Joshua Michael Richardson was born on September 15, 1993 in Edmond, Oklahoma. Josh's family has been one of his most grounded emotionally supportive networks and his family life spins around his folks and more seasoned sister. His mother Alice Richardson is an appointed Baptist and a resigned lieutenant colonel of the U.S. Flying corps. Her better half, Josh's father was a fireman for Oklahoma City. J-Rich's sister, Alex Richardson is similarly a basketballer. She played for the Oklahoma State University and later moved to Central Oklahoma University where she also played volleyball.

Career and Net Worth

The Miami Heat wanted Josh Richardson during the 2015 NBA Draft and chose him in the second round with the 40th pick. He then signed a 3-year contract with his new squad. Josh didn't get the opportunity to settle in with the group promptly as he got assigned to the Sioux Falls Skyforce of the NBA G-League in December. Fortunately, he was reviewed the following month and was then promoted to the NBA to get his shot.

In July 2019, the Jimmy Butler sign-and-trade deal from Philadelphia to Miami is finally finished after many tries. In the arrangement, Butler will go the Heat and Josh Richardson will advance toward Philly, which were the two fundamental pieces in the first arrangement that hit a tangle. The change is that rather than Dallas being the third group and Goran Dragic going there, Dragic remains in Miami, which rather sends Hassan Whiteside to the Trail Blazers and a first-round pick to the Clippers. The Blazers will send Meyers Leonard to the Heat and Moe Harkless to the Clippers.

The Heat plotted for Butler before Philly grabbed him from Minnesota a year ago, and now they, at last, get him subsequent to parting with what was probably their most prized resource in Josh Richardson.

Marriage, Wife and Kids

The NBA guard and small forward, Josh Richardson has been dating Heat dancer Amber Sade Rock. The two spent weekends enjoying one another’s company on the Miami beaches. They were also seen attending many sporting events together. Richardson has been seeing Amber for years now on the low because relationships between players and cheerleaders are frowned upon. Now that Josh is a member of the 76ers, some speculate how long their relationship will last and if Amber will make the move with him.
