Heat Richardson Here To Stay

Heat acquire Q-Rich from Wolves
Heat acquire Richardson for Blount - NBA - Yahoo! Canada Sports

Quote:
MIAMI (AP)—Quentin Richardson(notes) was traded for the fourth time since the end of last season, moving from the Minnesota Timberwolves to the Miami Heat on Thursday night in exchange for center Mark Blount(notes).

Richardson, who can play both shooting guard and small forward, is a close friend and workout partner of Heat star Dwyane Wade(notes), the reigning NBA scoring champion.

Richardson averaged 10.2 points last season for New York Knicks. He was first traded to Memphis, then to the Los Angeles Clippers, then Minnesota and now to Miami.

Blount only appeared in 20 games for the Heat last season, averaging 4.0 points. He missed much of the season tending to personal and family matters in Haiti following the death of a close relative.

I seriously think GM's are trading him now just to mess with him.

Traded 4 times in one year = huge disrespect

I have the feeling he will be very motivated to play well as he'll have a huge chip on his shoulder

Richardson isn't that bad of a player.

For the most part he's had a hard time staying healthy in New York, but has still been pretty solid when he's played, as was he in Phoenix and LA.

And guess what GM signed him to a 6 year 44 million dollar deal back in '04?

The deal was slightly obscene yes, but to be fair he was the perfect player for that system and did play the best basketball of his career there. His days in Phoenix probably are the reason for his propensity towards chucking though.

Actually, it wasn't that bad of a deal seeing as he was coming off the best year of his career to date.

Back in the old days of ESPN, there were lots of people advocating the Raps trying to lock him up.

Good move by the Heat. Blount wasn't offering them much of anything.

Well it's an upgrade from Blount, but if I was Q-Rich, I'd use this as motivation for next season.

He could always say there were four teams that really wanted me.

He must be happy that he didn't have to play for Memphis, Minny or the Clippers. Now he's in a great city with a playoff team.
