Richardson, along with the 36th overall pick in the 2020 Draft, has been traded from the 76ers to the Mavericks in exchange for Seth Curry, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Richardson will head to Dallas, where he can fill a significant role on the wing. He could start at shooting guard or small forward next to Tim Hardaway Jr., which would presumably shift Dorian Finney-Smith to the bench. Richardson saw 30.8 minutes per game last season with the 76ers, and that's about what we can expect from him with the Mavericks. In 2019-20, he averaged 13.7 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.9 assists.
Richardson posted 14 points (2-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 8-9 FT), five assists and three rebounds in 36 minutes during Sunday's 110-106 series-ending loss to Boston. The 76ers have nothing to show once again after falling at the first playoff hurdle. Richardson came into the season hoping to build on the previous year's 16.6 points per game, but his scoring average fell to 13.7 points and he put up the second-worst three-point shooting (34.1 percent) of his career. Still only 26 years of age, Richardson has time on his side, but he'll need to bounce back to his 2018-19 level to be anything more than roster filler for fantasy purposes.
Richardson scored 18 points (7-17 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 1-1 FT) while adding six rebounds and two assists in 38 minutes during Monday's 109-101 Game 1 loss against the Celtics. Although Richardson had a 34-point explosion just over a week ago, Monday's game still represented his third-highest offensive output in his last 15 games, dating back to February. Richardson won't be anything more than Philly's third-best offensive option -- behind Joel Embiid and Tobias Harris -- in the playoffs, so keep expectations tempered moving forward.
Richardson (rest) managed 10 points (3-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one block in 24 minutes during Wednesday's 125-121 loss to the Raptors. Richardson rejoined the rotation following a one-game absence for rest purposes. With Philadelphia locked into sixth in the Eastern Conference, it shouldn't be that surprising if coach Brett Brown opts to limit the playing time of Richardson and the rest of the starters during Friday's regular season finale versus Houston.
Richardson (rest) will play Wednesday against the Raptors, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. As expected, after getting Tuesday's contest against the Suns off for rest, Richardson will return to the lineup for the 76ers' second-to-last seeding game. In the bubble, Richardson is averaging 15.4 points, 2.6 assists, 1.2 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 34.2 minutes.
