Backcourt Option of Hinrich.

There's been a lot of talk about different trades that the Bucks can make to take away what appears to be a log jam of potential in the front court, but very little talk has been made about what we do to improve the backcourt. Nate and Brandon appear to be the future (no complaints here), but they could use a bit of veteran help and guidance. (Surprisingly, OJ Mayo is not the first name that comes to my head when I think of players that I want to shepherd the young guys into the NBA). I've also read a ton on the possibility of bringing Rondo to Milwaukee. While, I would love to see that happen: he would be the pass-first point that gives Knight the ability to really focus on being the shooting guard, getting Rajon takes away from a promising Wolters and could bring some baggage to town. Same goes to the talk of bringing in Mario Chalmers. My second point would be are either of these two veterans? They've been in the league for a relatively short time and relied mostly on their big-name counterparts for their success.

We have $12 million of cap space (assuming the roster stays put), so why not spend on a current free agent who has proven to be reliable time after time. Signing a guy like Kirk Hinrich would leave roughly $4 million in space (and that's without making a move to clear a roster spot for him). Over the 12 years that he has been in the league, he has averaged 11 points and 5 assists a game. He's been a guy that can step up in several different situations and has the experience to help our young guard duo mature. He could give Wolters rest while Knight remains on the court and vice versa.

Signing Kirk to our squad would bring a wealth of knowledge to the backcourt and might keep the ball rolling in developing our young guards the right way.
