Jason Richardson

Free agent shooting guard Jason Richardson hosted a charity golf tournament Wednesday near his hometown of Saginaw, Mich.

He told the Saginaw News the chance to compete for an NBA championship will be a high priority when he shops for a new team whenever the lockout ends.

“I want to go to a great place for my family,” Richardson said. “I’ve been blessed by God to play in the NBA for a lot of money. I’d like to go someplace that has a chance to win a championship.

“I’ve taken care of my money and (the lockout) won’t be a problem for me financially. I would guess that it won’t be a problem for 85 to 90 percent of the players. But you’re seeing some players going overseas for a lot less money. They just want to play.”
