USATSI_7240448_crop_northThe Chicago Bulls look to be heading into a rebuilding mode after trading Luol Deng, and it now appears they are going to be cleaning out the house.

Tom Thibodeau already is pissed off about Deng gone, and he's likely to pull a Doc Rivers sometime this year and leave the Bulls. Adding to it, Carlos Boozer is now expected to be amnestied soon. Guys like Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson don't appear to be safe either maybe.

With all of this happening, it looks like several NBA teams are looking to go after some of the Bulls' assets to help their own squad. One of those teams are believed to be the Golden State Warriors, who are rumored to be targeting backup point guard Kirk Hinrich.

Sam Amick of USA Today writes that the Warriors could still be in need of a guy that can play that Jarrett Jack role for them that they had last season until Jack left to join sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers:
Even with the Warriors' current nine-game winning streak, they remain on the lookout for a point guard to play behind Stephen Curry. While small forward Andre Iguodala spends ample time as a playmaking point-forward and veteran Toney Douglas provides spot minutes, this is the void that was created when Jarrett Jack left for Cleveland as a free agent last July.

Joe Kaiser of ESPN.com writes that Hinrich could be an option for Golden State once the Feb. 20 NBA trade deadline approaches.

Though he is 33 years old, Hinrich could provide some solid minutes off the bench for Stephen Curry. He was averaging eight points and five assists per game this season as a backup with the Bulls.

Would be a great fit for Golden State, and a move head coach Mark Jackson would definitely be in favor of.
