Hawks, Wizards are the latest teams to made a trade before the deadline

The Atlanta Hawks and the Washington Wizards are the latest NBA teams to make a trade.

The Hawks traded Mike Bibby, Mo Evans, Jordan Crawford and a first-round draft pick to the Wizards for Kirk Hinrich and Hilton Armstrong. The Wizards needed guards badly, and they picked up several in this trade.

Hinrich will now become the Hawks starting point guard. Bibby was formerly the Hawks starting point guard. He will now become the Wizards back up point guard to John Wall.

“Those guys are like brothers to me,” Hawks forward Josh Smith said of his now-former teammates. “At the same time, we know this is a business. These things happen. The guys at the top felt like a change needed to be made.”
