Dude, therer are many, many better defensive guards in this league.
I do like Hinrich, but come on.
He is overrated simply because he is worth no where near his contract.
He is a nice player, and I personally think he'd be a good fit in our system.
He is a good, not great, defender. He passes and handles the ball well, and I think he'd be a high % 3 point shooter in OUR system, because he'd get so many wide open shots.

I read someone on the Bulls board suggest that Hinrich>Odom.
People always overestimatre their own players.
Bulls mgt would jump at a chance to make that swap, but we would never do it.
As far as the Bynum rumors, he is the future face of this franchise, and IMO, would be a 20/10 guy right now on just about any other team in the league.

If Mitch could pull off a little more of the Kwame for Gasol magic, great, I think Hinrich would be a good fit and solve our PG question well into the future.
But, IMO, the Bulls won't just dump him, and will expect some nice talent coming back in a trade, talent that the Lakers would not be willing to offer.
