2013 NBA Draft: New York Knicks Select Tim Hardaway Jr. With No. 24 Pick
Position: Shooting Guard
About the Prospect: Hardaway Jr. proved his ability to consistently score the basketball in each of his three years at Michigan. He has good size and great athleticism for the shooting guard position and he will need to continue to taking advantage of his offensive skill set if he hopes to have a lengthy NBA career. Hardaway Jr. is a hard worker and he loves to compete, two added characteristics that could make him a valuable commodity at the professional level.
Hardaway Jr. is a proven, productive shooting guard who can score in a variety of ways thanks to some great athleticism.
About His Impact on Team: The Knicks’ faithful were ecstatic when they heard New York call Hardaway Jr.’s name on Thursday night and rightfully so. As a pure shooter, Hardaway Jr. should fit in well with the Knicks considering the offense is totally free of restrictions and promotes plenty of shots from the perimeter. Apart from a deadly outside shot, the Knicks’ rookie will also be able to drive to the basket and create more shots for Carmelo Anthony, who is the NBA‘s reigning scoring leader. Without a ton of youth on its roster, New York has a lot of riding on the Hardaway Jr. pick as the rookie needs to provide some young legs.
