Scouting Rumors

Call it a “sneaky hire.” In moving to replace college scouts Walker Russell and Kristian Petesic, the Knicks added two talent evaluators without making an announcement. The Post reported Thursday former Heat rival and 2022 Hall of Famer Tim Hardaway being one of the hires. According to an NBA source, the other hire by Knicks president Leon Rose was an out-of-the-box addition in Vince Baldwin — a longtime Nike talent scout who has extensive contacts across his years in the high school and college ranks.
Hall-of-Famer Tim Hardaway has been with the Knicks as a scout for most of the season, a source told SNY NBA Insider Ian Begley. Marc Berman of the New York Post first reported on Thursday that Hardaway was hired by the Knicks, and he has been interviewing prospects at the NBA Combine. Begley adds that he was scouting college players for most of the year. Hardaway was a 14-year vet and five-time All-Star and will enter the Hall of Fame later this year.
