Tim Hardaway Jr. leaving Michigan for the NBA
Wolverines guard Tim Hardaway Jr. is passing up any more time at Michigan and following in the footsteps of his father and heading to the NBA.
Hardaway annouced his decision at a news conference on Wednesday. The news was first reported by Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski, who tweeted such Wednesday afternoon.

He joins teammate, sophomore Trey Burke, as the second UM player to opt for early entry. The school is still awaiting decisions from freshmen Mitch McGary and Glenn Robinson III.
Hardaway, a junior, averaged 14.5 points at Michigan this past season, helping the Wolverines reach the national title game. In Jeff Goodman's most recent mock draft, the guard/forward is forecast as a late second-round pick. His 4.7 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game this season were the best numbers of his three-year career in Ann Arbor.
The NBA Draft is June 27.
