Josh Richardson trade talk

NBA Trade Rumors: Josh Richardson tied to Heat, Knicks, and Grizzlies

October 10, 2022

More than a week from now, the 2022–23 NBA regular season will commence, which will shortly start the rumor mill before the NBA Trade Deadline. Whether it escalates because of injuries or tanks, it will happen.

In either case, it’s anticipated that the trading market will be robust leading up to this year’s deadline. Josh Richardson of the San Antonio Spurs is a name that may be of interest to a lot of candidates.

Richardson, whose deal with the Spurs is about to expire, is not anticipated to be renewed when he becomes available for free agency in the summer. It would be a bit of a surprise if he weren’t moved at the deadline.


What team may gain from Josh Richardson

Additionally, a recent rumor claims that Richardson has been connected to teams like the Miami Heat, New York Knicks, and Memphis Grizzlies.

Richardson is an intriguing and adaptable athlete who may be a valuable acquisition for a club looking to strengthen its squad for the playoffs. Despite his career’s recent ups and downs, he is still very much a talent who may provide value to a contender.

Richardson just finished a season in which he averaged 10 points, three rebounds, and 44 percent field goal and 42 percent three-point shooting efficiency. One of the most valuable skills in his arsenal is his versatility as a defender.

Richardson would have to reach that stage for his name to be on the table, though. And it doesn’t appear like they are, at least to begin the year.

Richardson is only a name to keep an eye on until that changes, which it will surely do.
