Raptors Waive Luke Ridnour Who Was Traded 4 Times In the Past Month

Published on July 9th, 2015 by Astramskas, David | 619 views

Luke Ridnour was no stranger to trades before this off season.  His future draft rights were even traded before the 2003 NBA Draft.  Between that draft day and 2014, he became a member of 5 different teams and even played twice with the team (Bucks) who traded his draft rights.

That sounds like a lot of travelling for even the typical NBA journey man but that was nothing compared to what happened to him in the past month.  Between June 25th of 2015 and June 30th, he was traded 4 times with his final destination being the Toronto Raptors.  On July 9th, the Raptors waived Ridnour allowing him to finally choose where he would like to play.

“To be honest, it’s been pretty funny for us,” Ridnour said on ESPN Radio’s Mike and Mike. “Being in the NBA, you never know what’s going to happen and coming into free agency, I knew I had a contract that was desirable for a trade chip or whatever it might be. Getting the updates daily was pretty funny.”
