News: 4 days agoRichardson has been traded to the Celtics, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Spin: Making the trade possible, Richardson exercised his $11.6 million player option for the 2021-22 season. This will be his third team in as many seasons after spending his first four years in Miami. Both his tenures in Philadelphia and Dallas were relatively underwhelming compared to expectations, so the 27-year-old will now look for a fresh start in Boston. It remains to be seen how the Celtics' roster will shape out during free agency, but Richardson will presumably provide depth on the wing as one of the first players off the bench. However, depending on how the roster shakes out, he could end up competing for a starting spot.
