Wolverines guard Tim Hardaway Jr. is passing up any more time at Michigan, following in the footsteps of his father and heading to the NBA.

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.
