MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Penny Hardaway also said Precious Achiuwa will be the perfect fit in Miami with the Heat. He thinks the Heat needed a guy like Achiuwa in the NBA Finals in the bubble.

Also an awesome recruiting tool for the Memphis Tigers.

“It’s an amazing feeling, Hardaway says, " because I know what he’s gone through his entire life. And obviously, we know what happened to him last year. To see him go through all that adversity because all of those teams had a ton of questions about him leaving school and where he was going to be drafted was in jeopardy so that was kind of a light fear as well because you don’t know what they’re thinking even though you do interviews and all of that. To see him go number 2 to the Golden State Warriors out of all teams, who doesn’t wanna play for Golden State with that organization and he got blessed both ways.”
