Tim Hardaway Jr. is on the move. The former Wolverine will play his third year in the NBA for the Atlanta Hawks, according to a report by Adrian Wojnarowski.
The Knicks traded Hardaway during Thursday night’s NBA Draft to the Hawks for the rights to first round draft pick Jerian Grant.
Hardaway averaged 9.7 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game in his second season in the NBA. He shot 39% from the floor overall for the 17-65 Knicks. The trade to Atlanta should provide Hardaway with an opportunity to play with a much better team overall as the Hawks led the Eastern Conference with a 60-22 record.
