team.
It’s different this time around for Hinrich. His name is circulating in trade rumors because of Atlanta’s glut of guards and his expiring contract but Hinrich hopes he’s still with the Hawks after Thursday’s deadline.
“I like our team,” Hinrich said before the Hawks played the Kings late Sunday. “I feel like we can be a dangerous team come playoff time. I want to be a part of that.”
