Where will Dallas Mavericks free agent Tim Hardaway Jr. sign?
Hardaway Jr. transformed his game since joining the Mavs as part of the Kristaps Porzingis trade in 2019. The 6’5 has become an elite shooter by improving off the catch. Over the last two seasons combined, THJ has hit 39.4 percent of his 1,042 3-point attempts. He plays his best flanking Luka Doncic and is the perfect complement to the Mavericks superstar.
Hardaway Jr. opted into an $18.975 million player option last offseason to remain in Dallas. There will be mutual interest in signing him to a new contract this summer. The Mavs have their sights set on re-signing THJ and bringing in a marquee free agent. Dallas’ top target was Kyle Lowry, but he appears to be destined for Miami. Can they land another big name?
Prediction: Tim Hardaway Jr. re-signs with the Dallas Mavericks
Hardaway Jr. has found a fantastic fit next to Luka Doncic in Dallas. The 29-year-old has been in the playoffs two straight years after making just two appearances in his first six seasons. THJ is an important floor spacer and third scorer for the Mavericks. They will bring him back this offseason while upgrading their roster with other free agents.
The Dallas Mavericks need to sign a marquee name. Will they make it happen? Fans should stay tuned and continue back to The Smoking Cuban for analysis on every offseason move the franchise makes.
