Hardaway: To match or not to match?

Let's keep this simple as a board a flight to Las Vegas for the summer league.

Late Thursday night, Tim Hardaway Jr. signed a four-year, $71 million offer sheet with the Knicks as a restricted free agent. The Hawks have 48 hours to decide whether to match the offer, about 11 p.m. (ET) on Saturday. Hardaway would earn about $17.75 million annually on the deal. It would make him the highest paid Hawks player next season as he would surpass the $16.9 million of Kent Bazemore.

What do you think? Will the Hawks match? Should the Hawks match?
