Tim Hardaway Jr. tells reporter he doesn't plan to leave the Michigan basketball program
Michigan basketball sophomore Tim Hardaway Jr. is regarded as a player with potential for a career in the NBA one day.
But will that day come sooner rather than later?
In an interview with Grantland.com recently, Hardaway was asked if this season would be his last at Michigan.
"No. We don't know yet. I'm not sure," Hardaway said. "We have to let the season play out. I'm not answering that question, but I can tell you I don't plan on leaving."
Hardaway is averaging 14.5 points per game this season for the 13th-ranked Wolverines, shooting 42.2 percent from the field and 28.1 percent from behind the 3-point line.
ESPN.com NBA Draft analyst Chad Ford currently rates Hardaway as the 18th-best shooting guard in his recent draft rankings, and classifies Hardaway as a "second round/undrafted" prospect.
Hardaway is not currently projected in NBADraft.net's most recent mock draft for 2012. He is, however, listed as a second round pick for the site's early 2013 mock draft.
