He scored 20 or more points in four of the Mavs’ seven games against the LA Clippers in the first round of the playoffs, including 28 in Game 2. What will it take to get Hardaway Jr. to sign with the Warriors in August? “That’s up to [president of basketball operations] Bob Myers (laughter),” Tim Hardaway Sr. said Tuesday on 95.7 The Game’s “The Morning Roast” show. “He knows who his agent is — Mark Bartelstein — he has to talk to Mark. “First of all, does he want to come there? Second of all, will he flourish there? Yeah, I think he would. Do they have the money to get him there? There are a lot of variables involved with that.”

Concerning Millsap and Hardaway, Schlenk would not indicate whether he has a price threshold that he’s willing to pay for each. Millsap is an unrestricted free agent. Hardaway is a restricted free agent and the Hawks have more flexibility regarding his contract. “The one thing I’ve maintained is that we are going to be flexible and not sign bad deals,” said Schlenk, admitting he realizes he already sounds like a broken record already in his short tenure with the team. “That means different things for different guys.”

However, there will likely be a list of suitors for the restricted free agent this summer. The Hawks must decide whether to match an offer sheet from another team. “That’s why I have an agent to do all the talk with the organization here and see what best fits for me,” Hardaway said during his exit interview last week. “I love it here. Atlanta brought me here and it really felt like I was starting all over as a rookie when I got here. They made me go through some tough times. They made me mature as a person on and off the court. And made me appreciate the game a whole lot more when I first came in the league. That’s what I’m thankful for.”

Howard, 35, averaged 7.0 points and 8.4 rebounds in 17.3 minutes last season in Philadelphia, his 17th in the NBA.
