Quentin ‘The Hobo’ Richardson Traded Again

The NBA’s version of a hot potato is on the move once more: “The Timberwolves late Thursday night traded newly acquired Quentin Richardson to Miami and brought back former Wolves center Mark Blount in another David Kahn move that has everything to do with salary-cap bookkeeping and cost-saving and nothing to do with this season’s roster…This time, he brings back Blount’s expiring $7.96 million salary slot in exchange for Richardson’s $9.35 million expiring contract.”

    Not really a bad move at all, considering the Wolve’s frontcourt has just about nobo— wha? What are you… Al Jefferson? Oh okay, well… huh? Kevin Love too? Well… huh…

  • 6marjon

    good move and hopefully this one will push dwade to sign

    Qrich fell off damn.

  • Ken

    I’d rather be in Miami than Minnesota, that’s for damn sure.

    Now the Heat are going to get him to Cuba.

    He can join my team. We play 5th division in Europe. We’d be more than happy to have him.

  • tavoris

    damn Q-Rich…at least u ended up in Miami (which I’m sure you’ll love if you aren’t traded AGAIN next week)

    Miami… not bad! But is this a record? Being traded 4 times in two months must be some kind of record, right?

    Correct me if I’m wrong but, didn’t Minni ALREADY pick up a crapload of bigmen from Washington?

  • ngoiekafita

    Should I adjust the rosters on my NBA live or should i just wait untill the trade season is over, Q?

  • http://www.alloutblitz.com cordeazy

    he’s getting traded to a Church League next

    Breaking News
    The Miami Heat have reportedly traded Quentin Richardson for a washing Machine!

  • http://www.sprint.com/sero dma

    @niQ Etan Thomas and Darius Songalia don’t count as big men. I don’t get how this is a financial move for Minnesota. They trade away a $9M expiring for a $7M. Aren’t they under the luxury cap anyways?

  • Tenorca

    Wade is definitely thinking, “You got a washed up ex-Clipper, ex-Knick, currently chubby hot potato of a remorseless chucker? Where’s my Mont Blanc?”

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    I think he will do a complete 180 and soon be traded back to Brandy.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    Man I feel bad for Q Rich… He’s not THAT bad!

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    He used to be pretty darn good.

    a starting spot, but i will talk to the heat management for you..and see if we can work something out.. i miss you and darious miles doing nuts on your head(after every dunk 4 the clippers)maybe jermaine oneal can give you some of his 23 mil this year,that team with josh childress, von wafer, and kleiza doesnt seem so bad.. see you in greece,italy or israel ,soon

  • Remo Williams

    career 35.4% shooter.

    he’s not THAT good!

  • http://www.nba.com JE

    Let’s start placing bets on where he goes for training camp.

  • Josh D

    He’s probably only got about 4 teams left before he zsettles vdown for trainning camp becuase he started in NY, went to Memphis, then to LAC,then the T’Wolves, and now the Heat, so his tour of the USA will be complete after about 4 or 5 more teams and then he’ll b back with da Knicks

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com/ Moose

    Just for laughs, Miami is trading him to Toronto next week.

  • lankan23

    woww…not a surprise lmao
    he will be traded again next week

  • Christian BulleN

    Miami, just trade this guy to Milwaukee so we can all forget about him.

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    In the time it took you to read this comment, Quentin Richardson was traded six more times.

  • jose

    haha at Russ.nice one!

  • http://slamonline BossTerry

    Hope he and D. Miles become teammates again and once again annoy us with the double fist head pound after every made shot..

  • http://dgcoursereview.com Bro D.

    Anyone remember that track off the Pharcyde’s Bizarre Ride II where it kept singing “Quenton’s on the way, Quenton’s on the way,” over again? Were they talking about Q-rich in a Nostradamus like fashion?

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com Blinguo

    Richest hobo, ever? Rich is even part of his shortened last and nickname. Maybe the solid gold house and rocket car guy on the Simpsons is 1st though.

  • http://sevendeu2u.wordpress.com/ Seven deuce

    Bro D – I almost fell off my couch with that one!

  • http://slamonline BossTerry

    Nice reference bro D, whatever happened to the Pharcyde. Their video for- Drop was bad-ass.

  • http://twitter.com/SnowdaJake SnowdaJake

    The tweets you all were posting yesterday when it happened were great.

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    I agree with Snowda. Russ, Lang and Applesauce were KILLING it yesterday on Twitter as the news got out. Jake coined my favorite new Nickname for a baller too…Q shall now be known as NASDAQ!

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    @Bro D: amazing comment, man. Amazing.

  • dijah

    i don’t know about anyone else but .. to me he sucks after all of his years in NY

  • http://slamonline.com/online/category/blogs/fear/ Freedom Fries

    “Don’t expect Blount to get a locker stall, much less his Wolves uniform back. Kahn will either save nearly $1.4 million by waiving Blount outright instead of Richardson or use his expiring contract in another trade. . . Kahn, it turns out, had no interest in Richardson playing for the Wolves this season, either.”

  • Seven Duece

    QRich could actually get a shot at playing in Miami theoretically.

  • http://slamonline BossTerry

    @ dijah I wasnt gonna say anything because there seems to be die-hard fans of every player of every team on here who wont think twice about overly defending their guys, but I dont see the hype for QRich either.. Was pretty good early on with the Clips, but now an average player at best…. T-Mac anybody..

  • http://slamonline BossTerry

    oops, shoulda ended with- ???

  • mar

    He used to play at my house but then i traded him for a mc chicken.
