Default Quentin Richardson traded for 4th time this summer! To Heat. Wolves get Mark Blount

http://www.insidehoops.com/blog/?p=4699

The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced the team has traded guard/forward Quentin Richardson to the Miami Heat in exchange for center Mark Blount.

“We are very excited to add Quentin Richardson,” said Heat President Pat Riley. “Over the course of his career, he has proven to be a fierce competitor, a great locker room presence and a very prolific three-point shooter who may be one of the strongest perimeter players in the NBA. We feel that he will be able to match-up well against the top scorers in the league. We also want to thank Mark Blount for his contributions to the Heat. He provided a solid veteran presence to our team the past two years.”

The Heat do plan to keep Q-Rich and will play him some serious minutes, a source said.

Well this might be his last time..

Haha, good for him. Maybe things won't work out for Richardson in Miami and he'll be dealt again by the deadline. In fact, I wish this all would have gone down during the season so his stats for 2009-2010 could forever read NYK-MEM-LAC-MIN-MIA.

I actually like this trade. More shooters around Wade. Can't be all that bad.

Plus, why the hell would Minny want Blount?

Plus Wade and Q-Rich are good friends, so it might be further incentive for Wade to stick around, even though he has stated that he wants to be here.

Yeah they are, both from Chi-town. Good trade for the HEAT.

It seems like only yesterday.

Blount's contract is smaller, and he won't be a locker room problem (Richardson will get ansty and want out).

Great move by the Heat. Didn't see this one coming. Trading garbage away for a player who could be a solid contributor and provide some depth to the thin Heat team.

If the Heat add Richardson and Murray, Miami could be adding 15-20 more points off the bench per night.

Minny saves money by waiving Blount.
