Thank you J-Rich. You truly were a bright spot on this team, and it's been fun to watch you grow.

I wish you nothing but personal success in Philly, while not having team success.

Hopefully in a year we will be talking about him like Toronto talks about Demar lol

Was fun while we had him! Gonna miss him and I loved his potential but he definitely reached a ceiling. Nothing but the best of luck to him and I’m sure he’ll help Philly get father than us with his new role.

thank you for your time with the Heat JRich. one of the best, if not the best, 2nd round pickups in team history.

i'm sorry that phishing poster had to be your appreciation thread op, but that's life sometimes.

He was phenomenal. Best of luck to Josh. Remember his rookie year showing up and just draining threes. Loved him since.

I don’t like trading away JRich. I saw him as part of our young guys we got going on here and he has improved every year. Butler seems like a bandaid for us, guess we will see. I know we are trying hard to still be competitive in the East, but damn its been tough.

Butler is definitely better, but he’s also twilighting his career. His contract would be heavier than his value. Would still roll with it though.

JRich isn't actually gone yet. If I had my wish, I'd keep JRich around instead and crawl under the luxury tax for good (a side benefit of trading Whiteside). If he really got traded last night, I'll return to post. He's been an excellent player for us and a delight on the court and off. I will remain a fan. Great Twitter feed too.

On more than one occasion, I would yell out at the TV "The New Glove" when J-Rich picked someone's pocket at a key moment in the game.

I like him enough that I wouldn't be super upset if the Butler trade broke down and he came back. That should say something, Butler is a legit star. A classic diamond-in-the-rough case for the Heat, only difference is that he didn't get a ridiculous contract or stop developing. Should be a very good contributor in Philly. Farewell J-Rich.

Good player. But he showed last season that he couldn't maintain an above average efficiency with a higher usage. High end 3 and D complimentary starter. Not a star.

The best 2nd round pick we've ever made? I'd say so.

felt the same way, we gave him the keys(freedom to shoot, higher usage) in early in the season but yea he just wasnt efficient.
