    He should make the team. Replace a little of what Carroll brought in terms of toughness. They don’t have many offensive SGs other than Hardaway and Korver who may have to play more 3 this year.

      Richardson should be able to play in the event of an injury. Not sure he can be a contributor on a nightly basis.

      He had a few good games last season for Philly and I’m sure he’s ready to play for an actual contender.
