ATLANTA -- The struggling Atlanta Hawks acquired guard Kirk Hinrich from Washington in a five-player trade Wednesday, upgrading their backcourt for the playoff run.

The Hawks also received forward Hilton Armstrong in exchange for guard Mike Bibby, rookie guard Jordan Crawford, swingman Maurice Evans and a first-round pick in this year's draft.

The Hawks have lost four out of five games and slipped to fifth in the top-heavy Eastern Conference. Not only do they have to worry about catching the teams ahead of them; the sixth-place New York Knicks, who began the night five games behind Atlanta, made one of biggest splashes ahead of Thursday's trade deadline by acquiring Denver star Carmelo Anthony.

The 32-year-old Bibby had lost a step defensively and was no longer the creative force offensively he was in his younger days. Hawks coach Larry Drew had hoped second-year player Jeff Teague would take on a larger role at the point, but he was averaging less than 12 minutes a game.

Hinrich should be an improvement over Bibby at both ends of the court. He was averaging 11.1 points and 4.4 assists as on off-and-on starter, frequently playing alongside prized rookie John Wall.

Damn, thats a name that I totally forgot, yet, my HS team played against Wichita Collegiate during his HS years there.

Kicked their asses for the 3A state championship in '98.

Hes ok....solid, but nothing truly special. He doesnt quite have the speed to keep up with the top tier guards in the league.


Hard to believe hes been in the NBA like 7 or 8 years already.

yea, Collison is ok too...not a star, but a solid role player. Does the dirty work inside setting up the star Kevin Durant.

Collison took out Tony Parker last night with a flagrant.
