SHARE WATCH: Bulls players greet Kirk Hinrich prior to Hawks game

Kirk Hinrich’s on-the-floor impact in Chicago this season was minimal, but it was clear prior to Friday’s game in Atlanta how well he was regarded within the Bulls locker room.

One-by-one, Bulls player after Bulls player came over to greet Hinrich, who stood near the scorer’s table before the Hawks and Bulls tipped off.

Chicago shipped the veteran guard to Atlanta at the trade deadline in a salary dump that netted swingman Justin Holiday.

Hinrich spent part of 11 seasons in Chicago, where he ranks third all-time in games played, eighth in points, third in assists and steals and first in 3-point field goals.

The former first-round pick has yet to see the floor in Friday’s game, which Atlanta leads at half 51-44.
