Magic, Quentin Richardson Agree In Principle To Multi-Year Deal

Apr. 27, 2010 - Boston, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES - epa02134116 Miami Heat forward Quentin Richardson (R) dunks the ball over Boston Celtics forward Paul Pierce (L) during the first quarter of their conference quarterfinals round game at the TD Bank Garden in Boston, Massachusetts, USA 27 April 2010. The Celtics lead the best-of-seven series 3-1 and the winner will go on to face either the Cleveland Cavaliers or the Chicago Bulls.

Per Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the Magic and Quentin Richardson have agree in principle to a multi-year deal. Wojnarowski broke the deal through twitter.

Quentin Richardson has agreed in principle to a multi-year contract with the Orlando Magic, a league source tells Y! Sports.
Richardson averaged 8.9 points per game in 76 games for the Miami Heat last season.

This signing effectively ends the relationship between the Magic and last year’s starting small forward Matt Barnes. I don’t believe this signing has anything to do with matching the Bulls’ offer for J.J. Redick, it appears that Q-Rich is simply Barnes’ replacement.
