Knicks president Phil Jackson said perhaps the worst part of Tim Hardaway Jr.'s game is "his ugly defense."
"We want guys to beat their man to the screen, to wedge themselves between the screen and their man -- something that Timmy rarely, if ever, did," Jackson said. "Instead, he kind of threw his head back and acted as though it was somebody else's responsibility to correctly handle the situation. Timmy needs to grow emotionally to become an NBA player."

The Knicks will trade Tim Hardaway Jr. to the Hawks in exchange for the No. 19 pick, which they'll use to draft Notre Dame PG Jerian Grant.

Phil Jackson summed up Hardaway's inconsistent 2014-15 season as "both good and average" so it's not shocking that they'd deal him. His fantasy value takes a hit in Atlanta where he'll be competing for minutes with veterans Kyle Korver, Thabo Sefolosha and Kent Bazemore, leaving him as a low-end 3-point specialist on draft day.

Coach Stan Van Gundy said the Pistons never talked to the Knicks about Tim Hardaway Jr.

A report popped up this morning that the Pistons "tried to engage" the Knicks, but apparently the two were not close. Hardaway Jr. had a really rough sophomore season and the Knicks are likely going to try and strengthen their wing depth in free agency or in the draft.

The Pistons are interested in trading for Tim Hardaway Jr., sources told ESPN New York.

The Pistons have "tried to engage" the Knicks on a trade, but it doesn't sound like Detroit has been successful to date. It's hard to imagine the Pistons giving up much of anything in terms of real value for THJ, who is coming off a subpar sophomore season and still has a ton to prove in the league.

Knicks president Phil Jackson has mixed reviews on Tim Hardaway Jr.'s 2014-15 season.

Jackson said that Hardaway has a bright future, but was "both good and average" during the 2014-15 season. The Zen Master is correct as Hardaway had an inconsistent season during which he averaged 11.5 points, 2.2 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and 1.7 three-pointers on just 38.9 percent shooting from the field. While the 23-year-old has potential, he won't be much more than a late-round target in 2015-16 fantasy drafts.
Apr 21 - 11:37 AM

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 23 points on 9-of-17 shooting (including three triples) with two rebounds, five assists and one block in 36 minutes on Monday against the Hawks.

Hardaway has been a disappointment all season but he got it done tonight and he wasn't bad on Saturday with a game-winning trey, 13 points and four assists. Though he hit three 3-pointers in that contest, he was just 4-of-16 from the field and that's a typical problem for him. He's as risky as a risk-reward pickup can be heading into the team's final game on Wednesday.
Apr 14 - 2:49 AM

TIm Hardaway Jr. made a game-winning 3-pointer with 12 seconds left on Saturday to beat the Magic, finishing with 13 points, one rebound, four assists and three 3-pointers.

It was going to be an ugly game for Hardaway Jr., but he had a big fourth quarter. His shooting line was still putrid, making 4-of-16 from the field and he's now made just 28.6 percent from the field in his last five. Leave him on the wire in most leagues.

Updating a previous report, X-Rays taken on Tim Hardaway Jr.'s right wrist came back negative and he would eventually return.

Hardaway finished with seven points on 2-of-7 shooting, five boards, one steal and one three in 25 minutes. He hasn't done anything this season to give owners faith, so there's no good reason to assume he'll turn it around anytime soon.
Apr 10 - 8:04 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. landed hard on his right wrist during Friday's game, and he immediately went to the Knicks' locker room.

Not good. Hardaway appeared to be in a considerable amount of pain, and it looks like he re-injured his right wrist that caused him to miss nearly a month of action this season. The Knicks are hurting for bodies right now, and it'll likely be Ricky Ledo stepping into major minutes if Hardaway can't return.
Apr 10 - 7:59 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. will move into the starting lineup against the Bucks on Friday.

With Andrea Bargnani (illness) out, the Knicks will need some more scoring. Hardaway Jr. should be able to play 25-32 minutes, but he's had way too many struggles with his shot to be a reliable option. Shane Larkin should lose some playing time after his 1-of-10 shooting line on Wednesday while Ricky Ledo could be a sixth-man guy for the Knicks tonight.
Apr 10 - 6:00 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 12 points with two boards, one turnover and three 3-pointers in 24 minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday.

He didn't add other stats in the loss tonight. Hardaway Jr. said the Knicks "have a chip on their shoulder" and want to finish strong. "We need to keep battling and try to keep winning as many games as possible," Hardaway Jr. said. The Knicks have a one-game "lead" for the best odds to win the NBA lottery.
Apr 8 - 11:52 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. (wrist) led the Knicks' reserves with 12 points on 5-of-11 shooting on Sunday, adding one rebound, four assists and one steal in 26 minutes.

The 76ers have used 38 different starting lineups this season, while the Knicks have used 34 lineups -- the score was close throughout the game, but this battle of also-rans had all the importance of a neighborhood tee-ball game. Hardaway Jr. is worth a look for owners in need of points and 3-pointers, but that's about it.
Apr 5 - 10:18 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. said that he is disappointed with the way his season has gone so far.

"I’m not going to sugarcoat anything," Hardaway Jr. said. "It wasn’t the year I wanted to have. I know that, and I know the guys on my team know that, as well." At least he is honest. Hardaway Jr. has been a bust this season and has averaged just 11.1 points on 38 percent shooting from the field. He has struggled with a wrist issue in recent weeks, but he said that he plans on playing for the rest of the season. Unless he suddenly catches fire, Hardaway Jr. belongs on the wire in most leagues.

Tim Hardaway Jr. (wrist) returned to action on Friday, missing all seven shot attempts in 18 minutes of action.

Hardaway will want to take a blow-torch to any tape of this season and until he scores 20 points in a game owners can safely ignore him.
Apr 3 - 11:31 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. (wrist) will play against the Wizards on Friday.

He's been out since Mar. 15 due to a sprained wrist and is expected to come off the bench. His return means less minutes for Ricky Ledo, Cleanthony Early and maybe Langston Galloway. Fantasy owners can take a wait-and-see approach on Hardaway Jr.
