And as far as his future, coach Derek Fisher said, “Well, he is under contract for next year …” But he expanded. “Timmy has a great deal of potential as a young guard. He is showing more skill in handling the basketball and playing defense,” Fisher said. “Tim has done well under the circumstances,” Fisher added, noting Hardaway began the season No. 3 on the two-guard depth chart. “So there weren’t a lot of minutes and lot of opportunities. Plus, a new way of playing, a new style of playing, but I think he’s tried his best to adjust and he’s taken the defensive end more seriously. New York Post

Tim Hardaway Jr. has seen his play take a drastic drop from his rookie season, but he survived the trade deadline — perhaps more because of his struggles than the Knicks desire to keep him. He reportedly was included in a package the team tried to put together in a deal for Goran Dragic, who wound up with the Heat. "I don't follow any of that stuff," Hardaway said before the deadline. "I control what I can control - that's playing for this team. … I'm happy to be here. Hopefully, I'll be here for a long time." Bergen Record

A source said Anthony and Hardaway were once closer, texting each other often during July’s free agency as Melo pondered his decision. But they no longer are as tight. “We’re brothers,’’ Hardaway said. “They get into heat-of-the-moment things and make up afterward. I looked at Melo as a mentor since I’ve been here.’’ New York Post

Hardaway’s agent, Mark Bartelstein, was furious at the accusation there’s a serious rift between Anthony and Hardaway. “There’s no ill will between Tim and Carmelo — it’s just the opposite,” Bartelstein said. “Carmelo has helped out Tim a lot, they have a great relationship and Carmelo has been very supportive. It’s very hurtful and untrue.’’ New York Post

Several Knicks, in addition to Hardaway, are at odds with Anthony and believe he's not playing team basketball. Sources said players voiced their displeasure with Anthony this past weekend, telling him he shoots too much, doesn't move or pass the ball, and only plays defense when he feels like it. Sources said the most tension exists between Anthony and Hardaway as they haven't cared for one another almost since Hardaway joined the team last season, with each player believing the other shoots too much and doesn't care about defense. Sources said Hardaway was also bothered by the favorable treatment Anthony received under last year's coach, Mike Woodson. ESPN.com
