Steve Mills said he envisions Tim Hardaway Jr. starting at shooting guard for the Knicks next season.
New York awarded THJ with a four-year, $71 million contract this offseason, so it would be surprising to see him come off the bench behind Courtney Lee next season. It doesn't sound like Carmelo Anthony will be in New York next year, so Hardaway Jr. could be heavily involved in the Knicks' offensive attack. He flirting with top-75 value after the break last year, so THJ could be someone to consider towards the later rounds on draft day. Jul 17 - 2:58 PM

The Hawks informed the Knicks they will not match the four-year, $71 million offer sheet on Tim Hardaway Jr.

And THJ is a Knick again. This time, it's going to cost them a lot more and this time they won't be giving him away for Jerian Grant. As ridiculous as this contract may seem, Hardaway Jr. was terrific after the break last year, averaging 17.5 points, 3.5 boards, 2.6 assists, 0.8 steals and 2.1 treys on a tidy 59.3 true shooting percentage. THJ is still just 25 years old and the Knicks will be getting him in his prime, but the Knicks sure do have a lot of their cap space tied up in non-All-Star talent. Fantasy wise, Hardaway Jr. is a possible target in the late middle rounds of drafts.

The Hawks will not match the Knicks $71 million offer to Tim Hardaway Jr., according to Adrian Wojnarowski‏ of ESPN.

This was the expected outcome after the Knicks offered Hardaway a deal far above his market value. Atlanta was reportedly willing to keep Hardaway as long as the offer sheet he signed didn't exceed $48 million. Shockingly, the Knicks offered $71 million and added a trade kicker to the contract to further dissuade Atlanta from matching. Depending on whether or not the Knicks trade away Carmelo Anthony Melo and/or Courtney Lee, Hardaway should be expected to be among the Knicks leading scorers and will be an intriguing fantasy selection in the mid-to-late rounds.

Tim Hardaway Jr. has signed a four-year, $71 million offer sheet with the New York Knicks, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

That is a lot of money, especially when it's coming from a team that basically gave him away a couple summers ago. The Hawks could still match this over-the-top offer, but the fact that they're rebuilding may force them to keep their cap number low for the next few seasons. Most reports have the Hawks matching, but this offer will absolutely test their commitment to THJ.
Jul 6 - 11:12 PM

The Hawks have officially extended a qualifying offer to Tim Hardaway Jr.

The move makes THJ a restricted free agent, meaning the Hawks can match any offer he receives from other teams. Hardaway Jr. is coming off a breakout season with averages of 14.5 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 0.7 steals and 1.9 triples, and the Hawks made it clear that one of their top priorities is to bring him back. Entering his age-25 season, THJ will be one of the top free agent SGs on the market along with J.J. Redick, Dion Waiters and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

Restricted free agent Tim Hardaway Jr. said he's hoping to stick around in Atlanta next season.

"I want to be here, point blank," Hardaway said. "They brought me here because they believed in me and believed in what I’m capable of doing. I’m thankful for it. … As of now, I’m still here. This is my team." He averaged 14.5 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 0.7 steals and 1.9 triples on the season, but really shined after the All-Star break with averages of 17.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 0.8 steals and 2.1 triples. He even took Kent Bazemore's spot in the starting lineup during the playoffs. THJ hopes to improve his ball-handling this summer and should be a significant contributor for the Hawks again in 2017-18 if they decide to bring him back. It sounds like the feeling is mutual, as coach Mike Budenholzer said that re-signing THJ will be a priority of his.

Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said that re-signing Tim Hardaway Jr. will be a priority of his this offseason.

THJ was one of the most improved players in the NBA in 2016-17, averaging 14.5 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 0.7 steals and 1.9 triples in 27.3 minutes per game. Hardaway was actually a candidate to be moved prior to the February deadline, but he made himself indispensable with some strong play after the turn of the new year. He's a restricted free agent which means the Hawks can match any offer he receives, so THJ will likely reprise his role as Atlanta's sixth man in 2017-18 as long as his price doesn't get out of hand. It's not out of the question that he could continue to start as well like he did to close out this season.

Mike Budenholzer said he has no intention of altering his starting lineup for Wednesday's Game 2 against the Wizards.

It sounds like the Hawks will again go with their standard starting group of Dennis Schroder, Tim Hardaway Jr., Taurean Prince, Paul Millsap and Dwight Howard for Game 2, with Kent Bazemore coming off the bench. Hardaway Jr. struggled with his shot during Atlanta's Game 1 loss, connecting on just 2 of his 11 shot attempts, so he'll need to be much better on Wednesday night for the Hawks to have a chance of stealing a game on the road.

Tim Hardaway Jr. couldn't get his shot to drop during Sunday's Game 1 loss, going 2-of-11 from the field and 3-of-5 from the line on his way to seven points in 28 minutes.

Hardaway Jr. got into some early foul trouble and just never really got going in this one, but he averaged 18.0 points against Washington during the regular season, so he should be able to bounce back during Game 2.
Apr 16 - 4:59 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. (rest) will not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Pacers.

The Hawks will be without all of their primary scorers tonight, so guys like Ersan Ilyasova, Malcolm Delaney and Mike Dunleavy could be tasked with some increased responsibility on offense. Delaney could be worth a punt play in DFS.
Apr 12 - 1:52 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 21 points on 7-of-15 shooting Sunday, to go with nine rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer through 37 minutes as a starter.

Coach Mike Budenholzer said pregame that he didn’t want to paint himself into a corner by committing to starting Hardaway Jr. the rest of the way, so there’s a chance we could see him back in a sixth man role on Tuesday with Kent Bazemore re-entering the starting five. That being said, Hardway will still be a significant part of the rotation regardless of how he enters the game.
Apr 9 - 7:12 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 22 points with two rebounds, five assists, one steal and four 3-pointers during a 114-100 win over the Cavs on Friday.

What a win for the Hawks. They were sliding down the standings and could've been in jeopardy to miss the playoffs last week, but this win should put any concerns to bed. As for Hardaway Jr., he won't be winning Most Improved Player, but he's on a very short list of pleasant surprises this season.
Apr 7 - 10:45 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. (knee, foot) will start against the Cavs on Friday.

Well, we have a sudden change here after Hardaway Jr. was called doubtful earlier today. With Hardaway Jr. and Dennis Schroder in the starting lineup, there won't be as many minutes for guys like Mike Dunleavy, DeAndre Bembry and Ryan Kelly. Taurean Prince should still be busy and is worth starting in just about all leagues. Go ahead and fire up THJ, too.
Apr 7 - 6:11 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. (right knee, left foot) is doubtful to play against the Cavs on Friday.

The right knee issue is likely a lingering effect from last weekend while the foot sprain could have happened on Thursday -- he did come up lame under the basket in the second half. Hardaway Jr. has been playing lights out as scorer, so the Hawks will have to replace his 32.5 minutes per game since the break with a 22.3 usage rate in that span. Taurean Prince is about as must-start as it gets with Kent Bazemore also out. Ersan Ilyasova should also be shooting a ton while Mike Dunleavy, DeAndre Bembry and maybe even Ryan Kelly get in the mix.
Apr 7 - 2:32 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 23 points during a 123-116 win over the Celtics on Thursday, adding five rebounds, five assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

So much for that bruised knee over the weekend. Even with the Hawks adding some shooting in Ersan Ilyasova, Hardaway Jr. has busted out for averages of 17.5 points, 3.3 boards, 2.4 assists, 0.9 steals and 2.1 treys on 46.4 percent from the field since the trade deadline. He's been one of the best pickups since January in what has been a mini-breakout year at age 25.
