Clippers trade Richardson to Timberwolves, swap trio

THE Los Angeles Clippers have traded forward Quentin Richardson to the Minnesota Timberwolves for guard Sebastian Telfair and forwards Craig Smith and Mark Madsen, the NBA team announced yesterday.

"This move really gives some much needed depth," Clippers general manager and coach Mike Dunleavy said on the team's website (

Telfair, a five-year NBA veteran, averaged 9.8 points and 4.6 assists with the Timberwolves last year. Smith scored 10.1 points per game and Madsen added 2.2 points while playing a reserve role.

Richardson was reacquired by Clippers in a trade with Memphis on Friday. He averaged 10.2 points and 4.4 rebounds with the New York Knicks last season before being traded to Memphis in the offseason.

"This move provides us additional flexibility as we continue to reshape our roster into one positioned for long-term success," David Kahn, the Timberwolves president of basketball operations, said on the team's website.
