The Golden State Warriors have been on the market for quite a while looking for a point guard to back up Stephen Curry, and another name has been included in the mix as of late.
Head coach Mark Jackson is eager to add an experienced floor general to the roster – much like he did with Jarrett Jack last season in a move that paid dividends. Even though Andre Miller has been heavily rumored to be a target, Chicago Bulls’ Kirk Hinrich could also emerge as a possibility.
The Bulls have reportedly placed Hinrich on the trade block as they are looking to tank this season. Even though the Warriors don’t have much to offer in return outside of their core seven, a few picks and a player like Toney Douglas who can play in the backcourt could be enough.
Hinrich would be a great fit for the Warriors’ organization as Mark Jackson relies heavily on the play of their guards. He is a good ball-handler, he has a lot of experience and he also possesses a clean stroke in his release. Hinrich could be used as a spot-up shooter if he’s paired with Curry and could serve as the floor-general if paired with Klay Thompson.
No offer has been made yet and there aren’t talks on either side, but Hinrich would be a great addition to the Warriors’ roster. He is a great fit for the franchise and would add some much-needed experience to a Golden State team that looks poised to have a deep playoff run.
