Richards is the anti-Carmelo.
I had the same initial thought, but the anticipated (correctly) NBA lockout really made the Melo situation quite different. If Melo did not sign a new contract before the lockout, his contract would be completely up in the air. In contrast, Richards knew exactly what would be available if he just held on until July 1st. Melo had no idea what a new CBA would bring.
