He has averaged 4.7 rebounds and 1.5 assists over 26.5 minutes in 12 seasons with the Clippers, Suns, Knicks, Heat and Magic. He has appeared in 31 postseason games (21 starts), averaging 8.5 points and 4.3 rebounds over 28.5 minutes.

Richardson has not played in the NBA since the 2011-12 season with Orlando. He spent four seasons (2005-09) with the Knicks, averaging 9.7 points and 5.0 rebounds.
