Hardaway Jr. officially signs with Mavericks

The Dallas Mavericks have officially signed guard Tim Hardaway Jr., the team announced on Monday.

According to reports, it’s a four-year, $72 million deal.

Last season, the eight-year veteran averaged 16.6 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.8 assists per game. Hardaway hit a career-high 207 3-pointers (8th-most in the NBA), the second-most in franchise history. After Hardaway served the role of “sixth man” early in the season, he closed out the season in the starting lineup. 

Dallas originally acquired the 29-year-old Hardaway Jr. on January 21, 2019, along with Kristaps Porzingis, Courtney Lee, and Trey Burke, in exchange for Dennis Smith Jr., DeAndre Jordan, Wesley Matthews, and two future first-round draft picks.

Hardaway jr. had some good moments last season and is a player who is a knockdown shooter. He’s a good piece alongside Luka Doncic. He could be a starter or come off the bench and bring instant offense for Dallas next season.
