2019 Fantasy Outlook
While Hardaway averaged a career-high 18.1 points per game last season, most of that damage was done during his 46 appearances with the Knicks to start the regular season. Then, Hardaway was included in the blockbuster Kristaps Porzingis trade, which sent him to Dallas along with the seven-footer. In Dallas, Hardaway appeared in 19 games, making 17 starts and averaging 15.5 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.9 assists across 29.4 minutes per game. And in what has become typical Hardaway fashion throughout his career, the swingman didn't reach those numbers in the most efficient manner, shooting 32.1 percent from three and 40.4 percent from the field overall while in with the Mavericks. Hardaway, however, is still a decent three-point shooter for his career, going 34.3 percent from deep over the course of his six NBA seasons. And with the Mavericks not exactly boasting great depth on the wing, Hardaway, who has seen his scoring averages increase every year since 2016, is in line to open the season as the team's starter at small forward and play a fairly significant role for them in 2019-20. But he will likely be bumped down to the team's third option offensively with the return of Porzingis. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio

Timothy Duane Hardaway Jr. was born in Alameda, California, to Yolanda Hardaway and Tim Hardaway Sr. His father was a five-time All-Star in the NBA. Tim Hardaway Jr. attended Palmer Trinity School as a high-school freshman, playing football before focusing on basketball. He transferred to Miami Palmetto High School prior to his sophomore season, and there he played basketball for three years. During his senior season, Hardaway Jr. posted per-game averages of 31.7 points, 7.3 rebounds and 4.0 assists. He earned first-team All-City honors following his junior and senior campaigns after a selection to the third team as a sophomore. As a college basketball star at the University of Michigan, Hardaway Jr. and many of his teammates visited the St. Louis Center -- a caring residential community for children and adults who have intellectual and developmental disabilities -- in Chelsea, Michigan, to spend time with residents and demonstrate basketball skills. After reaching the pros, he joined fellow NBA player Ray Allen for a visit to Lake Stevens Middle School in Miami Gardens, Florida, to celebrate the donation of a revamped computer lab and brand new computers via Allen's Ray of Hope Foundation.

College/International Summary

When Hardaway stepped onto the court in Ann Arbor, he was a starter. In three years with the Wolverines, the second-generation basketball player started 107 games and provided double-digit scoring each season. The 6-foot-6 guard provided 13.9 points and 3.8 rebounds as a freshman. He reached the 20-point plateau six times, including a career-high 30 points in a win over Iowa. Michigan lost in the second round of the NCAA Tournament to Duke, but Hardaway scored 15 points in the loss. The guard struggled with his long-range shot as a sophomore and converted just 28.3 percent of his three-point attempts. He still averaged 14.6 points and helped the Wolverines back to the Big Dance, where they were upset by Ohio in the first round. The team played like it had something to prove in the 2012-13 season. Hardaway averaged 14.5 points per game and hit 37.4 percent of his treys. Michigan advanced to the National Championship game and Hardaway scored at least nine points in each NCAA Tournament game. He had 12 points, five rebounds and four assists in the loss to Louisville. With one season of eligibility remaining, Hardaway declared for the 2013 NBA Draft and was chosen with the 24th overall pick by the New York Knicks.

Past Season Summaries
2018

Hardaway began the 2018-19 season by starting in all 46 of his appearances with the Knicks. He thrived over that time, averaging a career-best 19.1 points per game and delivering six games with at least 30 points -- including 31 in the season opener. Hardaway piled up a season-high 37 points against Indiana on Halloween, shooting 10-of-19 from the field with a career-high seven threes. Then, in the middle of November, he reeled off three consecutive outings with 30-plus points. Hardaway was an assassin from long range, hitting at least four treys in 12 games during his time with the Knicks. He also tallied two double-doubles with New York. On Jan. 31, Hardaway was dealt, along with Kristaps Porzingis, Trey Burke and Courtney Lee, to the Mavericks. Hardaway proceeded to start 17 of his 19 appearances for the Mavs while seeing a moderate reduction in his minutes and scoring load. Even so, he scored at least 20 points in seven of his 19 games with Dallas, hitting four threes in four of those games. The 6-foot-6 wing averaged 15.5 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.9 assists in his new uniform.

2017

After two seasons in Atlanta, Hardaway signed back up with the Knicks -- with whom he started his career -- on a four-year deal ahead of the 2017-18 season. Although he was limited to 57 games due to a knee injury, that didn't stop Hardaway from enjoying full-time starting action when healthy (54 starts). As a result, he averaged career highs across the board with 17.5 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.7 assists per contest. The fifth-year guard played a career-high 33.1 minutes per tilt. Hardaway cleared 20 points on 18 occasions and poured in at least 30 points five times. He scored a career-high 39 points against Minnesota on Mar. 23, making a career-high 14 field goals as well as a career-high-tying six 3-pointers. Hardaway hit six threes two more times, scoring north of 30 in both of those games as well. He also continued becoming a more well-rounded producer, as Hardaway recorded his first two double-digit-rebound games in the NBA, notching his first two double-doubles in the process. He tied his career high with eight assists in an Oct. 29 win over Cleveland -- a game in which he scored 34 points. As part of his continued improvement on the defensive end, Hardaway recorded a season-high three steals six times.

2016

After enduring a tough campaign with limited minutes the year before, Hardaway came back with a vengeance in his second season with Atlanta. He played in 79 games, starting 30 while averaging career highs in points (14.5), field-goal percentage (45.5), made threes (1.9), rebounds (2.8), assists (2.3) and steals (0.7). He tied his career high with six threes on New Year's Day against San Antonio. Hardaway posted the first two 30-point games of his career, including a career-high 36 on Mar. 3 against Cleveland. All told, he scored in double digits 58 times and piled up 23 games with 20-plus points. The fourth-year guard set a new career high with with eight assists Jan. 29 against his old Knicks club, and he recorded another career high with nine rebounds Apr. 9 against Cleveland. After playing a minor role off the bench in the previous season's playoffs, Hardaway played a far bigger role this time around, starting all six games of Atlanta's first-round loss to Washington and averaging 12.8 points across 33.4 minutes per contest. He scored 19 points in Game 2, representing his personal high for postseason play.

2015

An offseason trade brought Hardaway to Atlanta, where he made 51 appearances in the 2015-16 NBA season. With Jeff Teague, Kent Bazemore and Dennis Schroder eating up guard minutes for the Hawks, Hardaway made only one start and averaged 16.9 minutes and 6.4 points, both significant drops from his two years with the Knicks. Nonetheless, when the ball did make its way into his hands, Hardaway remained a dangerous shooter. He set a new career high with a 43.0 field-goal percentage and a pristine 89.3 free-throw percentage. He also hit 33.8 percent of his threes, averaging nearly a made three per game even in limited action. Hardaway's lone start of the year, Mar. 17 against Denver, saw him score a season-high 21 points along with a career-high-tying seven rebounds. Two days later, he posted another 20 points against Houston while hitting a season-high five threes on seven attempts. Hardaway also made his NBA postseason debut, averaging 2.2 points over 9.7 minutes across nine games during the Hawks' two-round playoff run.

2014

Hardaway Jr.'s second NBA campaign saw him play a somewhat larger role for the Knicks, making 30 starts across 70 games and averaging 24.0 minutes. He responded with 11.5 points, 1.7 threes, 2.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game -- all improvements over his rookie season. For the second consecutive season, he opened the campaign in a limited bench role before playing his way into increased court time. After averaging just 17.4 minutes and 8.7 points over his first 23 games, Hardaway averaged 12.8 points over 27.3 minutes the rest of the way. Hardaway piled up 20-plus points 10 times, topping out with a pair of 25-point games. Arguably his finest effort of the season came Jan. 24 against Charlotte, when he racked up the first of those 25-point efforts alongside six rebounds, five assists and a block. He hit five threes in that game -- one of four times on the season that he did so. On the whole, the sharp-shooting guard again hit his threes at a healthy clip -- 34.2 percent -- and made 80.1 percent of his free throws as well. Hardaway showed significant improvement as a ball distributor, notching five assists on four separate occasions after never exceeding three in his rookie year. He also set a new career high with seven rebounds, a mark he achieved on both Feb. 22 and Feb. 28.

2013

Hardaway Jr. -- the son of retired NBA star Tim Hardaway -- went to the Knicks with the 24th pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, then went on to appear in 81 games for New York. He started just once, but that didn't stop the former Michigan star from averaging 10.2 points per game, good for fifth on the team. After seeing limited usage for much of his first 14 games of the season, Hardaway Jr. blew up for 21 points -- including five 3-pointers -- on Dec. 1 against New Orleans. By the middle of the season, he was regularly seeing 30 minutes off the bench, and that was reflected in his stats. Over his first 42 games, Hardaway averaged 8.2 points. But from Jan. 26 through the end of the season, a 39-game span, he posted 12.3 points per game. A shoot-first guard, Hardaway averaged 1.6 threes per game while making them at a 36.3 percent clip, and he shot a sparkling 82.8 percent from the free-throw line. His biggest performance came Jan. 30 against Cleveland, when Hardaway poured in 29 points on 11-of-17 shooting -- including hitting a season-high six threes. All told, Hardaway scored 20-plus points nine times and hit multiple threes on 36 occasions. He notched a season-high five rebounds three times and posted four three-steal games. Hardaway finished fifth in the Rookie of the Year voting and made the NBA All-Rookie First Team.

2013
Following a breakout season in Atlanta, the Knicks opted to fork over a four-year, $71 million contract offer to Hardaway, which he quickly accepted without much thought considering he wasn't going to get anywhere near that number elsewhere in the league. While it was largely considered the biggest overpay of that year's free agency period, Hardaway still became one of the Knicks' top options offensively, especially after Kristaps Porzingis went down with a torn ACL and missed the second half of the year. However, Hardaway himself dealt with some injuries as well, missing a stretch of 20 straight games due to a leg injury. That said, when he was on the court, the 26-year-old set career highs across the board, averaging 17.5 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.1 steals across 33.1 minutes. In addition, he continued to be a respected deep ball threat, knocking down 2.3 three-pointers per game. Hardaway likely frustrated owners with his percentages, shooting 42.1 percent from the field and just 31.7 percent from beyond the arc, but his strong totals elsewhere did make up for it a bit. Looking forward to the upcoming campaign, Hardaway once again has a big opportunity ahead of him. Porzingis is still in the middle of his recovery and is looking at a return in December at the earliest. That means Hardaway is going to have the ball in his hands quite often right away and could have the chance to potentially see a slight increase in his numbers across the board. Efficiency issues will continue to linger and there are some injury concerns, but with a high usage role expected, look for Hardaway to crack the top-100 once again for most Fantasy leagues.
Hardaway was arguably the biggest surprise for the Hawks during the 2016-17 season. After averaging just 16.9 minutes a year prior, he developed quickly as a scorer, earning a huge boost in playing time to 27.3 minutes per game. Hardaway started 30 of the 79 games he played in, resulting in career highs across the board of 14.5 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.9 three-pointers. He shot a respectable 45.5 percent from the floor and 35.7 percent from deep, though he struggled as a free-throw shooter and hit a career-low 76.6 percent from the charity stripe. The Hawks were expected to retain the restricted free agent this offseason, but the Knicks ended up offering an unexpected four-year, $70.9 million contract. The Hawks refused to match the offer, one that was much higher than most expected Hardaway to get, which places him in a rather advantageous position moving forward in New York. Despite joining a team that's unlikely to make the playoffs, Carmelo Anthony is likely on the way out, which leaves Kristaps Porzingis as one of just a few scoring options for the Knicks. That means Hardaway is going to step into a starting role right away and will likely get the green light immediately to take his shots. The starter's workload and the added opportunity to become one of the leading scorers on the Knicks should mean big things are to come for Hardaway. That said, he'll largely be a points and a three-point specialist in terms of his Fantasy value, as he'll need to show vast improvement in his all-around production before becoming one of the elite shooting guard options in the league.
Acquired last June from the Knicks, Hardaway struggled to distinguish himself with the Hawks in the early stages of the 2015-16 season. A poor preseason kept Hardaway out of coach Mike Budenholzer's rotation to start the campaign and resulted in the young guard making a few stops in the D-League, but he finally developed into a trusted bench option when the calendar turned to 2016. From Jan. 5 until the end of the regular season, Hardaway averaged 6.7 points, 1.7 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.0 three-pointer in 17.4 minutes per game while shooting a palatable 44 percent from the floor. A hamstring injury would limit Hardaway's involvement in the postseason, but the 24-year-old nonetheless established himself as one of the team's top reserve scorers heading into the upcoming season. Hardaway will likely serve as the Hawks' first or second guard off the bench in 2016-17, providing Budenholzer with another offensive-minded option if starting shooting guard Kyle Korver's shot isn't falling early in games.
In his second season, Hardaway had averages of 11.5 points on 10.2 field goal attempts, 1.7 three-pointers, 2.2 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.3 steals, and 0.2 blocks in 24 minutes per game through 70 regular season games with the Knicks. Hardaway shot 39 percent from the floor, 34 percent from downtown, and 80 percent from the foul line. Traded on draft-day this summer in exchange for the rights to select Jerian Grant, Hardaway's role with the Hawks in 2015-16 may very well be as a reserve. However, the fact that Hardaway is a solid perimeter shooter who raised his assist average from 0.8 as a rookie to 1.8 as a sophomore bodes well for his fit on a squad that's known for sharing the ball and spacing the floor.
The 24th pick of the 2013 NBA Draft, Hardaway enjoyed a promising debut campaign last season that earned him a First-Team All-Rookie selection. In 81 games played, Hardaway averaged 10.2 points in 23 minutes per game, while converting 36 percent of his three-point attempts en route to 130 triples on the season. As the year unfolded, Hardaway's penchant for coming off the bench and providing an offensive spark became more evident. While starting shooting guard Iman Shumpert frustrated offensively, Hardaway was given the green light to fire from outside and ended the season as the most accurate three-point shooter among rookies that made at least 55 three-pointers. His progress carried over to summer league play in Las Vegas, where Hardaway finished second in scoring with 22.8 points per game in five appearances during July. Such development has Hardaway slated for a larger role under new Knicks' coach Derek Fisher this season. Fisher's Triangle offense values outside shooting in creating floor spacing, which coincides perfectly with Hardaway's game. In fact, leading up to the season, Hardaway should compete for a place in the Knicks' starting lineup. Although he's gifted athletically, he will need to show improvement on defense and could improve his all-around game to become less one-dimensional. Nonetheless, Hardaway represents an intriguing, high-upside scorer going into his second season.
The Knicks selected Hardaway in the first round of the draft to provide them with yet another quality offensive option off their bench. He should provide a nice scoring punch, but his fantasy value will be limited because he will likely see limited minutes. However, with Smith out of action to start the season, Hardaway could see more minutes than expected to start, which provides him with the opportunity to carve out a solid role off the bench.
