Dallas Mavericks wing Tim Hardaway Jr. is ready for NBA Disney

The Dallas Mavericks are just beginning their preparations for the NBA’s restart. They depart for Orlando on July 8. The Mavs will begin training camp 2.0 after arriving. Their first game is on July 31 against the Rockets. Tim Hardaway Jr. may already be ready.

Mavericks fans know he spent most of the NBA’s suspension in Miami. Hardaway Jr. began working out there. He was getting up shots and locking in ahead of the restart.

Hardaway Jr. becoming Dallas’ third scorer has been one of the keys to the team’s improvement. He is shooting over 40 percent from 3-point range for the first time in his career. That has been sparked by playing next to Luka Doncic. Read more about the connection between the two Mavs here.

Hardaway Jr. is back in Dallas now. All the players are getting up shots at the Mavericks practice facility. The team will not begin full practices or training camp until arriving in Orlando.

Hardaway Jr. is not the only one already working hard. Fans have seen pictures of Luka Doncic regaining his conditioning. Kristaps Porzingis has also been spotted putting in a lot of work. The Mavericks will be ready to hit the ground running in Orlando.

Finding their rhythm quickly will be important if they plan on making a run. Regardless, fans should be in for a treat when basketball returns, so make sure you tune in.
