Har­d­away ready for sec­ond chance with Knicks

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS - BY BRIAN MA­HONEY

Tim Har­d­away Jr. thought that with Phil Jack­son gone, maybe there was a chance some­day he could come back to New York.

Even he was sur­prised it was this soon. With Jack­son and his tri­an­gle of­fence gone, the Knicks reached back to their past to sign Har­d­away, a for­mer first-round pick who didn’t fit un­der Jack­son but they hope can flour­ish with­out him.

“I def­i­nitely left with a bad taste in my mouth and just to have that op­por­tu­nity to come back here is very rare, so you’ve got to make the most of that,” Har­d­away said Mon­day.

Jack­son and the Knicks parted ways last month af­ter three dis­mal sea­sons and were quiet at the start of free agency un­til sign­ing Har­d­away to an of­fer sheet for a four-year, $71 con­tract.
