Expert Analysis
"To say that Richardson has a nose for the ball would be a gross understatement -- he is always around the ball and pursues it on every possession. Richardson came to DePaul as an undersized, back-to-the-basket player, and has evolved into an off guard who can step out and shoot the perimeter shot.

Richardson was at his best in college along the baseline, where he could slash to the hole and was very difficult to keep off of the glass. Last season, he spent more time on the wing and improved his shooting, but it is imperative that he improve his mid-range game and ballhandling to be effective in the NBA." -- ESPN's Jay Bilas
