MIAMI (AP) -- The Miami Heat will retire former guard Tim Hardaway's No. 10 jersey in a ceremony Oct. 28, immediately prior to the season-opener against the New York Knicks.

It will be the second jersey retired in Heat history: Alonzo Mourning's No. 33 went to the rafters last season.

Heat president Pat Riley said Hardaway is part of the "taproot and foundation for what we hope to be a long tradition of success here in Miami."

Hardaway played 13 NBA seasons, nearly six of those with the Heat. He was a five-time All-Star and also played for Golden State, Dallas, Denver and Indiana during a career where he averaged 17.7 points and 8.2 assists per game.
