With Drury and Gomez, we overpaid for guys who weren't elite players. With Richards, it's a little more concerning because he was an elite player before he arrived here. He looked very good to finish out the regular season last year, but this year he looks old and even slower than before. What's worse is that his creativity and vision seem to have disappeared.

It just shows that you can't really predict how quickly players will deteriorate. I think it's a bit premature to say that we ought to buy him out this summer, but it's alarming that we're even having this conversation about the guy.
