The Toronto Raptors waived guard-forward Quentin Richardson on Tuesday, less than two months after acquiring him in a trade with the New York Knicks.
Richardson, who came to Toronto on July 10 along with center Marcus Camby, forward Steve Nash and three future draft picks in exchange for forward Andrea Bargnani, signed with the Knicks in April and played in five playoff games, averaging just under three minutes per contest. He averages 10.3 points per game in his 13-year NBA career.
The move leaves the Raptors with 14 players on the roster. Toronto begins preseason play on Oct. 7 against Boston.
