This pick should be for the Washington Wizards, who reportedly made a deal earlier in which they received Kirk Hinrich and this pick from the Bulls.
So this trade means one thing for Chicago: Cap space created to attempt to lure LeBron James away from Chicago.
For Washington, it’s another building block, adding to the strong foundation piece selected first overall tonight, point guard John Wall.
For the Wizards, this is a guy you have to imagine won’t be in Washington this season. The vitals: He’s 6-9, 264 pounds, and he’ll turn 21 in December. By taking on Hinrich, the Wizards added a big salary; they won’t bring in a rookie, give him a guaranteed salary and sit him on the bench. Look for him to keep playing overseas.
