76ers trading Josh Richardson to Mavericks

Mavericks' Seth Curry traded to 76ers joins father-in-law Doc Rivers

With a likely to-be-declined $11,615,328 player option for 2021-22, Richardson probably won't interfere with the Mavericks' 2021 plans.* If Richardson plays poorly enough to opt in, Dallas' problems would really be compounded. A deal involving trade between the two teams.

The 76ers had a huge problem making 3-point shots last season.

Dallas is acquiring Philadelphia's Josh Richardson and No. 36 pick for Seth Curry, source tells ESPN. Josh Richardson was an important role player for the 76ers who was a great support for Philadelphia's All-Stars, Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid.

The trade carries a highly personal component for Curry, who will be playing under his father-in-law, new Sixers coach Doc Rivers.


Richardson, a 27-year-old guard, averaged 13.7 points with 2.9 assists and 0.9 steals in 30.8 minutes with the 76ers in 2019-20, while recording a 43 field-goal percentage and 34.1 per cent shooting from beyond the arc.

The Sixers have been aggressive in trying to rework their roster after getting swept in the first round of last year's playoffs.

Curry's is a career 44.3 percent 3-point shooter, which ranks second in National Basketball Association history behind current Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr.

This will be a trade which could be beneficial for both the teams.
