Replenishing the Roster

Sekou says that Atlanta will add Jeremy Richardson to get the roster up to 13 by Tuesday's game in Los Angeles.
You might remember Jeremy Richardson, the guy the Hawks had up on a couple of 10-day contracts last season that really showed some potential. Well, my people tell me that he’ll join them once again, fresh off his MVP showing in New Orleans in the D-League All-Star showcase.

He’s a good shooter, from mid-range and certainly beyond the 3-point line. And he has good size.
Richardson has played 64 NBA minutes in 14 games for four different teams the last two years. He's shot the ball well (in a larger sample size) in the D-League: 48.1 2PTFG%, 38.3 3PTFG%, 81.9 FT%. He was the MVP of the D-League All-Star game on Saturday afternoon.

Ballhype: hype it up!

So Bibby replaces Johnson and Richardson replaces Lue. Who is replacing Wright and Williams?

Solomon Jones.

Which is funny, sad, and probably true all at once.

As much as he seems to have fallen off the cliff this year, Zaza may be even more likable now that I know he can't stand Mike Woodson and vice-versa.

Honestly Solomon would be an upgrade over Wright.
