ATL SHOOTING Guard: 6’6, 205 lbs; 5th year, Michigan 

NBA Role: long-range gunner

The son of NBA Hall of Famer Tim Hardaway, Junior is a three-point happy, heat-check shooting guard who can ignite after a few swishes; expanded his game a bit in ’16-’17 – THJ is now trusts other aspects of his game, has developed into a more inventive shot-maker off the dribble – can get to the rack by charging closeouts, features an escape dribble pull-up; leans on a decent floater once in the lane; much improved defender under Coach Budenholzer – lockdown in a couple szns?; no longer one-dimensional but has a ways to go to reach full potential – not a huge assist man, improving rebounder; better rotations and focusing on stopping opponents could result in an even bigger role moving forward
