The Washington Wizards were expected to have a quiet trade deadline this year due to the young roster, yet a day before the shutdown date, general manager Ernie Grunfeld made a trade that sent guard Kirk Hinrich and center Hilton Armstrong to the Atlanta Hawks.
In return, the Hawks would send guard Mike Bibby, forward Maurice Evans, rookie guard Jordan Crawford and a 2011 first round draft pick to the Washington Wizards.
The trade seems like a win-win scenario with the slight edge going to the Wizards for acquiring a young core scoring piece in Crawford, who could help out due to the lack of consistent scorers on the team. For the Hawks, their point guards have been dry the past two years and definitely need to start over at that position with the young talent they have in Jeff Teague.
With all this trade deadline hype, the Wizards still have many questions that need to be answered after this shocking trade went down.
