Magic Set To Sign Quentin Richardson

Woj just tweeted the news: “Quentin Richardson has agreed in principle to a multi-year contract with the Orlando Magic, a league source tells Y! Sports.” Add another team to Q’s resume.

    Does this mean they won’t match the bulls offer sheet to JJ???

  • http://www.slamonline.com/ niQ

    Pretty good pick up. But with Q they’re losing Matt Barnes?

  • http://www.twitter.com/gerardhimself Gerard Himself

    niQ: I think you can assume that, yes. Can’t imagine Barnes will be back.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Eboy

    So Q goes to Orlando, Barnes comes to Miami….that seems like a wash for both.

  • LA Huey

    Being a Magic fan has to be interesting in the offseason. There’s always some key roster changes in the summer

  • Jose

    At least Q won’t get bounced around the L again. I hope for his sake

  • riggs

    wait til next year jose

    barnes to miami now then.

  • rainman10

    I don’t see why Barnes would go to Miami. He always talks about deserving money and a good offer, and strongly believes that he is starter material in this league. He has gotten good offers from teams, I just dont see him taking close to minimum from the Heat.

    on to the next one

  • ConeyIslander

    Q is just a warm body on the bench at this point. SMH

    Ever notice guys who play for one Florida team usually end up playing for the other at some point?? Shaq, Jason Williams,Q Richardson, Arroyo…Im sure theres alot of others, just dont wanna think about it too much..

    I love the moves the Magic are making, they have Dwight, Jameer, Vince, & Rashard already, plus Gortat, Duhon & Richardson & they should let Reddick walk for that price, I like the way they’re shaping out & I like the Bulls moves too, add Boozer, Korver & Reddick to Rose, Deng, & Noah, scary.
    I’m a Lakers fan so I hope Matt Barnes goes to the Lakers for the 1.8mil they have, he went to UCLA & is from Southern California, or if not him I hope we get Raja Bell, imagine this:
    PG: Derek Fisher
    SG: Kobe Bryant
    SF: Ron Artest
    PF: Pau Gasol
    .C: Andrew Bynum
    PG: Steve Blake
    SG: Sasha Vujacic/Raja Bell or Matt Barnes
    SF: Lamar Odom/Devin Ebanks/Luke Walton
    PF: Josh Powell
    .C: Derrick Caracter

    @Hurricane, if you’re a Lakers fan then you’ll know Ebanks and Caracter are tearing up the Summer Leagues. Don’t need to spend extra money on Barnes. Just sign Ebanks and Caracter.

    Why? I thought that the Magic were committed to winning.

  • D12FSU

    as a magic fan, I think I’d rather have matt barnes. Q is a better shooter, but we have enough of those, Barnes provided energy, defense, and an attitude orlando had been lacking. Barnes is pretty much out, and JJ may be too much $ to keep, although there a rumors otis smith is trying to move some players in order to keep JJ.

  • NBA Kid

    @LA Huey, you’re exactly right. But it’s fun seeing our team gel during the season. And I would much rather have Matt Barnes but with him gone, I would assume Brandon Bass will be getting much more minutes to make up for the energy and rebounding lost.

  • olddirtyphil

    at least he dont have to travel far, i think the magic will once again be very deep team

  • james

    I like Q, signing him to a multi-year deal I guess would mean JJ is gone. It’s a smart move. JJ is good, but Q is a better value. he plays two positions. The Bulls will be good, but not as good as the magic.

  • NBA Kid

    Magic/Heat ECF, book it

  • Robb

    Barnes is going to L.A.

  • j-nuggz

    i agree with heat/magic in the east finals.

  • ClydeSays

    Has Q ever made a contribution to a
    winning team or helped
    anyone in the Playoffs? Why would anyone offer him a multiple year deal?

  • http://www.triplejunearthed.com/dacre Dacre

    ClydeSays – Yeah Q Rich was playing well with Steve Nash years ago in PHX. I think thats how he got this value…

  • bails1

    @ hurricane matt barnes is from sacramento not L.A.

  • orl.chris

    I hope we still keep JJ. We’re gonna need him bigtime after VCs contract is up after next season. Heck, JJ should be the starter over Vince already…

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    No way Bell & Bryant end up on the same team. Those two guys fu*king HATE each-other.

  • hobbes

    Magic aint improving since the loss of 09, they let Hedu go which is the biggest mistake and sign VC, they let JJ go n get Q bad move also. Why i say this? Coz they need ball movement and play maker rather than stand up shooters. Simple.

  • http://www.slamonline melvin ely

    same thing with Matt and Kobe hurst, they almost got into a scuffle last year didn’t they? And if I’m Otis, I do everything in my power to retain Reddick. He was the one sole effective player through out that series against boston.

  • http://www.hufsf.com Waylonakolipse

    J.J. is better and younger than Richardson. They should have just resigned him.

  • flash

    i wish miami could’ve kept Q. i liked the way he played last season for us.
