Chicago to Trade Ben Gordon Instead of Kirk Hinrich?


Chicago to Trade Ben Gordon Instead of Kirk Hinrich?It is widely presumed that Chicago will soon trade guard Kirk Hinrich now that the Bulls have drafted Derrick Rose with the No. 1 overall pick, with Golden State likewise assumed to be atop the list of Hinrich suitors given the void created in the Warriors’ backcourt by Davis’ departure. But NBA front-office sources insist that there is some sentiment in the Bulls’ organization to keep Hinrich — a favorite of Bulls chairman Jerry Reinsdorf — and play him at shooting guard alongside Rose while trying to move restricted free agent Ben Gordon in a sign-and-trade to fill another Chicago need.
