PLAYER RANGE: NBA Contributor - NBA Starter
PLAYER COMPARISON: Cam Thomas
UNDENIABLE SKILL: N/A
STRENGTHS: Hardy can be a good scorer and tough shot maker. He’s crafty with the dribble and can contort his way to the basket. Hardy is pretty good in catch and shoot situations as well as on the move.
CONCERNS: Hardy lacks the disposition of that of a true point/lead guard. Oftentimes, he can dribble too high which may inhibit his ability to get by defenders resulting in difficult shots with higher frequency than need be. Doesn’t work hard to get around screens on defense and get hung up on them. Picks up too many touch fouls by reaching in. Makes questionable decisions with his passes and shot selection. Turnovers are high compared to the ratio in which he makes an assist.
