Is it a bad practice to have a same model for both

I'd say yes. It can certainly be fine if the structure maps directly to a database object. But often enough you encounter responses that contain pagination, nested JSON objects or the like that do not map directly to a database.
I'd say it's better to have two models. That way you do not have to change your backend if the data representation on the network layer changes for some reason.
