Per trusted source Marc Stein of the New York Times, the Dallas Mavericks’ organization is confident in their ability to re-sign Tim Hardaway Jr. this summer in free agency.

Tim Hardaway Jr. has been on a tear ever since his 42 point outing in Detroit on April 29th. Hardaway average 23 points and shot 47-percent from three in the finals 10 games of the season in which the Mavericks went 7-3.

In Dallas’ first round playoffs series so far against the Los Angeles Clippers (Dallas leads series 2-0), Tim Hardaway has been everything the Mavericks have needed him to be alongside Luka Doncic. Timmy is averaging 24.5 points in 35 minutes of play. He is shooting 65% from three-point land, including what seemed like the game clincher in Game 2 to put the Mavericks up 123-116 with 1:03 left in the game.

This report confirms feelings long held by Mavs fans: that Tim Hardaway works well in Dallas.
