NBA Note - Miami Heat Richardson, Josh

Sep 19, 2017 - 1:09 AM G Josh Richardson officially signed a multi-year contract extension with the Heat on Monday. Richardson, 24, agreed on a four-year, $42 million contract extension last week as reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. The deal includes a player option on the fourth year.

Richardson, who was originally selected by the Heat in the second round (40th overall) of the 2015 draft out of Tennessee, appeared in 53 games (34 starts) last season with Miami and averaged 10.2 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.13 steals and 30.5 minutes. The shooting guard dealt with a recurring ankle injury.

The 6-foot-6, 200-pound Richardson outperformed every major statistical category from his rookie campaign and was one of eight Heat players to average double-figures in points, marking the most for any team in the NBA last season.
