Luke Ridnour Finally Released After Being Traded Four Times In A Week
Hopefully Luke Ridnour hasn't made any plans to move recently.
Two weeks ago, he was a bit player on the Orlando Magic. A 10-year NBA journeyman, the 6-foot-2 point guard with a 9.3 points per game average was still regarded as a decent trade chip.
Ridnour likely didn't know how valuable of a trade chip he was.
On June 24, the Magic traded him to the Memphis Grizzles for the rights to Latvian forward Janis Timma. But that was only the beginning.
Before the day as over, the Grizzles moved him to the Hornets. The following day, he was traded again to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
For five days, it looked like Ridnour would get the chance to settle in with his new team. Not the case. On June 30, the Thunder dealt him to the Toronto Raptors for the rights to another foreign player. Finally, on Thursday, Ridnour was waived.
The Raptors waived Luke Ridnour, because apparently there’s some sort of twisted joke going on.

Can't even imagine how Ridnour dealt with the whirlwind couple of weeks. Talk about an uncertain future. As the DeAndre Jordans saga has further proven, you can never too sure of anything during NBA Free Agency.
