Luke Ridnour is Being Traded to Every NBA Team This Summer
Okay, so that title is a little misleading. Luke Ridnour hasn’t been traded to every NBA team (at least not yet), but he has played for five teams in less than a week after being traded four times in the past week (including three times in two days last week).
Ridnour began last week as a member of the Orlando Magic, but on Tuesday, he was traded to the Memphis Grizzlies. One day later, he was shipped to the Charlotte Hornets for Matt Barnes, and on the same day, the Hornets sent him to Oklahoma City along with a 2016 second-round pick for Jeremy Lamb.
It appeared as though Ridnour’s wild offseason trip around southeast America had ended there, but on Monday morning the Thunder announced that they had traded Ridnour to the Toronto Raptors for the draft rights to forward Tomislav Zubcic—who was taken by the Raptors with the 56th pick in the 2012 NBA Draft and has spent the past two seasons in the Croatian League.
So as it stands, that’s five teams for Luke Ridnour in the last week. And he has also spent time in the past with the Milwaukee Bucks, Minnesota Timberwolves, and Seattle Supersonics.
I’m tempted to joke that the 34-year-old point guard must have quite the collection of jerseys, but I doubt they even give you a jersey when you’re on a team for just a few hours.
