Sons of former NBA players have been dealt for each other. Tim Hardaway Jr. is expected to be moved to the Atlanta Hawks.

Once the NBA approves the deal, the Hawks will give up the 19th overall pick. The pick turned out to be Jerian Grant, whose father is Harvey Grant.

Some people are shocked that the Knicks were able to get a first round pick in return for Hardaway. This past season, Hardaway had an up-and-down season, and President Phil Jackson considered it a “both good and average.”

He became expendable after the team had Alexey Shved and Ricky Ledo behind Langston Galloway.

With the Hawks, he’ll now compete with veterans Kyle Korver, Thabo Sefolosha, and Kent Bazemore for minute. Much like Korver, he may turn out to be a three-point specialist with them.

Hardaway Jr. was previously linked to the Detroit Pistons. Yet, the Pistons said that they never talked to Jackson about a trade.

In his sophomore season, he averaged 11.5 points, 2.2 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and 0.3 steals per game over 70 appearances.

The Orinda, California native appeared in 81 games, including one start. He also averaged 10.2 points, 1.5 rebounds, 0.8 assists, 0.5 steals, and 0.1 blocks in 23.1 minutes.

The Bowie, Maryland native played collegiate basketball with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. He appeared in 119 games, including 117 starts. He averaged 14.6 points with 2.9 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 1.5 steals, and 0.3 blocks in 36.4 minutes per game.
