Jason Richardson signed a non-guaranteed deal with the Atlanta Hawks this past Summer, but he won’t be attending the Hawks training camp to make his case for the roster.

The 34-year-old veteran announced his retirement via Instagram earlier today:

While he never made an all-star team or won a championship, Richardson left his place in the NBA in dunk form. He is one of three players in NBA history to win the Slam Dunk Contest in back-to-back years.

He finishes his career with an average of 17.1 points, 2.7 assists, and 5 rebounds per game on 47% shooting from the field. He played for the Warriors, Bobcats, (now the Hornets), Suns, Magic, and the 76ers.
