Chicago Bulls Rumors: Harrison Barnes, Kirk Hinrich Swap Has Potential to Get Done

Chicago Bulls Trade Rumors

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Two of the teams expected to be active prior to the 2014 NBA trade deadline may wind up coming to terms on a deal before February 20th. The Chicago Bulls and Golden State Warriors both would likely to make a deal or two happen in order to better their plans for the future, and there could be something brewing.

The Warriors are not happy with their current standing and would love to get another point guard before the deadline, in order to give Stephen Curry some room to breathe. They already dealt for Jordan Crawford, but the fact that he doesn’t represent a pure point guard has caused Golden State to continue and seek more help.

One player they have been interested in is Bulls point guard Kirk Hinrich, and Chicago would be willing to let him go now that they have a viable backup in D.J. Augustin for when Derrick Rose returns. Who would Golden State send to Chicago in return, though?

According to Sam Amick of USA TODAY Sports, the Warriors are willing to trade just about anyone.

“They have one of the most aggressive front offices in the league, and rival executives are of the belief that anyone not named Stephen Curry or Andrew Bogut is up for discussion,” he wrote.

Chicago has been linked to Warriors forward Harrison Barnes occasionally, when looking through the NBA rumor mill. He would fit perfectly with the Bulls, and the Warriors already have a solid group of wings including Andre Iguodala and Klay Thompson. For Chicago, Barnes could be a guy they may hold onto for the future, while they look to continue blowing things up in preparation for free agency this summer.

Whether the deal happens is still up in the air, but the idea seems intriguing. Stay tuned for the latest rumors around the league up until deadline day — we’ll have them all.

    This is a hilarious notion, yes the trade works out financially. The issue is why would the Warriors trade an upcoming player for a backup point guard?

    It’s not happening. While Barnes has disappointed this season he has more of an all-around game than Klay Thompson who is the one who is more than likely to get traded.

    Also besides having Iguodala and Thompson how does the team have solid wing players beyond those two? There’s Bazemore, Brooks who hardly sees any playing time, Crawford is an undersized shooting guard and Green who is a scrapper.
