You know what's coming next, right? The trade for Evan Turner. All kidding aside, Richardson isn't expected to be signed and the Sixers should be commended for taking an active approach in adding a necessary element of leadership into their young locker room. Wed, Jan 6, 2016 10:19:00 AM

Hawks waive G/F Jason Richardson.

This is just procedural since Richardson has already announced his retirement from the NBA.
Mon, Sep 28, 2015 10:02:00 AM

Jason Richardson officially announced his retirement from the NBA on Wednesday.

"Today is a bitter sweet moment for me," Richardson wrote. The same can be said for NBA fans who appreciated J-Rich throughout his impressive career, from his soaring dunks with the Warriors to his evolution as a veteran perimeter threat. The inimitable J-Rich finishes with career averages of 17.1 points, 1.9 threes, 5.0 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.2 steals per game.

The Hawks officially signed Jason Richardson on Tuesday.

It's believed to be a non-guaranteed deal and even if he makes the squad J-Rich will fill a 'veteran mentor' role with minimal on-court responsibilities. In typically classy fashion, Richardson thanked the 76ers and their fans, writing, "These last 3 years have been the toughest of my career and I was blessed to have an organization and a fan base that supported me on and off the court!"

Jason Richardson will sign with the Hawks within the next few days, according to Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Richardson was originally set to sign on Monday, but Vivlamore reports that the signing has been pushed back a few days. The 34-year-old only averaged 9.1 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 1.6 three-pointers in 19 appearances for the 76ers last season, so it's safe to say that fantasy owners can feel free to leave J-Rich off their draft boards.

Jason Richardson will sign a non-guaranteed deal to join the Atlanta Hawks on Monday.

The 13-year veteran averaged 9.1 points, 3.5 boards, 2.0 assists and 1.6 3-pointers in 19 appearances for the 76ers last season, but his body is wearing down and he is definitely not a lock to make the final roster. Richardson is firmly off the fantasy radar.

Jason Richardson is open to re-signing with the Sixers this offseason.

Sam Hinkie should be forced to surrender some of the second-round picks he's traded for if he decides to re-sign Richardson.

Jason Richardson is dealing with knee soreness and will not play against the Bucks on Monday.

He actually played well on Saturday with 19 points, but he might be out for the season now. The 76ers will start Ish Smith, Hollis Thompson, Robert Covington, Jerami Grant and Furkan Aldemir.

Jason Richardson scored 19 points with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 25 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday.

His defense wasn't very good, but he was able to knock down shots. The 76ers play on Monday and Wednesday, so Richardson may play in both games because of no back-to-backs. Don't expect a line this good, though.
Sat, Apr 11, 2015 11:08:00 PM

Jason Richardson hit 6-of-7 shots and four 3-pointers for 17 points and almost nothing else on Wednesday.

It's nice to know he can still play, but he's very unreliable when it comes to fantasy.
Wed, Apr 8, 2015 10:13:00 PM

Jason Richardson was back in action on Sunday, returning from a day of rest with seven points, one 3-pointer, three rebounds and one assist, while shooting 3-of-11 from the field.

Richardson's DNPs are becoming more and more frequent as the season draws to a close and he can't be trusted in any fantasy format. In addition to all of the missed games, he's shooting a combined 30-of-111 from the field (27.0 percent) since Mar. 1.

Jason Richardson (rest) will not play on Saturday vs. the Hornets.

It's the first game of a back-to-back set, meaning Richardson will play on Sunday vs. the Knicks instead. Having said that, Richardson played just six scoreless minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Wizards, so he should be avoided in almost all leagues. Robert Covington will likely draw the start on Saturday, and should be in all lineups for his outstanding 3-point shooting.

Jason Richardson returned from a two-game absence due to a knee injury and played six scoreless minutes in Wednesday's loss.

Ignore him until further notice.

Updating a previous item, Jason Richardson (knee) will play against the Wizards on Wednesday.

He was expected to miss tonight and a game over the weekend, so this is a surprise. Richardson hasn't played well at all and is still not worth grabbing in almost any league. His return will take some minutes away from Jerami Grant, Hollis Thompson and Robert Covington.
Wed, Apr 1, 2015 05:53:00 PM

Jason Richardson (knee) will not play vs. the Wizards on Wednesday.

The 76ers have no reason to risk his health and Richardson is still reportedly battling swelling and soreness, so it could be a few more games before he is cleared to play. Richardson can be dropped just about everywhere, while Jerami Grant, Hollis Thompson and Robert Covington figure to benefit the most.
