On This Date: Knicks bring back Quentin Richardson

April 16th 2013: Knicks bring back Quentin Richardson

In what should not have been a surprising move, the Knicks signed Quentin Richardson to the team. The Knicks wanted to sign additional veteran depth at both the SG and SF positions and thought Q-Rich could fit that role. Additionally, the team wanted an additional body that could play in the final game while the main rotation players would rest. The Knicks waived both Rasheed Wallace (in the next day) and Kurt Thomas (previously) due to career ending injuries.

Q-Rich played in the final game of the regular season where he grabbed 10 rebounds in 28 minutes. Q-Rich was largely a caricature of himself when he returned to the team, just like Kurt Thomas & Marcus Camby. He played quite sparingly in the playoffs, only appearing during blowout games.
