Following Saturday’s 127-117 home win vs. the New Orleans Pelicans, Dallas Mavericks head coach Jason Kidd discussed rookie Jaden Hardy’s development and also his fit next to superstar Luka Doncic (averaging 18.0 MPG/15.0 PPG/70.6% FG/80.0% 3-PT/100% FT/1.0 SPG in last two games).
(via Dallas Mavericks):
Reporter: “What part of Jaden Hardy’s game have you seen grown the most since he’s arrived in Dallas?”
Kidd: “Every part. He’s improved in every area. He’s worked extremely hard. He’s learning what it means to be a pro, you can see the product on the floor in a sense of he’s not scared. He’s a young man surrounded by a megastar, and he feels like he fits right in. So that’s kinda cool.”
