The Pistons are set to hire Quentin Richardson in a player development/mentoring role.
Richardson has never formally retired, but the news that he will join Stan Van Gundy's staff in Detroit sounds like a de factor retirement to us. "Q" only played one game with the Knicks last season and will finish his 13-year NBA career with averages of 10.3 points, 1.5 three-pointers, 4.7 rebounds, and 1.5 assists.

Raptors waived G/F Quentin Richardson.

Richardson was a just a throw-in that made the Andrea Bargnani deal work. He was never in the Raptors' plans going forward. Now 33 years old and merely a spot-up 3-point shooter, "Q" won't find a hot market.

Quentin Richardson received a three-year deal from the Knicks and was sent to the Raptors to complete the deal for Andrea Bargnani.

Q lucked out a bit here to make the numbers work. He played in just one regular season game last year and saw 2.8 minutes per game in five playoff appearances. Richardson is not expected to be a key part of Toronto's rotation.

Quentin Richardson is expected to see "significant minutes" on Wednesday vs. Atlanta.

It'll be interesting to see just what kind of shape Q-Rich is actually in after not playing all season, and it's hard to imagine he's ready to play 30-plus minutes after not playing all year. In any case, he'll get some burn as a tune-up for the playoffs.

Knicks sign G/F Quentin Richardson for the remainder of the season.

Richardson was waived in October by Orlando and hasn't drawn much interest since that time. He'll add a perimeter threat to the end of the Knicks bench, but it's unknown what kind of game shape he's currently in.

The Bulls are interested in potentially signing Quentin Richardson, a source tells CSN Chicago.

Chicago will look for a 14th player to add to its roster when they have cap space to do so, and the Bulls are believed to be targeting "veteran wings" with that spot. Q-Rich, a Chicago native, would offer nothing to fantasy owners.

Magic waive Quentin Richardson.

Orlando is embarking on a team-wide overhaul, and they had no interest in keeping Q-Rich -- assuming no other team claims him, which they won't, the Magic are on the hook for the $5.4 million that remains on his contract.

Quentin Richardson (calf) will not play on Sunday.

Q-Rich seems to constantly be battling a minor ailment, and there's no reason to go near him in fantasy leagues -- he shot 37.6 percent from the field last season, and should find his role reduced even further as Orlando develops their young guys.

Quentin Richardson (illness) is feeling better, but lost 11 lbs in the process.

That's one nasty flu for Q-Rich, who will not travel to Mexico City for the Magic's preseason game. He should get back to full strength before long and we're officially taking him off the injury list.

Quentin Richardson (illness) did not practice again on Thursday.

Q-Rich has missed two days of practice because he's sick, but it's not expected to be serious and the veteran should be back in action very shortly.

Quentin Richardson (illness) did not practice on Wednesday.

Q-Rich is just sick and should be back in action before too long, and this will have no impact on his fantasy outlook.

Quentin Richardson (back) returned to action on Monday, scoring eight points on 3-of-8 shooting (including a three) with four rebounds, three steals, and a block in 25 minutes off the bench.

If Richardson can put up a night like this every night, it would be considered a win. If you like those odds for your fantasy team, give him a look but remember that tonight's performance came against a very flawed Pistons squad.

Quentin Richardson (back) is expected to play in Monday's game against the Pistons.

Richardson went through Monday morning's shootaround after missing four of the last five games. With Hedo Turkoglu (face) and Dwight Howard (back) sidelined, Richardson could see significant burn. However, he's managed just 7.0 points, 3.0 rebounds and 0.7 assists when starting this season.

A back injury will sideline Quentin Richardson on Saturday.

We haven't mentioned Q-Rich in a blurb since mid-March and his absence does not have significant fantasy implications, though J.J. Redick and Jason Richardson should pick up a few extra minutes.
Sat, Apr 7, 2012 01:23:00 PM

Quentin Richardson came out of nowhere to record season-highs of 15 points and five 3-pointers vs. the Heat on Sunday, adding four rebounds, two assists and one steal.

Q-Rich played 29 minutes, also a season-high, and this is even more inexplicable since he didn't play at all in Orlando's last game (presumably a DNP-CD since we didn't hear about an injury). His strong play cut J.J. Redick down to 18 minutes of playing time.
