Beginning Thursday, the Heat can offer Richardson a contract up to four years in length and for as much as $43 million in total value, with Richardson having the option of accepting it by the NBA-imposed deadline of the start of the regular season or opting instead, if he chooses, to become a restricted free agent next summer, with Miami having the right the exceed the cap to keep him. The Heat is expected to discuss an extension with him, and my impression is that Richardson will at least consider it, though a strong case could be made for gambling on himself and waiting for restricted free agency next summer.
Storyline: Josh Richardson Extension
The Heat made a strong presentation to free agent Gordon Hayward on Saturday and emerged believing it went very well. Hayward was greeted by five Heat players – Hassan Whiteside, Udonis Haslem, Josh Richardson, Tyler Johnson and free agent James Johnson. He also met with president Pat Riley, coach Erik Spoelstra, Alonzo Mourning and several other coaches and executives.

The Miami Heat have made their first of their offseason commitments, with Josh Richardson’s $1.5 million 2017-18 salary to become guaranteed Friday and the team to meet Okaro White’s $226,000 partial-guarantee Saturday deadline. For Richardson, it is the first of two contract deadlines this offseason, with the third-year guard also eligible in August for a four-year extension.
