ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Tim Hardaway Jr. is joining his teammate Trey Burke and leaving Michigan early to enter the NBA Draft.

Hardaway Jr. announced his decision at a press conference today at the Crisler Center. He just wrapped up his junior season where he averaged 14.5 points and 4.7 rebounds per game.

“It was a hard decision,” said Hardaway “but I tried to make the decision that was best for me. I felt like the NBA was the right decision for me.”

The 6-foot-6 guard started 107 games in three seasons at Michigan. He finished second on the team in scoring the last two seasons, and ranks 18th on Michigan’s all-time scoring list with 1,532 career points.
