Hawks Will Not Match Tim Hardaway Jr's Offer Sheet

Posted July 09, 2017

The Knicks left National Basketball Association fans scratching their heads on Thursday night by signing Hawks guard Tim Hardaway Jr.to a four-year, $71 million offer sheet.

Tim Hardaway Jr.'s second act in NY can now begin.

While the Knicks succeeded in claiming a restricted free agent, the Nets may not be so fortunate.

U.S. media reported the Hawks would decline to match the four-year offer made by Knicks on Thursday, thus allowing Hardaway's move to go ahead.

No members of the Trump family were in the building, as the U.S. president and his daughter are in Germany for the G20 summit. Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, was also appointed as a senior White House adviser by the president.

The Hawks had 48 hours to match the offer with a deadline of 11 p.m. ET Saturday.

Hardaway had a much improved year with Atlanta last season, playing in 79 games and scoring 14.5 points per game on 46 percent shooting.

Although all four players will be of significance to the long-term vision, all eyes are on Hardaway Jr. and whether or not he'll be able to build upon his 2016-17 success.

Hardaway Jr. was drafted by the Knicks in the first round of the 2013 draft.

The way he's dealt with me personally and professionally has been great and a key factor in me joining. Asked about the prospect of that scenario, a smiling Terry added: "That's the ideal situation".

If the Knicks can come to terms with the Rockets or another team on a deal for Anthony, the 10-time All-Star will have to waive his no-trade clause to finalize the agreement.

With Phil Jackson - who orchestrated the Hardaway trade - ousted, and with $71 million to an unproven player, the Knicks look headed in a far different direction than they did a few weeks ago. The Knicks acquired Jerian Grant in that deal, who they flipped to the Bulls a year later in the Derrick Rose trade. But in the end, the money was far greater in NY than the Hawks were willing to pay.

The Knicks have made many baffling personnel moves in the past decade-plus.
