The Atlanta Hawks traded guard Mike Bibby, rookie guard Jordan Crawford, swingman Maurie Evans and a first-round pick in the 2011 draft to the Washington Wizards in exchange for guard Kirk Hinrich and forward Hilton Armstrong.
And I'm a bit surprised that the person who wrote the SI.com article considered Hinrich to be an upgrade over Bibby.

Hinrich was high on the Lakers' wish list, so this is a loss for them.
I remember that both Bibby and Hinrich have seen better days. Hinrich was a very capable #2 on the young post-Jordan Bulls and Bibby came within a Tim Donaghy of the Finals. That was a long time ago and neither guy is what you'd consider a spring chicken.
Chris webber performed extreamly well tonight but fell short to Bucks in overtime. As for Buck's draft first pick, Andrew Bogut was welcomed to the NBA by Andre Iguodala with a slam dunk over him. It was sort of like when Kobe Bryant dunked on Yao Ming....
