IJordan Crawford like the deal the Washington Wizards made with the Atlanta Hawks and the more I think about it, the more I like it. I think the Wizards got the better end of the deal for a couple of reasons. The first being they get another young player in Jordan Crawford that may turn into the perfect running mate for John Wall. The Atlanta Hawks just took Crawford in the first round of the last NBA Draft. I'm looking forward to seeing him get extended minutes now that he's here with the Wizards.

The second thing about this deal that really gets me excited is that somehow GM Ernie Grunfeld got the Hawks to throw in a first round pick in the upcoming NBA Draft. Say what you want about Ernie, but this is a great deal he just pulled off and deserves some credit because this is a lopsided trade in our favor! Having that pick is huge and gives you more options and ammo to help the rebuilding process along.

I like Kirk Hinrich as a player and wish him all the best, but I'm not sure he will help get the Atlanta Hawks past the Boston Celtics or Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference. Hinrich is an upgrade over Mike Bibby at this stage of their careers, but not enough to justify this deal in my opinion. I think the Hawks have made a huge mistake with this deal, but their loss is our gain!
