Tim Hardaway jr 2017-2018 Outlook

As a Knick fan it's becoming hard to hate on Hardaway. He's perfect for the modern NBA of small ball run and gun lineups, has improved his defense and brings a different energy to the court when he's out there.

 

When people ask me about the contract now a days I just tell them to look up Andrew Wiggins, Wesley Matthews, Luol Deng, Evan Turner's contracts. I could go on but THJ looks like a bargain at 17 mil a year.

 

His upside is high and the only thing that will hold this man back is if they bring in another star or an injury. As discussed on pages 22-23, top 40-50 ROS outlook.

I'll never not make fun of the Knicks for letting him get away, get deprogrammed, and then paying him more to come back after getting properly developed.

 

That said, it's pretty crazy he went mostly undrafted in fantasy last year and is now probably a solid tier 2 SG.  In my main keeper league, I picked him up off the waivers last season, mid season.  He was a keeper in the 15th round and if he keeps up the improvement it's gonna be like having Beal in the last round for me next year.

That's his best comp IMO. Similar production for a fraction of the price. I dropped him after week 1, and luckily his owner dropped him shortly before New Years, so I got him back. He'll be a top 40-50 player moving forward, as @greatestmetfan said.
