G - DAL
Josh Richardson, and the Sixers' No. 36 pick, is going to Dallas and Seth Curry is headed to Philadelphia in the deal, per Adrian Wojnarowski.
Dallas was looking for help with their perimeter defense and Richardson could be the answer. The 6-5 Richardson averaged 13.7 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 2.9 assists per game last season while shooting 34-percent from three. He could be a fantasy asset next season if he can improve his defensive prowess and continue to shoot from beyond the arc at a decent clip. The Mavericks selected Tyler Bey with the No. 36 pick.
Josh Richardson struggled mightily with his shot in Game 4, scoring 14 points (2-10 FG, 2-5 3PT, 8-9 FT) with three rebounds, five assists, and two turnovers as the Sixers lose 110-106 and get swept by the Celtics in four games.
Richardson played another set of heavy minutes as Brett Brown went with the starters for most of the game. He scored in double figures in each of the four playoff games, but wasn't able to help the Sixers get in the win column. It'll be an offseason full of question marks for the 76ers.
Josh Richardson put up 18 points (7-17 FG, 3-9 3PT, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, and two assists over 37 minutes of play Monday.
It was a relatively disappointing night for Richardson, who has struggled to find consistency all season. The 76ers will need more from him if they want to compete with Boston in round one of the playoffs.
Josh Richardson will miss Tuesday's contest against the Phoenix Suns due to rest.
Richardson is coming off one of his best games as a member of the 76ers dropping a season-high 34 points last night, but he'll sit out on Tuesday to get some rest. The Sixers are getting decimated by injuries, so this is likely a precautionary measure as the playoffs begin next week. Expect Alec Burks to earn more minutes in the absence of Richardson on Tuesday.
Josh Richardson posted 34 points (13-20 FG, 2-2 FT, 6-10 3PT), five rebounds and six assists across 38 minutes during the Sixers 121-124 loss to the Blazers on Sunday.
With Ben Simmons (knee) out and Joel Embiid (foot) leaving early, the Sixers were in need of some firepower on offense and Richardson stepped up. The 26-year-old guard responded with a season-high 34 points on 60 percent shooting from three and 65 percent overall from the field. With Simmons and Embiid nursing injuries, Richardson is in line to see a major bump in usage and could become an attractive fantasy option as a result. He'll look to keep things rolling against the surging Suns on Tuesday.
