STAR UNDERDOG

NBA ROLE: ALL-AROUND TWO-GUARD

 

With the 40th pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, the HEAT picked up a high-level, two-way wing in Josh Richardson; a nice-sized, all-around swingman, Richardson’s a major contributor in the league – has grown into his own as a complete talent; standing at 6’6, J-Rich is a reliable shooter and scorer – comes off screens hard, looking to make a play (normally via dribble-midrangers & hard drives to the cup) but realizes how to value possessions; if you play D, you get PT: Richardson’s (near)-stopper status is sometimes overshadowed by his emerging scoring ability; quick & disciplined – hounds 1s-3s, disruptive defender - always brings a strong effort; no conscience – plays multiple positions (handles the ball, comes off screens at the two, etc.) w/ poise & tenacity; much improved outside shooter*, improving shot creator - patient, navigates well around screens; learning how to finish through contact & get to the line at a higher rate; acquired by Sixers – J-Rich is in a versatile role on a young contender

 

*shot 38% in '17-'18 - very comfortable w/ elbow treys
