8. Josh Richardson
Josh Richardson has stepped up to become the primary scoring option in Miami because I reckon someone had to. (Get well soon, Dion Waiters). He’s gone from 10.9 field attempts last season up to 17.7 this year. He’s doubled his point per game average becoming a 20 point scorer every night.
When his name was floated as the main piece in a trade for Jimmy Butler before the season, I kind of laughed it off. Obviously Butler is better than Richardson. But at their current ages and contracts and with Butler randomly taking nights off to ‘rest’, Richardson might actually be the perfect player to save Minnesota’s season.
