CHICAGO -- The Atlanta Hawks acquired guard Kirk Hinrich from the Chicago Bulls in a three-team trade with guard Shelvin Mack going to the Utah Jazz. The Bulls received guard Justin Holiday along with a future second-round pick (from Utah via Denver).

A 12-year veteran, Hinrich, who previously played parts of two seasons in Atlanta, is averaging 3.8 points and 1.7 assists per game and making almost $3 million this season.

The move serves as a money-saving maneuver for a Bulls team that has underperformed all season and comes into Thursday's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers with a 27-25 record.

This will mark Hinrich's second stint with the Hawks -- he was traded from Washington to Atlanta in 2011 and spent parts of two years with the Hawks.
