NBA Trade Rumors: Kirk Hinrich To Hawks Appears Official

The deal that would send Kirk Hinrich and Hilton Armstrong to the Hawks for Mike Bibby, Maurice Evans, Jordan Crawford and a first-round pick appears to be done.

The news ripped across Twitter on Wednesday night, and quickly moved from reports to "close" to done.

The Wizards save a moderate amount of cash next season when Kirk Hinrich is due $8 million, while Bibby and Crawford make a combined 7,538,056, according to ShamSports.com.

Of course, the Wizards also get a cheap wing player with upside in Jordan Crawford, and what figures to a draft pick, which figures to be in the later third of the first round.

Crawford was the 27th pick in the NBA 2011 draft out of Xavier. He has been playing 10 minutes off the bench for the Hawks this season, averaging 4.2 points per game and shooting just 35 percent from the field.

Crawford is best known for his dunk on LeBron James at a summer basketball camp. Nike attempted to confiscate all video of the dunk, but it eventually leaked onto the Internet. You can see the video here.
