The Knicks announced Tuesday the signing of veteran guard Quentin Richardson for the rest of the season. Richardson is eligible for the playoffs because he did not play in the NBA this season.

The move completes a busy week of roster juggling for the Knicks, who released Kurt Thomas, flirted with James Singleton, and then signed Solomon Jones. New York then released Jones after he played 26 minutes in two games.

Richardson, 33, last played in the NBA for the Magic in 2011-12, when he averaged 4.5 points and 2.6 rebounds in 18 minutes per game. Back in October, the Magic bought out the final two years of Richardson's contract and he remained unsigned until Tuesday. The 12-year NBA veteran holds career averages of 10.3 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.5 assists. Richardson's tenure has included stops with the Clippers, Suns, Knicks, Heat and Magic; his previous time in New York spanned four seasons, from 2005 to 2009.

New York's roster is now full at 15 players; Richardson becomes the ninth member of the roster who is at least 30 years old.

The 53-28 Knicks will enter the playoffs this weekend as the Eastern Conference's No. 2 seed and will face the Celtics, the East's No. 7 seed, in the first round. New York captured its first Atlantic Division title since 1994 this season and is seeking its first playoff-series victory since 2000.

Not a bad 15th man/extra body.

Glad that Q-Rich got signed!Not a bad pick up and I think he brings more to the Knicks than James White,Kurt Thomas,James Singleton, and Solomon Jones would.Was happy that Singleton got another shot in the NBA but looking at how the Knicks play I think Q-Rich fits them a lot better.Plus doesn't him and Pierce not like each other?That should be fun in the playoffs but doubt he gets major minutes.

Not to mention Rasheed Wallace just retired today. It's a shame because I like him too. At least the Knicks found another shooter in Q-Rich. I really hope he'll actually get some playing time, but I kind of doubt he will. The Knicks already have enough forwards.

We should've signed Mobley instead of Summers just to sit on our bench and cheer us on during our title run.

LOL, great idea! I still wear my Mobley jersey whenever I think that the team really needs some extra luck and karma our way. I'm not sure of the actual record, but the team does do pretty well whenever I do wear it. That's superstitions for you haha.
