Which backup point guard best suits the Warriors?

In trading centerpiece swingman Luol Deng on Tuesday, the Bulls -- whose title hopes died with the season-ending knee injury to star guard Derrick Rose -- announced they are ready to revamp the roster and look toward the future.

Utility guard Kirk Hinrich is expected to be the next-most valued trade target, according to Sam Amick of USA TODAY. And, citing a person with knowledge of the situation, Amick says the Warriors "are among teams that had been showing serious interest in Hinrich long before the Deng trade."

Golden State has also been linked to veteran guard Andre Miller as the team looks to fill the void left by Jarrett Jack.

Hinrich is making $4.1 million this season and becomes an unrestricted free agent in the summer. The 33-year old, 11-year veteran is averaging 7.8 points, 4.7 assists, 2.9 rebounds and 30.7 minutes in 27 games, 17 starts for the Bulls.

Tony Douglas, who was acquired this offseason to back up Stephen Curry, has not panned out as the team hoped. The five-year veteran, who missed a number of weeks with a stress reaction in his left tibia earlier this year, is averaging 3.8 points, .9 assists and 11.7 minutes per game for the Warriors.
