Even if Hinrich plays 30 mpg (which is not a complete given imo), he'll still need to improve his per-minute production a decent bit to be top 100 I think. Last year he averaged almost 26 mpg, but came in at 6.6 ppg, 2.1 rpg, 2.8 apg, 1.0 3pm and 0.8 steals. Not so great. extrapolate that out to 30 mpg and it's still like 8 points, 2.5 rebs, 3.5 assists, 1.2 3s, and maybe 1 steal/game, with %s that aren't helping much either. That's not a top 100 player or really that close.
I know it's a different team but I don't see how Chicago will be all that great for him or why his per minute production would suddenly take a spike upwards from what it's been the past couple years, which isn't that good frankly. Not too high on Kirk.
