Miami Heat rising star Josh Richardson may see his name more and more in the trade rumor mill until the NBA trade deadline passes, and he has been linked to the Minnesota Timberwolves in a potential Jimmy Butler deal, but he is not concerned with the rumors.
“I’ve always kind of stayed in my lane,” Richardson said, according to NBC Sports’ Dan Feldman.
The ascension of Richardson has been a surprise, even to Heat head coach Erick Spoelstra, so it’s not surprising that his name has come up in trade rumors.
“We never want to put a ceiling on anybody,” Spoelstra said. “When he first came in, no, I didn’t necessarily see him as this.”
So far this season, Richardson is putting up career numbers and showing everyone in the league that he is legit.
Wizards’ Isaiah Thomas Wants to Find Permanent Home
Washington Wizards’ guard Isaiah Thomas is looking to find a permanent home as he gets his career back on track.
Thomas is currently on a one-year minimum contract with the Wizards, and while he didn’t rule out a long-term deal with Washington, he did state his goal is on this long-term future.
“I want to be somewhere I can be three or four years,” Thomas said, according to Fred Katz of The Athletic.
“I was in Sacramento for three years. I was in Boston for three years. Even though that’s not a long time, I was comfortable there. My family was able to build relationships with people around the organization, people around the city. It just made things easier. So, what I am looking for — obviously, I want to get paid the most I possibly can, because I feel like I deserve that, but I also want to be able to be somewhere for a while.”
Thomas is averaging 13.2 points and 6.2 assists per game for the Wizards this season.
