Sixers trade Josh Richardson, pick for Seth Curry: Grades

Mavericks' Seth Curry traded to 76ers joins father-in-law Doc Rivers

With a likely to-be-declined $11,615,328 player option for 2021-22, Richardson probably won't interfere with the Mavericks' 2021 plans.* If Richardson plays poorly enough to opt in, Dallas' problems would really be compounded.

Curry, whose father-in-law is new Sixers coach Doc Rivers, addresses Philadelphia's glaring need for perimeter shooting to complement stars Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons.

Facing the luxury tax, the 76ers get cheaper by going from Richardson ($10,865,952 salary next season) to Curry ($7,834,449 salary next season).

Richardson was a key player for Philadelphia last season with averages of 13.7 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.9 assists in 30.8 minutes.

Philadelphia 76ers has a decent 43 wins and 30 loses to give them a 6th seed in the Eastern Conference. In order to do this, Sixers president of basketball operations Daryl Morey made a draft-day trade for sharpshooter Seth Curry, Steph Curry's younger brother, from the Dallas Mavericks, according to ESPN and Yahoo! He shot a career-best 45.2% from 3-point range. Mavericks faced and fell to Clippers 4-2 in the first round of the playoffs. Besides gaining Seth Curry, their big move so far has been sending out Al Horford and picks for Danny Green and Terrance Ferguson, reported by Yahoo!
