      Hawks guard Jason Richardson to retire from NBA

      Guard Jason Richardson has decided to retire from the NBA, Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports reports. Richardson inked a non-guaranteed deal with the Hawks last month due to the team's status as a contender, but after enduring some discomfort in his right knee over the past 4-to-5 days, an MRI revealed bone spurs in the knee. Considering he sat out the 2013-14 season due to injury and logged 52 games combined in the past three campaigns, yet another ailment was seemingly setting up the 34-year-old guard for another injury-plagued season, if he made the Hawks' roster at all. Known for his dunking prowess, Richardson will end his career No. 16 on the all-time three-pointers made list with 1,608, while providing 17.1 points (on 44 percent shooting), 5.0 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.9 threes, and 1.2 steals in 34 minutes per contest.

      76ers guard Jason Richardson wants to play next season

      76ers guard Jason Richardson is in his 13th NBA season and if it were up to him, he'd play at least one more season, reports the Boston Globe. "It's been an amazing experience and I'm enjoying it," Richardson said. "I never lost the love [for the game] and that lets you know that I didn't play for a paycheck. I played to play basketball. If I would have never played in an NBA game, I would have played in a YMCA somewhere. Just being around the game so long and how hard I work, and I came over so many obstacles to make it here, why stop now?" Richardson has been limited to 12 games this season after recovering from left knee surgery and a foot fracture and he said he wants to play as long as his body can hold up. "It depends on the situation, what team wants me. How my knee holds up. God willing, maybe two or three more years," he said. "I have to keep telling myself [I'll be better]. I'm my toughest critic. I can't sleep at night when we don't win and I play bad. I have to keep telling myself I've only played 10 games in two years. Hey, your legs might not be there some nights, so do something else to help this team out. But I am having fun. It's great being back. I'm not what I once was, but I still think I can help a team. I've still got something left."
