The Bulls didn’t pull off the big deal it seems they were hoping to, but they did make one trade Thursday before the 2 p.m. deadline.

According to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, Chicago has traded longtime Bull Kirk Hinrich to Atlanta in exchange for a second-round pick.

Hinrich, drafted by Chicago in the first round of the 2003 draft, now heads back to Atlanta, where he spent part of two seasons before rejoining the Bulls in 2012.

The Kansas product ranks fourth all time in Bulls history in minutes played, but was averaging a career-low 15.9 minutes and 3.8 points per game under coach Fred Hoiberg this season.

Hinrich is the franchise’s all-time leader in 3-pointers made, ranks third in assists and steals and eighth in points.
