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

Blount, a 7-0 center, has appeared in 605 career games over his nine-year career, including stops in Boston, Denver, Minnesota and Miami. Originally selected by Seattle with the 54th overall pick of the 1997 NBA Draft, Blount owns career averages of 8.2 points and 4.6 rebounds per game.

Richardson was originally acquired by the Wolves from the L.A. Clippers on July 20. The nine-year veteran has appeared in 601 career games, averaging 11.5 points and 5.0 rebounds.

Yeah I'm really close friends with him- he told me he wanted to go sightseeing so he went from NY to Memphis, Memphis to LA, LA to Minnesota, Min to Miami. He wants to come down to Toronto next lmao. What's he going to do? He's going to add great range on the guard/forward position- definitely a go-to guy when the lanes are clogged. Haha btw I searched Q-Rich on wiki and it said it was on the wolves but A SECOND later I refresh and then it said Miami Heat- funny how fast news spreads.

08-14-2009, 12:01 AM
1. To appease Wade a little...
2. He was practically free
3. They can use Wright and/or Jones in a trade and still have a capable SF

Did Richardson have to hold a press conference for every team he was traded to? Otherwise, I can't see why he would actually have to travel from place to place since its the offseason.

Quickest and easiest option to please Wade a bit more, a veteran 3-pt shooter will definitely help the team. He's also a good friend of Wade, having both been born in chitown as well.

ctitus45
08-14-2009, 12:20 AM
A friend of Wade's...and he will be more of an asset to the team than Blount has been. Why wouldn't they make this trade?

08-14-2009, 12:21 AM
Have you ever seen Q-Brick play?

If you have ever seen Q-Rich play you know he's a straight chucker. He'll chuck up 17 shots and will only make 2 and won't pass the ball once he gets it. So this trade really doesn't help Wade at all.

ctitus45
08-14-2009, 12:45 AM
yeah, ive seen him play. he plays well when there are other stars around him. not on a garbage NY squad. it's an upgrade for Miami..it's not a title contending move but an upgrade. players always play better when surrounded by a close friend or friends. for example, Josh Howard was never the same once Marquis Daniels left and then once Devin Harris left he dropped off a bit more (my fellow Mavs fans can agree with this). Why do you think Portland was going after Conley Jr. in the draft a few years ago? because Oden would have more support through his friend and the comfort of having at least someone who can push you and give you the confidence to compete at a high level. It wasn't QRich's fault that he had no one to distribute him the rock in NY...The Knicks are a joke and will be until they get some proven, veteran talent in the organization. There is a reason that Kidd and Grant Hill didn't wanna waste the rest of their career there.

Derick713

It's a good move, but a curious one. The Heat will be taking on a bigger contract in terms of salary. Q-Rich makes a little less than 1 million more than Blount. Not much, I know. Still it affects the Heat in terms of Iverson and Murray. With the Heat being conscious of the Tax I figure it affects the free agent scape more.

In the end the Heat get a rotation player. They add another shooter. They add someone that will get playing time unlike Blount. They add a more valuable trade asset in Richardson.

This move either says a lot about Dorell Wright or it sets the Heat up to make a bigger move during the year. With Q-Rich it allows the Heat more flexibility with Cook or Wright. If they add Cook in a package that frees up more cap space for 2010. If the Heat have to include Wright, Jones, Cook, or someone else in a package the acquisition of Richardson restores depth incase of another trade. The Heat can now afford to trade Cook, Jones, or Wright and not worry about their shooting depth.

OFF-SEASON FINISH-
Mario Chalmers/Flip Murray/Patrick Beverly
Dwayne Wade/Daeqaun Cook/Dorell Wright
James Jones/Quentin Richardson/Yakhouba Diawara
Udonis Haslem/Michael Beasley/
Jermaine O'Neal/Joel Anthony/Jamaal Maglorie

Trust me, you don't want him to shoot. He is only effective as a post up player on smaller guards, he plays tough and brings a tough mentality which is good especially with the younger guys on your team, and he's a vocal leader in the lockeroom which is also a plus.........just hope he doesn't play too much

Quentin Richardson is washed up, plays lazy defense and chucks too many shots. Even before Mike D'Antoni got to NY he wasn't a good shooter. He'll take 17 shots and hit 1-3 at best now, he'll give you a great game once a month. Heat did it for depth, but its nothing to be excited about.

There is a reason that Kidd and Grant Hill didn't wanna waste the rest of their career there.

What does him being a good 3 point shooter in phoenix 5 years ago (where he shot under 40 % from the field btw in that great team, guy is a 39.8% CAREER SHOOTER) have anything to do with how he played in new york. In phoenix he played 10 more minutes per game and average like 4 more point per game...sounds pretty much the same too me. No need to talk trash about the knicks because your team thinks a washed up player is what is needed to convince wade to stay. Heat are taking the Cavs' route and dumping more average/below average players into the line up thinking they are pleasing their stars. You are saying this now but trust me the talent around him wasn't qrich's problem, its the fact that since he left that suns squad he has had a bad back and is very immobile and washed up. He has good size and i think i saw him go hard to the basket a total of 5 times last year, because he cant do it with his back. I hope he does good in miami because hes a good guy...but i wouldn't count on much if i was a heat fan.

Actually this was a pretty awesome trade for us. I didn't know Q rich was also an expiring contract so it's all good. We had way too many centers and he was useless, now Q rich is a decent role player and can hopefully contribute off the bench. The biggest and by far the worse problem the heat have is depth and we made a LITTLE bit better at least.

How are people saying this is a bad trade for the Heat? How many times did Blount play useful min this year? Blount just warmed up the bench. So the Heat trade a useless player who's contract expires next year for a player that can be a solid bench player whom still has an expiring contract, plus his friends with Wade!

Can someone please explain to me how this is a bad move from the Heat? I'm having a hard time finding any reasons.

Solid move by the Heat.

Smart trade for Minny - they save even more money and QRich would have sucked there.

Smart trade for Miami - they still have 3 more centers. QRich is almost done, but he's still better for Miami than Blount. Another poster mentioned this, but getting QRich does set up for a better depth situation if the Heat have to use Haslem, Jones and even Wright to pursue Boozer in a three team deal.

Why do people feel bad this guy? He just got traded from the cold winters of Minnesota to South Beach! He's probably the happiest guy living right now.

I love it for miami..

a) Brings a solid veteran into the rotation at SF/SG for the Heat.

B) they had too many centers; so releasing Blount gives them now only 3 centers.


I don't understand the trade for Minnesota..... They have a plethora of Big man on their roster right now.. I mean they have their core.. Jefferson and Love.. and they jsut acquired Ryan Hollins from Dallas.. but now they have Blount? Hopefully its for his contract and maybe.. somehow.. they can buy him out.

as someone who is knowledgeable about the Wolves and thier situation, I will enlighten everyone as to why they would do this.
They know they are not winning this year. This wipes an additional $2 million off the books for this year. Q would have wanted minutes. Kahn/Rambis have one goal in mind this year. To clear as much money as possible, and give their young core as much playing time as their bodies can handle. This has nothing to do with basketball. It saves more money, that is it. Period. Blount will either be dealt, waived, or sit bench quietly for a year.

also good move for the heat.

yeah for real man, I used to love making fun of him watching the game i'd be like "watch he's going to get passed the ball and then take a 3 point shot less than a second later and not even come close to making it" (heat get the ball) "I TOLD YOU THAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN!"

but atleast we still have chris quinn to use as a joke :)

No kidding. That has to be the last time Blount ever gets traded. Nobody wants that guy, and his contract just saved his last team money. Let's all bid farewell to Blount as he will probably never be heard from again...

Blount's the only reason to follow NBA:confused:

Blount for trash?

The Wolves already have Cardinal and this trade puts them over the top.

Mark Blount should just retire after this season..Maybe the Wolves wanted him back because they can sell teams on his size/strength. If only people had the displeasure of seeing him ever play...nuckle headed terrible..

the egos of Wade and Blount were too much for the Heat to control, so they decided to trade the better of the two.

Great trade for the Miami Heat. People may not realize this because Q played in NY, but he can definitely contribute. He has a low post game against smaller defenders and he is a solid 3 point shooting. The down side of him are the injuries though.

I do not know what the Minnesota Timberwolves were thinking.

I think he gets traded to the 76ers next.

They have been trying to trade Dalembert and they seriously need some 3 point shooting because they only have Kapono for that.

Q will light up the sky with the insane amount of three pointers he's going to hit once he hits south beach.

Miami will forget about resigning Wade and put all the money on Q-rich.

They can sign and trade Wade for a good complimentary piece to Q-rich so they can create a dynasty.

You Miami fans are nuts if you think getting Q is going to do much of anything on the court. There is a reason he has been traded what, like 11 times so far this offseason. It's because he's all sorts of washed up. And to counter the "he was playing on a trash team" argument, he didn't start for this "trash team" and his playing time dwindled to next to nothing by year's end.

THe positives are that he is a great locker room guy, and being Wade's friend can't be a bad thing. If he were also committed to posting up his defender he would be MUCH better, but then again, this has been the knock on him his entire career, yet he continues to chuck up the 3. It IS NOT accurate to call him a three-point shooter. He's a chucker.

When Mark Blount gets released he should change his name to "Marko Blountinagni" and undergo some skin bleaching treatments ...

The Raptors would jump all over him! Five years, $50 million sounds about right.

David Lee, Nate Robinson, Al Harrington, Wilson Chandler

all of them are better then Q-Rich hell even Chris Duhon was better then Q-Rich. At least he has a decent post game.

What you guys (who are saying this is a steal by the heat) fail to realize is that the wolves DON'T want to win this year. If they are out of the bottom 8-10 of the league they will lose their pick. Why slow down the rebuilding process? This will give the Wolves extra cap room next year AND keep their top 10 pick this year. Talent wise the Heat win but then again, the Heat could actually use talent. Q-Rich is a waste and not part of the Wolves future.

What the hell would Q-Rich do for the wolves? I'd rather have the 2M cap room.

on top of that he would also demand playing time, when we need to develop Ellington, and Rubio/Flynn assuming Rubio can make it over. The Wolves are all about player development this season. And saving money. Nothing more.

I think its a good move for the heat, Q should fit right in, they move the ball well and look for open threes and Q can hit the three. He also can miss them too. Not a bad pu for a player they hardly use

The reason why he's traded so many times I am sure is because of his injury concerns. Your right, it is a big concern. When he is playing though, he will be productive and especially if he is playing for a better team than the Knicks. He may not make a huge difference in Miami but I can guarantee you that it is 10 times better than what they had before. At worst, he'll only be there for a year anyway.
