ATLANTA — Now that he’s added Tim Hardaway Jr., Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer has narrowed his focus on re-signing All-Star forward Paul Millsap and starting guard DeMarre Carroll. NBA teams can begin negotiating with free agents at 12 a.m. Wednesday, and Budenholzer believes the acquisition of Hardaway will help convince Millsap and Carroll to stay in Atlanta. “Our most important thing is keeping our team together, so the more time I have to spend time with Paul and DeMarre and our players, I welcome that,” Budenholzer said.
