Jason Richardson signing

(August 18, 2015) Atlanta Hawks have signed veteran guard/forward Jason Richardson. Richardson will be entering his 14th year in the NBA with a career scoring average of 17.1ppg. Richardson averaged 9.1ppg in under 22 minutes per game with the 76ers last season. Hawks currently have Kyle Korver, Kent Bazemore, Tim Hardaway Jr., and Justin Holiday at shooting guard so expect Richardson to share minutes at small forward with Thabo Sefalosha. Sefalosha is more of a defensive minded player while Richardson is a scoring type player (shoots more 3’s now since he’s far into his career) so the Hawks got a little bit of variety here at small forward. I don’t expect Richardson to completely light up the scoreboard but expect him to be sinking some buckets. I think this will be a solid pickup.
