Richardson, entering his seventh year, would join his fourth team in four seasons, providing the Celtics with a two-way boost.

The Boston Celtics have made yet another move under team president Brad Stevens, acquiring swingman Josh Richardson from the Dallas Mavericks for center Moses Brown.

Richardson, selected in the second round by the Heat at the 2015 NBA Draft, developed from a bench player into a playoff-seasoned starter. He peaked in year four, averaging 16.6 points, 3.6 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 1.1 steal, nailing 35.7% of 6.3 attempts from long-range during the 2018-19 season.
