  • Malachi Richardson: Signs overseas

    Richardson agreed to a contract Saturday with Israeli club Hapoel Holon, Lior Hai of Eurobasket.com reports.

    The 23-year-old was unable to garner interest from NBA teams after competing for the Warriors in the Las Vegas Summer League, so he'll head overseas in an attempt to revive his stalling career. A first-round selection out of Syracuse in 2016, Richardson logged 70 regular-season appearances between the Kings and Raptors across three years in the NBA, averaging 2.8 points in 8.9 minutes on 35.8 percent shooting from the field and 30.1 percent shooting from three-point range.

  • 76ers' Malachi Richardson: Waived Thursday

    Richardson (knee) was waived by the 76ers on Thursday, Derek Bodner of The Athletic reports.

    To make room for the acquisition of James Ennis from Houston, the 76ers will let Richardson go. He's appeared in 22 games this season, averaging 1.4 points across 4.7 minutes. It's possible he lands on a rebuilding team or finds significant run in the G League.

  • Raptors' Malachi Richardson: Not playing Tuesday

    Richardson (knee) is listed as out for Tuesday's game against the 76ers.

    Richardson has made three total appearances for the Raptors since the calendar flipped to 2019. The sore right knee has prevented Richardson from dressing in a few of those contests, but his status as a non-rotation player has also been at the root of a good chunk of those absences. He'll likely be destined for the G League's Raptors 905 once cleared to play again.

  • 76ers' Malachi Richardson: Dealt to Philly

    Richardson (knee) was traded to the Sixers on Wednesday in exchange for cash considerations, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    The Sixers also nabbed a 2022 second-round pick and the draft rights to Emir Preldzic in the deal, which was essentially a small salary dump for the Raptors. At this point, it's unclear if the Sixers intend to keep Richardson or waive him in the near future.

  • Raptors' Malachi Richardson: Won't play Sunday

    Richardson (knee) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Clippers.

    Richardson has been nursing a sore right knee for about a week, which has kept him out of action for both the Raptors and their G League affiliate, Raptors 905. At least for the parent club, Richardson won't be a member of the rotation when he returns to full strength.

  • Raptors' Malachi Richardson: Missing another game

    Richardson (knee) won't be available for the G League Raptors 905's game against the Capital City Go-Go on Wednesday.

    Richardson (knee) will not play Monday against Westchester.

    Richardson is dealing with a knee injury and will join Jordan Howard (groin) on Monday's inactive list. The former Syracuse standout has been back and forth from the Raptors to the 905 for much of the season, but he hasn't seen any meaningful run at the NBA level.

  • Raptors' Malachi Richardson: Back with Raptors 905

    Richardson was assigned to the Raptors 905 for Thursday's game against the Swarm, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.

    Given that the Raptors are potentially very light on depth for Thursday's game with C.J. Miles (hip) questionable and Kawhi Leonard (rest) and OG Anunoby (personal) out, an opportunity for Richardson to get some quality minutes with Toronto may have been open, but he will remain on assignment for Thursday's G League contest.

  • Raptors' Malachi Richardson: Scores 29 despite loss

    Richardson scored 29 points (11-21 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 3-4 FT) to go along with eight rebounds, five assists and two steals in the loss Friday to Westchester.

    Richardson and backcourt mate Jordan Loyd combined to score 63 points, but it wasn't enough to offset a balanced scoring attack from Westchester.

    Richardson delivered 30 points (9-22 FG, 7-16 3Pt, 5-6 FT), six rebounds, three assists and one steal across 39 minutes in Saturday's 102-89 home loss to the Red Claws.

    Yes, Richardson attempted 16 three pointers in his fourth G League game of the season, which not surprisingly was a season high. That said, Richardson attempted 15 bombs versus Erie back in early November. The 6'6" guard has played 19 games with the parent club Raptors, averaging 1.4 points and five minutes per contest. It is unclear when Richardson might return to the Raptors.
