4. Josh Richardson

  • Contract: 2 years / $5.9 million
  • 2023-24 Salary: $2.81 million

Josh Richardson made a return to the team this year after being traded, signing a two-year deal in July. Despite receiving a larger contract offer from another team, Richardson chose to reunite with the Heat after a discussion with head coach Erik Spoelstra.

The Heat had recently lost Gabe Vincent to the Los Angeles Lakers and Richardson's signing has helped alleviate the impact of Vincent's departure. Standing at 6-foot-5, Richardson is known for his 3-point shooting and perimeter defense.

This season, Richardson is averaging 10.5 points and 3.1 assists in 27.6 minutes per game. He has an overall shooting percentage of 46.2% and a 3-point shooting percentage of 29.6%. Richardson can improve his shot consistency to make him a more valuable asset. His contract is worth $5.9 million over two years, with a player option in the second year. His base salary for this season is $2.9 million, which can be considered in potential trades.
