Quenton Richardson headed to the Orlando Magic

Richardson has reached a deal with the Orlando Magic, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo.

Richardson fits what Orlando likes to do — he shot 40 percent from three last year. And Orlando likes to shoot the three. He also is a pretty good defender. All in all, a good fit. We’re not sure what the money or years are yet.

It means Matt Barnes is leaving Orlando.

The question is will it have a bearing on if the Magic match the offer JJ Redick got from the Chicago Bulls. Frankly, Redick and Richardson would make a great starter/backup at the two that few teams could match. But how much does Orlando want to spend?
