I’m not sure if we’ve ever seen a British player with all the physical tools 2010 Spurs draft pick Ryan Richards has. At 7 feet tall, range out to the three point line, mobility, athleticism and vision, and still just 20 years old, he will go as far as he wants to.
Getting back on the court this summer with the Great Britain U20s after a long season out rehabbing from shoulder surgeries, Richards had little trouble dominating any defender that was thrown at him. His performances with the U20s, where he averaged 22.3 points and 8.1 rebounds per game, earned him a call up to the Senior side where he was the last cut from the team.
Richards is suiting up for Swiss-based side Lugano Tigers this season, where he has already been putting up impressive numbers.
The future is bright. Check out his highlights!
