Richardson finished with 14 points (5-15 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 1-4 FT), three rebounds and one assist across 35 minutes during the Raptors' 82-68 loss to the Cavaliers in a Las Vegas Summer League quarterfinal-round contest Sunday.
Richardson co-led the starting five in scoring with Alfonzo McKinnie while churning out his second 14-point effort in as many days. The 22-year-old seemingly made an airtight case for a training camp invite with his play in Las Vegas, as he was one of the Raptors' most reliable sources of offense during six summer league games.
Richardson posted 14 points (5-12 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, two assists and one steal across 35 minutes during the Raptors' 87-84 overtime victory over the Hornets in a Las Vegas Summer League contest Saturday.
The 2016 first-round pick is trying to jump-start a career that's been mostly stuck in neutral over its first two seasons, campaigns in which Richardson has logged a combined 48 games of action with the Kings and Raptors. The 22-year-old has averaged 12.6 points (on 44.0 percent shooting), 1.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists across 26.0 minutes over five summer league games, seemingly making a case for a training camp invite that would allow him to continue making a case for a rotational wing role during the coming campaign.
Richardson had 17 points (5-12 FG, 4-10 3PT, 3-4 FT) and three rebounds in Monday's summer league loss to the Thunder.
Richardson has struggled to find his footing at the NBA level since entering the league, and he spent considerable time in the G League last season. While he's off to a decent start in Las Vegas, Richardson is unlikely to be more than a deep bench player for the Raptors in 2018-19.
Richardson finished Sunday's 103-92 summer league loss to the Timberwolves with 15 points (5-8 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and two assists across 20 minutes.
Despite coming off the bench, Richardson was one of the most effective offensive threats Sunday, knocking down an efficient 63.5 percent of his field goal attempts and 80 percent of his shots from beyond the arc. He didn't provide much else across the box score and did turn the ball over twice, though either way, the offensive display was impressive. After being traded to the Raptors from the Kings at the trade deadline last season, Richardson saw action in just one game as he wasn't apart of the regular rotation. With not much roster turnover, Richardson will likely spend a lot of time in the G-League once again in 2018-19.
Richardson (wrist) played eight minutes for Raptors 905 in their Game 2 loss to the Austin Spurs in the G League championship series. He finished with two points (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) in the contest.
The loss spells an end to the G League season, allowing Richardson to potentially rejoin the NBA team for its postseason run. It's unclear if Richardson will actually be recalled, however, given that he recently got over a wrist injury and largely failed to distinguish himself during his time with the 905. In 18 G League games this season, Richardson averaged 8.8 points (on 32.9 percent shooting from the field), 3.9 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.2 steals in 23.6 minutes per contest.
