I tend to agree with this frame of mind as well- however the overall theme of the thread (IMO) is that either would be an excellent pick- it really depends heavily on what Pax can get to fill the other need (i.e. would trading Hinrich for a Big net a better player than would dealing Gooden/Thomas for a guard?) Hard to say at this point. Hinrich's contract is appealing to alot of teams due to Pax frontloading the deal- Hinrich is actually due only 36.5M over the next four years- with only 17M due over the final two years- a team like the Clippers or (gulp) the Knicks would love to get their hands on a player like Hinrich with a desending contract attached.
Point is, this is a rare 'Win-win' situation we find ourselves in- strap yourselves in kido's this is gunna be alot of fun
