Things took a bad turn this summer when the Philadelphia 76ers traded Jimmy Butler to the Miami Heat. The lineup last season with Butler was one of the most talented in the NBA, but a lack of continuity doomed them in the playoffs. In the deal that sent Butler to Miami, the 76ers received the perennially underrated swingman Josh Richardson.
It did not take long for Richardson to find his role in Philadelphia. His play in both training camp and the preseason has shown that he can be the perfect player to round out Philadelphia's potent starting lineup. Boasting an all-around offensive game (career averages of 12.1 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.9 assists per game with a 42.5/36.8/82.1 percent slash line) to go with his dominant defensive abilities, he is the perfect glue guy for the 76ers.
