The Mavericks sent THJ their best wishes on Tuesday morning.
Hardaway Jr. shared his birthday vibes on Instagram with a hilarious picture. See his post below.
Best wishes go out to Tim Hardaway Jr. on his special day. He has been outstanding during his time in Dallas. Many viewed him as a throw-in piece of the Kristaps Porzingis trade, but Hardaway Jr. has been the Mavericks’ third-best player over that time.
He will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. Expect Dallas to have plenty of interest in bringing the wing back.
Hardaway Jr. will continue to come off the bench. He and Jalen Brunson are forming an outstanding bench backcourt duo. The Mavericks are opting for more defense in their starting five, but THJ is often part of their closing lineup. Expect him to play around 30 minutes per game as the Mavs look to keep climbing the standings.
