It's safe to say that the New York Knicks have been a mess over the past few years in the NBA. The last time they played in the playoffs was during the 2012/2013 season, and their draft picks haven't worked out the way the Knicks were hoping. The one positive thing that happened to them was drafting Kristaps Porzingis in the 2015 NBA Draft, and it seems that Porzingis will be the face of the franchise for the years to come. Earlier this summer, the Knicks parted ways with Phil Jackson as their president of basketball operations and the fans welcomed that news. There are some reports that the front office is looking to also move Carmelo Anthony out of town, as they look to start rebuilding all over again.

On Friday, ESPN reported that Tim Hardaway Jr. might be on his way back to New York.

Hardaway in Knicks uniform again?

Tim Hardaway Jr. was originally drafted by the New York Knicks in 2013. as the 24th overall pick. He played his first two seasons with the Knicks, before he got traded to the Atlanta Hawks. Hardaway spent the last two seasons playing with the Hawks, and last season he averaged 14.5 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game. Hardaway showed flashes of great potential last season, as he became one of the premier scorers for the Atlanta Hawks team. He flourished under tutelage of head coach Mike Budenholzer in Atlanta, but on Friday ESPN reported that he might be on his way back to New York.

Reportedly, Hardaway signed a four-year, $71 million offer sheet with the Knicks but since he's a restricted free-agent, the Hawks will have two days to match this offer.

The Hawks front office stated that keeping Hardaway will be a priority for them this offseason, but it remains to be seen can they match the offer that the Knicks made. If they don't, Hardaway will be back where it all started for him, and he and Porzingis could be a fun duo to watch next season.

Olynyk in Miami for the next four years

After re-signing Dion Waiters earlier this week, the Miami Heat keep on improving their roster. They've already freed up major cap space after waiving Chris Bosh, and ESPN reported on Friday that the Heat have acquired Kelly Olynyk. Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported that Olynyk has signed a four-year deal worth around $50 million.

Olynyk spent all of his first four seasons in the NBA with the Boston Celtics, and last season he averaged 9.0 points and 4.8 rebounds per game.

He solidified himself as a solid three-point shooter as he connected on 35% of his shots behind the arc.
