There are three certainties in life: death, taxes and Luke Ridnour being traded.
The 34-year-old point guard was shipped from the Oklahoma City Thunder to the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday, along with cash, in exchange for a trade exception and the rights to forward Tomislav Zubcic.
Ridnour averaged just four points and two assists per game last season, so what’s the big deal? Well, let’s just say he’s had a busy few days.
Ridnour was on the Orlando Magic until June 24, when he was shipped to the Memphis Grizzlies for a draft pick. One day later, the Grizzlies sent him to the Charlotte Hornets in return for Matt Barnes. Just hours later, Ridnour was on the move again, this time to the Thunder along with a draft pick for Jeremy Lamb.
In short, Ridnour has been traded four times. In the last six days.

According to a Reddit user, Ridnour has passed Drew Gooden as the most traded active NBA player. According to NBA.com’s John Schuhmann, Ridnour’s summer of adventure might not be over.

Don’t unpack those bags, Luke.
