NBA Trade Deadline: Kirk Hinrich traded to Hawks for Mike Bibby, Jordan Crawford, first-round pick

It looks like Kirk Hinrich is indeed on his way out the door.  The Wizards' guard has been in trade rumors all season, and now it looks like he's heading to the Atlanta Hawks

Michael Lee says that it's Jordan Crawford, not Jamal Crawford, that is coming back to the Wizards.

Kirk Hinrich not playing tonight. #wizards in talks with ATL (for Jordan Crawford), but no deal yet. Could happen soon, according to source ... 

A lot of players would obviously have to be involved because of salaries, but I heard Jordan, not Jamal Crawford. #wizards

Meanwhile, David Aldridge of NBA.com has the specific trade.

Wiz trading Hinrich/Hilton Armstrong 2 ATL 4 Jordan Crawford, Bibby, Mo Evans, first    

If this is the Hawks' pick this year, it will likely be in the early- to mid-20s.  The Wizards only save about $500,000 next season, as Bibby and Crawford combine to make about $7.5 million in 2012, whereas Hinrich makes $8 million.

My first reaction is that I don't really like this trade, though the first-round pick is kind of nice.
