Knicks Sign Quentin Richardson
The Knicks have announced the signing of free agent swingman Quentin Richardson, who previously played with the team from 2005 until 2009. Richardson averaged 9.7 points and 5.0 rebounds in 28.2 minutes per game as a Knick.
Richardson’s roster spot was created when the team released Solomon Jones, who had been signed last week and let go after only two games.
The reason the Knicks could sign Richardson as opposed to, say, former Spurs forward Stephen Jackson is because Richardson was not on an NBA roster on March 1. Jackson was still a Spur at that time, which makes him ineligible for the postseason.
