The Phoenix Suns officially added depth to its backcourt today with the signing of one of the league's premier rebounding guard's Quentin Richardson.
"After a long and frustrating wait, this is terrific news, " said Suns President and General Manager Bryan Colangelo. "Our staff is ecstatic about "Q" joining the Suns."
On Wednesday, July 14, the Suns signed Richardson - a restricted free agent - to an offer sheet giving the Los Angeles Clippers 15 days to match the offer under the NBA's Collective Bargaining Agreement. The Clippers notified the Suns this morning of their decision not to match the offer sheet. The contract is now a binding agreement between the Suns and Richardson.
