Josh Richardson believes Sixers have ‘a good chance to come out of the East’
Nothing is set in stone, but the Sixers’ projected starting lineup for next season is Ben Simmons, Josh Richardson, Tobias Harris, Al Horford and Joel Embiid. That’s as good as any starting five in the NBA.
“I mean once it happened and I started looking at everything, it was smooth,” Richardson said, via Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald. “I got excited once I saw our roster that we’re going to be working with, and I think we’ve got a good chance to come out of the East. And I’m excited to be able to go and play for a contender.”
Richardson is a sound two-way player. He averaged 16.6 points, 3.6 rebounds and 4.1 assists last season in Miami while shooting 41.2 percent from the field, 35.7 percent from beyond the arc and 86.1 percent from the free-throw line.
