Remember that awesome TV show Where in the World is Carmen San Diego? Well, the concept of it is back — but this time, the main character is Luke Ridnour — an NBA player who no-one on Earth, let alone him, knows where he’s playing next season.
To recap: The team he played for last season, the Orlando Magic, traded him to the Memphis Grizzlies last week.

Before he could even land in Memphis, Ridnour was then dealt to Charlotte (hey, at least it’s a short connection!)

Not so fast my friend! Pack your bags, Luke, you’re now headed to Oklahoma City!

And finally, Luke is now officially one trade short of the NBA record (Quentin Richardson) for # of times a player has been traded in 1 week (traded from the New York Knicks to the Memphis Grizzlies to the Los Angeles Clippers to the Minnesota Timberwolves to the Miami Heat) with him being officially traded from the Thunder to the Toronto Raptors this morning.
We’re getting to the point that you could probably make a “Where will he land next?” drinking game out of this.
