The Raptors took a flyer on Bruno Caboclo , a late first-round draft pick whose body type intrigued the team. Years later, the intrigue has been replaced by developmental fatigue and Caboclo is now bound for Sacramento.

"We've got a good mixture of veteran players, young players and guys that are going to be a big part of the future and veteran players who have been around the corner a few times before. It's a good mix."

Richardson, 22, has played in 25 games with the Kings this season, averaging 3.5 points, 1.3 rebounds and 0.5 assists.

The New Jersey native was selected by the Charlotte Hornets in the second round of the 2016 draft and made his NBA debut with the Kings on October 26, 2016.

Caboclo, a first-round pick (20th overall) by the Raptors in 2014, has played 25 games over four seasons with Toronto.

He played in two games this year, registering one rebound, one assist and one steal.
