Come every NBA trade deadline, point guard always seems to be the most desired position. This year things are no different as multiple teams across the league are attempting to obtain themselves a point guard which has the values of Andre Miller, Kirk Hinrich and possibly Kyle Lowry sky high.

Lowry, for what it’s worth, likely has the highest price of available point guards though is the least likely to be traded given the recent success of the Toronto Raptors.

Meanwhile, in Denver, Andre Miller has worn out his welcome while free agent to be, Kirk Hinrich, is no longer needed by the Chicago Bulls. That has lead to much speculation that both Miller and Hinrich will be changing zip codes come the February trade deadline, but according to Bleacher Report’s Ric Bucher, league executives are confused as to who would be the better trade acquisition.

League executives are conflicted on who would be a better fit among the other big point guards potentially available, the Nuggets’ Andre Miller or the Bulls’ Kirk Hinrich. Miller is a better offensive option than Hinrich but, as he has demonstrated in Denver, is not happy if he isn’t playing; there are questions, however, if Hinrich has enough left to be a playoff factor at either end of the floor.

    Kirk Hinrich has enough left to be a capable backup guard. He is a streaky shooter, but he is not careless with the ball and defends well. He is capable of quality minutes as a reserve– he just is no longer able to start for an entire season in place of perennially injured Derrick Rose. He would be a good acquisition to bolster a playoff-bound team.
