A source said Jackson wants Tim Hardaway Jr. to play in the Las Vegas summer league despite his solid rookie season, in which he finished fourth in the Rookie of the Year voting. Hardaway did well at last year’s Chicago combine, but still fell to No. 24 in the draft.

“I was proud of his whole season,’’ said his father, Tim Hardaway Sr., who was at the combine as a Heat scout. “He exceeded everyone’s expectations. I was very happy for him. He’s still learning, still has work to do.’’
