    Default Bulls send Hinrich + 17th pick to Wizards for nothing

    The Washington Wizards and Chicago Bulls have agreed to a trade that will send Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich and Chicago's first-round pick, 17th overall, to Washington for a future second-round pick, a league source confirmed Thursday. The deal will clear Hinrich's $9 million salary off of the Bulls' salary cap for next season, as well as the $1.3 million in guaranteed first-year money they would have had to pay their first-round pick, and reduce Chicago's payroll for next season to $22.8 million--which would, if the current projection of a $56.1 million salary cap for the 2010-11 season holds, allow the Bulls to be able to sign two maximum salaried free agents starting next week.

    Could the Raptors have gotten this pick?

    No, because of the NBA's salary-matching rules. It would only work if the Raptors were under the cap (which we're not) or if we had a trade exception (which we don't).
