2013 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Tim Hardaway Jr.


Position: Shooting Guard

Size: 6-6, 200

School: Michigan, Junior


Strengths:
  • Ideal size for an NBA two guard
  • Three-point shooting
  • Catch-and-shoot ability
  • Mid-range jumper
  • Doesn't force shots when playing off the ball
  • Straight-line driver with his right hand
  • Finishing through contact
  • Underrated athleticism/explosiveness at times
  • Potential to be solid role player




  • Weaknesses:
  • Creating his own offense
  • Shot selection gets questionable when he has to create for himself
  • Taking defenders off the bounce in iso situations
  • Driving to his left
  • Inconsistent outside shooter
  • Average defender


  • Summary: The knock on Hardaway Jr. is that he doesn't excel with any one particular area of his game. However, he is a solid all-around player and if the former Wolverine lands on the right team, could be a solid reserve. Hardaway Jr. figures to land somewhere in the late first round, but could slip into the second.

    Player Comparison: Brandon Rush. Like Rush, Hardaway Jr. doesn't blow anyone away with his game but has proven to be a solid role player in the right situation. Rush has shown more consistency with his 3-point shooting than Hardaway Jr., and if Tim's kid is going to have a steady NBA career, becoming more reliable with his shooting stroke will help him possibly carve out a career similar to Rush's.
