3. Josh Richardson, San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs are in complete fire sale mode. Anyone who suited up for the team last year and didn’t pass out from exhaustion on the court is available for the right price. Richardson certainly qualifies and has a skillset that the Raptors could use from a bench gunner.
A tremendous bench scorer with Miami who bounced around with contenders like Miami, Philadelphia, and Dallas in his prime, Richardson performed better with San Antonio than in his brief stint with Boston. As he ages, transitioning to a bench gunner role for a team like Toronto might suit him best.
Josh Richardson may help the Toronto Raptors offensively.
Richardson made 41% of his 3-point attempts, but that was his only season post-2016-17 in which he nailed more than 38% of his shots from deep. Despite his production, Richardson has been on five different teams in four seasons. There might be a reason for that.
Richardson might be a trade option to watch later in the season, as injuries and ineffectiveness will inevitably have Toronto looking for some upgrades at the deadline. Richardson may not be ready to lead the bench, but his ability to put the ball in the basket has clearly had a positive impact on multiple contenders.
