    Getty Tim Hardaway Jr. makes a no-look pass in a game against the Houston Rockets In a game against the Golden State Warriors on Jan. 25, the Dallas Mavericks were blown out by 38 points. While it was a frustrating loss for the Mavs, what’s worse is that they lost a key piece in Tim Hardaway Jr. to injury.  The Mavericks announced that Hardaway Jr. suffered a fracture of the fifth metatarsal on his left foot. While it’s still unclear exactly how long he’ll be sidelined, an injury like this could potentially keep him out for several weeks.  In the second quarter of that game, Hardaway Jr. went down awkwardly after driving to the rim and immediately grabbed his foot in pain. From there, he ultimately took his free throw attempts after being fouled but then had to be helped off the court.  Mavericks Tim Hardaway, Jr. came up hobbling on his left leg, hard to tell but it may have been injured on the plant as he was going up to the rim #MFFL pic.twitter.com/TED93C10LO — Kevin...
    Getty Tim Hardaway Jr. watches a 3-pointer drop against the Minnesota Timberwolves. In their second game of the season, the Dallas Mavericks looked like a completely different team than in their opener. Following their 26-point loss to the Atlanta Hawks, they beat the Toronto Raptors by eight points.  The Mavs looked much better defensively, holding the Raptors to under 100 points. Additionally, their offense was much more efficient, as they converted on 41.8% of their shots.  To Luka Doncic, the difference maker against Toronto was simply energy. “That first game, we didn’t make shots. Our energy wasn’t there,” said Doncic postgame. “That shouldn’t happen, and I think today, like I said, we stick together. We push each other.” The player that elevated Dallas most against the Raptors was Tim Hardaway Jr., who had an outstanding second half offensively. Without his contributions, the Mavericks may not have pulled out the win. What does Hardaway Jr. mean to this team? Making an Impact Against Toronto, Hardaway Jr. was on fire from beyond the arc.

    Getty Tim Hardaway Jr. celebrates in a recent playoff game against the LA Clippers. In the modern NBA, the best teams have a roster headlined by a star-studded duo or trio. For the Dallas Mavericks, Luka Doncic is the superstar at the helm, with a core supporting cast of Tim Hardaway Jr. and Kristaps Porzingis.  Porzingis is the clear second option behind Doncic, with Hardaway Jr. being the team’s third-best player. With that in mind, is Hardaway Jr. a good enough third option for a team that has championship aspirations? For most of last season, he certainly looked the part. It was his best season as a member of the Mavericks, providing them efficient scoring as a starter or off the bench. Shooting & Size One of the better 3-point shooters in the NBA, Hardaway Jr. knocked down 207 from beyond the arc last season, which was eighth-most of any player. In a league that continues to shift towards more 3-point shots being taken, having a player like Hardaway is crucial.  A 39.1% shooter from deep, Hardaway Jr....
    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — The Dallas Mavericks are bringing back shooting guard Tim Hardaway Jr. on a $72 million, four-year contract, a person with knowledge of the deal said Monday, August 2. The agreement came just as NBA free agency opened. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because contracts can’t be signed until Friday, August 6. Hardaway came to the Mavericks from the New York Knicks before the 2019 trade deadline in a deal headlined by Kristaps Porzingis. The son of former NBA player Tim Hardaway became a consistent scoring threat alongside star point guard Luka Doncic.

(Photo by Alika Jenner/Getty Images) After struggling from 3-point range in the weeks after the trade, Hardaway had the two most accurate seasons of his career in his first two full seasons with Dallas. Hardaway shot 39.8% during the pandemic-interrupted 2019-20 season and 39.1% last season. Hardaway will have...

The Dallas Mavericks have a big offseason ahead. Luka Doncic may only be done with his third NBA season at 22 years old, but it’s crystal-clear he’s ready to start contending now. Beyond those two higher-profile targets, however, this free-agency class doesn’t have many game-changers who would fit well with Doncic, unless Kawhi Leonard’s experience against Luka in a second straight postseason, coupled with a disappointing playoff demise for his Clippers, somehow convinced him to leave his home in LA for Dallas (not happening). Instead of going all in on an aging co-star like Lowry, or risking the Atlanta Hawks matching an offer sheet for Collins, maybe spreading the wealth on more complementary pieces is the more prudent, albeit less exciting path. Richaun Holmes is the type of athletic, physical big who’d be perfect alongside Doncic, and he’ll be nowhere near as expensive. That kind of addition, and others in that same echelon, would...
    Foundation raises $1 billion to fight anti-Asian hate Feds accidentally seized computer belonging to Rudy Giuliani’s ex-wife during NYC raids, lawyer says © Provided by CBS Sports Dallas Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle recalls vividly reaching out to Tim Hardaway Jr. early in the season to ask him about coming off the bench. Hardaway started in Dallas' first 19 games, and prior to this year was a regular starter in over 83 percent of the Mavericks games since being traded there in 2019. But Dallas was in the midst of a six-game losing streak, staring at an 8-12 record to start the season. Something needed to change, and Carlisle wanted to shake things up. "I called him one night when I found out Maxi [Kleber] was going to be a go for the next game the next day," Carlisle said. "I think it was the second game in January we played at home against Golden State, and I said 'Tim, Maxi is going to be back tomorrow,' and he goes, 'Coach you don't even need to ask. I'm fine...
    MIAMI (AP) — Tim Hardaway Jr. spent many nights as a kid shooting on the Miami Heat court, a perk that came with his father being a star guard for the team. Clearly, it still feels like home. READ MORE: DeSantis Sets Special Election For Hastings Seat Hardaway Jr. made 10 3-pointers and scored 36 points, Luka Doncic added 23 points and the Dallas Mavericks moved up to the No. 5 spot in the Western Conference by topping the short-handed Miami Heat 127-113 on Tuesday night. Duncan Robinson and Goran Dragic each scored 19 for Miami, which remained No. 6 in the Eastern Conference. The Heat played without Jimmy Butler, ruled out about two hours before the game with flu-like symptoms — not anything related to the coronavirus, the team said. Trevor Ariza scored 16 of his 18 points in the first quarter for Miami. Gabe Vincent and Kendrick Nunn each scored 14 and Bam Adebayo finished with 11 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds for the Heat.

    Luka Doncic had one of the best shooting nights of his career against the Portland Trailblazers. Doncic shot 8/9 from beyond the arc in a 37-point performance to blow Damian Lillard’s Blazers out of the water. It took Doncic only three quarters to leave his mark on the game, being rested for the entire fourth quarter with Dallas holding a 34-point lead. However, it could have been a 37-point lead. The last possession of the third quarter saw Tim Hardaway Jr. run an isolation play for himself. He took the ball up the left side of the key and then attempted a step-back buzzer-beating three. But the shot was completely off the mark, resulting in an airball. Luka had some fun with Hardaway after the miss. Doncic was obviously poking fun at Hardaway, who joined Dallas midway through his rookie season from New York in the trade that got Kristaps Porzingis to Dallas. He was maligned in New York for his inefficient scoring, but that has tempered under the Doncic-led offense in Dallas. However, moments like these remind...
    In a recent article, Sports Illustrated staff shared a list of trades that they want to see happen during the 2020-21 NBA season. These include the hypothetical deal that would send Dallas Mavericks small forward Tim Hardaway Jr. to the Boston Celtics before the 2021 trade deadline. In the proposed trade scenario by Sports Illustrated‘s Michael Pina, the Celtics would be sending an unprotected 2021 first-round pick to the Mavericks in exchange for Hardaway Jr. As of now, the Mavericks haven’t shown a strong indication that they are planning to move Hardaway Jr. before the 2021 trade deadline. However, if they struggle to consistently win games and wouldn’t find their way back in the playoff race, it might be best for them to trade the veteran wingman instead of taking the risk of losing him in the 2021 free agency without getting anything in return. By sending him to Boston, they would be receiving a future first-round selection that they could use as a trade chip to find a third star that would complement Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis in...
    The Houston Rockets may have only recently acquired Victor Oladipo in the four-way blockbuster deal that sent James Harden to the Brooklyn Nets, but a recent list of trade ideas hinted that the Dallas Mavericks could hypothetically make a move for him prior to the March 25 deadline. As explained by Bleacher Report’s Zach Buckley on Wednesday, Luka Doncic is posting MVP-caliber numbers for the Mavericks and is averaging close to a triple-double with 27.3 points, 9.8 rebounds, and 9.9 assists per game. However, Dallas is in the bottom half of the Western Conference, with their 8-9 record placing them 10th out of 15 teams. As such, the team might be in need of a third top-tier player to play alongside Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis in the starting lineup. In the hypothetical deal, the Mavericks could acquire Oladipo from the Rockets for a package that includes starting shooting guard Tim Hardaway Jr., rookie wingman Josh Green, and a top-seven protected first-round pick in the 2025 draft. This transaction, as noted, could be plausible considering how recent reports suggested that Oladipo...
    Denver Nuggets guard Jamal Murray was tossed Monday night during a 117-113 win over the Mavericks. For reasons I simply don’t understand, Murray thought it was a good idea to hammer Tim Hardaway Jr. in the groin while getting off of the floor. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) Obviously, the refs didn’t like that and they sent him walking to the locker room.

Murray stumbled backward after the pair collided as Denver was setting up on offense. Murray got up and reached between Hardaway’s legs with his right arm, prompting Hardaway to double over. The official closest to the contact blew the whistle to stop play with 4:51 left in the third quarter and conferred with the other referees. The initial call was a foul on Murray, and it was upgraded to a flagrant-two foul on a video review. Murray had 16 points when he was ejected, his same team-leading total from halftime.

    Jamal Murray made notorious groin assassin Draymond Green look subtle Monday night when he took a swing at Mavericks guard Tim Hardaway Jr. Unlike Green — whose antics in the 2016 Western Conference finals at least required debate over intent — Murray’s third-quarter attack was impossible to dispute as anything other than blatant aggression; the point guard was assessed a Flagrant 2 foul and ejected for the incident. Murray could also face a fine from the league. Hardaway gathered himself and went on a personal tear to close the quarter: After sinking both technical free throws, he made two 3-pointers and dunked in just over a minute of game time. That’s a 10-point surge, with the jewels compromised. MORE: NBA All-Star Game might be back on Fans on social media had some fun with the clip of Murray and Hardaway. Here’s a selection of what was produced:
    Denver Nuggets guard Jamal Murray was ejected for hitting Tim Hardaway Jr. low during Monday night’s contest. On Monday night, the Denver Nuggets were looking to rise up to fourth place in the Western Conference with a win against the Dallas Mavericks. The victory didn’t come easy, as one of their star players was tossed from game. In the fourth quarter, Nuggets guard Jamal Murray was knocked down on the court after a collision with Mavericks swingman Tim Hardaway Jr. As Murray got up off the floor, he hit Hardaway directly in the groin. After a video review, the point guard was handed a Flagrant 2 foul and ejected from the game.

    Despite the improvements they made in the 2020 offseason, the Dallas Mavericks are still currently not viewed on the same level as other Western Conference powerhouse teams like the Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Clippers. In order to have a legitimate chance of fully dominating the loaded Western Conference and winning the 2021 NBA championship title, the Mavericks should continue to find ways to surround Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis with quality players. In a recent article, Dalton Trigg of Sports Illustrated discussed how Dallas would be able to land Victor Oladipo and Myles Turner from the Indiana Pacers before the 2021 trade deadline. To acquire Oladipo and Turner, Trigg suggested that the Mavericks could offer a package centered on Tim Hardaway Jr. to the Pacers. In the proposed scenario, Dallas would be sending Hardaway Jr., one of James Johnson and Dwight Powell, a young player, and some future draft compensation to Indiana in exchange for Oladipo and Turner. “People who like this current Mavs roster, including the Mavs front office themselves, might think that’s giving up a...
    Since the 2020 offseason started, rumors have been swirling around All-Star power forward Blake Griffin and his future with the Detroit Pistons. He may remain committed to the Pistons but with the team heading into an inevitable rebuild, most people see him as an odd fit on their roster. Despite his injury history and lucrative contract, Griffin is still expected to receive plenty of interest from teams that are in dire need of a frontcourt boost and additional star power on their roster. One of the potential suitors of Griffin before the 2021 trade deadline is the Dallas Mavericks. According to Zach Buckley of Bleacher Report, the Mavericks may consider sending a package that includes Tim Hardaway Jr., James Johnson, and a 2025 top-eight protected first-round pick to the Pistons in exchange for Griffin. “While some might see Blake Griffin as damaged goods, others will note he’s literally a single season removed from averaging 24.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 5.4 assists and 2.5 threes. Care to venture a guess as to how many players compiled a 24/7/5/2 line in 2019-20? Two:...
    The Dallas Mavericks were among the teams that managed to surpass the expectations from them last season. However, to challenge powerhouse teams like the Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Clippers for the Western Conference supremacy, the Mavericks must be aware that they need to surround Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis with more star power. One of the potential trade targets for Dallas this offseason is Zach LaVine of the Chicago Bulls. According to Brett Siegel of NBA Analysis Network, the Mavericks could offer a package that includes Tim Hardaway Jr., 2022 and 2025 first-round picks, and 2021 and 2023 second-round picks to the Bulls in exchange for LaVine. The All-Star shooting guard is yet to officially demand a trade from the Bulls but Siegel believes that at this point in his career, he would definitely love to play for a team that has real aspirations to win the NBA championship title. “Proving that he can be more than a human-highlight tape dunking on people, Zach LaVine has completely refined his game and has turned into a potential All-Star...
    In the aftermath of rumors suggesting that the Dallas Mavericks might be interested in trading for Zach LaVine, a recent list of trade ideas suggested that the team could acquire the high-scoring Chicago Bulls guard for a package centered on Tim Hardaway Jr. According to Fansided’s Pippen Ain’t Easy, the main “problem” with hypothetical transactions involving LaVine and the Mavericks is not salary matching, but rather the lack of a “true valuable trade chip” that Dallas could offer Chicago in order to acquire the 25-year-old. As such, the publication pointed out that the Mavs would need to move some future draft picks to sweeten the deal — in this case, offering a package including Hardaway, the No. 18 pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, and two future first-rounders. As further explained by Pippen Ain’t Easy, Hardaway is probably the only Mavericks player that the organization would have no problem shipping to another team so they can match LaVine’s salary. During the 2019-20 season, the second-generation star averaged 15.8 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 1.9 assists while proving to be a fairly...
    Will Buddy Hield complete the Mavericks' 'Big Three' next season? Despite surpassing the expectations from them in the 2019-20 NBA season, the Dallas Mavericks are still expected to continue to find ways to upgrade their roster this fall. Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis may have blossomed into All-Star caliber players, but in order to have a realistic chance of fully dominating the Western Conference and winning the NBA championship title, the Mavericks obviously need more star power on their team. In the past months, they have already been linked to several big names who are expected to be available on the trade market in the 2020 offseason, including Buddy Hield of the Sacramento Kings. According to Dalton Trigg of the Sports Illustrated, the Mavericks could use Tim Hardaway Jr. as the main trade chip to acquire Hield from the Kings this fall. “If Hardaway Jr. decides to opt in to his $19 million player option, Dallas could, in theory, send his expiring contract, a filler player (perhaps Delon Wright or Justin Jackson), and the No. 31 pick in this year’s...
    Paul George was on a mission in Game 5, and Tim Hardaway, Jr.’s foul only enraged him more George was at the brunt of many jokes on social media after his performance in the Clippers’ first four playoff games against the Dallas Mavericks, even earning the nickname ‘Pandemic P’ in response to his self-coined ‘Playoff P’ epithet. PG showed exactly why he was acquired for such a lofty price from Oklahoma City last summer, joining forces with Kawhi Leonard as the Clippers ran away with Game 5. In the third quarter, George attempted a drive to the rim that was sure to finish in the same way many of PG’s endeavors did on the night — a made bucket. Hardaway, Jr. wasn’t about to let that happen without a hard challenge, however, and in a throwback to a different time, leveled George on his way to the basket rather than allow an easy basket.Paul George wasn’t thrilled with Hardaway, Jr.’s late challengePG had to be held back after Hardaways foul ???? pic.twitter.com/HejxpGLu9y — Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) August 26, 2020 ...
