Quentin Richardson, who averaged 10.2 points, 4.4 rebounds and 26.3 minutes in 72 games with the Knicks in 2008-09, is returning to Los Angeles where he played four successful seasons with the Clippers from 2000-01 to 2003-04 after being drafted with the 18th pick of the 2000 NBA Draft out of DePaul.
One of the most popular Clippers players of all-time during his first stint in Los Angeles, the 29-year old Richardson has played for three NBA teams (Clippers, Phoenix, New York) and was acquired by the Memphis Grizzlies on June 25, 2009 in exchange for Darko Milicic.
The 6-foot-6 Richardson enjoyed his strongest NBA season in 2003-04 with the Clippers when he appeared in 65 contests, making 64 starts while averaging a career-high 17.2 points and 6.4 rebounds. Richardson moved to the Phoenix Suns as a free agent in 2004-05 where he led the NBA in three-point field goals, won the 2005 Three-Point Shootout at All-Star Weekend and helped Phoenix to the Western Conference Finals before joining the New York Knicks in 2005-06.
A former Conference USA Player of the Year and Honorable Mention All-American at DePaul, Richardson has enjoyed a 601 game NBA career, with the Chicago native averaging 11.5 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.6 assists while shooting 39.8 percent from the field in 26.8 minutes.
The Clippers acquired Randolph in a trade with the New York Knicks on Nov. 21, 2008 and the power forward finished the season as the Clippers leading scorer, averaging 20.8 points and 10.1 rebounds in 50 games.
