The Chicago Bulls have traded guard Kirk Hinrich to the Atlanta Hawks, reports ESPN’s Brian Windhorst.

The Bulls will receive a second-round draft pick in return, according to the report. The Bulls will also receive Justin Holiday in the trade, which includes the Utah Jazz as well, reports K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune. The Hawks also send guard Shelvin Mack to the Jazz.

Hinrich is averaging 3.8 points and 1.7 assists per game in 35 appearances so far this season. He previously played for Atlanta during the 2010–11 and 2011–12 seasons before returning to Chicago.

Now in his 13th season out of Kansas, Hinrich has averaged 11 points and 4.9 assists per game in his career, and is also known for his defensive tenacity. The Hawks opened up a spot in their backcourt earlier Thursday after reportedly treading Shelvin Mack to the Jazz.
