Report: Heat agree to contract with second-round pick Josh Richardson
The Miami Heat are keeping a fully stocked cupboard this summer. And after a breakout summer league, second-round pick Josh Richardson is on board for next season.
Ira Winderman of the Sun-Sentinel reports that the Heat and Richardson have agreed to terms on a contract that would be guaranteed for next season, with partial guarantees for the two following seasons.
With the roster as full as it is in Miami, versatility rules for any player hoping to make the team. And that's what the Heat get from Richardson. He played both backcourt positions and some small forward during summer league, where he averaged 11.8 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.6 assists in Las Vegas and Orlando.
