Veteran point guard Luke Ridnour was traded four times this offseason before being waived by the Toronto Raptors, and now the point guard will sit out the 2015-16 season, according to Yahoo! Sports’ Marc Spears.
While Ridnour hasn’t officially retired, Spears says a return to the league doesn’t seem likely. The 34-year-old has played 12 seasons in the NBA.
Ridnour wasn’t very effective the last two seasons, and he put up career-lows in points and assists per game with the Orlando Magic in 2014-15. He appeared in just 47 games and played 14.5 minutes per game, shooting 42.6 percent overall and 31.7 percent from three.
Ridnour’s journey this summer began when the Magic traded him to the Memphis Grizzlies in late June. The Grizzlies then dealt him to the Charlotte Hornets before the Hornets flipped him to the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Thunder then traded him to the Toronto Raptors, who waived him in early July the day before his $2.75 million contract for next season was set to become guaranteed.
