Lakers Trade Rumors: Adding Kirk Hinrich a Possibility for the Lakers?

Over the past week or so and throughout All-Star weekend, the NBA trade rumors were starting to heat up with the biggest name on the trading block in Dwight Howard rumored to be headed to Los Angeles as early as March 1. There have been plenty of reports since the news broke of this potential trade that have this trade rumor being false, but that hasn’t stopped the Los Angeles Lakers from being involved in a few more rumors involving point guards.

The latest player to be added to the mix of plenty supposedly headed to the City of Angels is Atlanta Hawks’ guard Kirk Hinrich. Last season there was some talk of the Lakers flirting with the idea of bringing in Hinrich via trade before the deadline, but that deal never came to fruition. This time around the Lakers desperately need an upgrade at the point and Hinrich could be a viable option.

According to John Carroll of ESPN, the Lakers could acquire Kirk Hinrich by dealing rookie Darius Morris and a first-round pick to the Atlanta Hawks. This pick sent to Atlanta could be the one received in the Lamar Odom trade earlier this season via the Dallas Mavericks, or the Lakers’ first-round pick.

Kirk Hinrich would be a great addition to this Lakers squad as he brings a much needed upgrade on defense and on the offensive end at the point guard position. Lakers head coach Mike Brown will most likely be the biggest fan of this trade as he will finally get a point guard with the kind of defensive mentality he has been looking for.

This season Kirk Hinrich is averaging 4.9 points and 2.6 assists per game. These certainly are not eye-popping numbers, but he has only played in 16 games this season while taking a backseat to up-and-comer Jeff Teague in Atlanta.
