Marshall Plumlee

This will help them to bring on restricted free agent Tim Hardaway Jr., to whom they offered a four-year, $71 million deal on Thursday.

Despite being several hours before the deadline, the Atlanta Hawks have decided on the future of guard Tim Hardaway Jr.

The Rockets have been persistent in their pursuit of Anthony, who is willing to waive his no-trade clause to join Chris Paul and James Harden in Houston, league sources told ESPN.

The Hawks have until Saturday to match the Knicks' offer.

1 unusual twist to the Hardaway offer sheet is that the Knicks signed a deal of $52 M Previous year with Courtney Lee and he plays the same stake as Hardaway.

Knicks GM Steve Mills staking his reputation on Tim Hardaway Jr.

The club renounced its rights to free agents Derrick Rose, Sasha Vujacic and Ron Baker to make room for the contract. Hardaway spent two seasons in Atlanta, playing his best last season when he averaged 14.5 points per game. The Hawks will not be following New York's lead.

Hardaway Jr., 25, was drafted by the Knicks in 2013 and was a First-Team All-Rookie selection, but he then struggled once Jackson took over as Knicks president and the triangle offense arrived on Broadway.

The move could mean the Knicks will strengthen their efforts to trade veteran star Carmelo Anthony.

The immediate need for the Knicks, even if they have few illusions of contending this season, is a veteran point guard to serve as a mentor the team's lottery pick - 18-year-old Frank Ntilikina.
