It’s only two days away from the all important NBA Draft, so you’d assume draft news would be rocking. And it might be – just not for our Sacramento Kings.
The one tidbit that has come up today though is Adrian Wojnarowski’s mention of the Kings possible selection of Ryan Richards, the British left handed big man. Wojmarowski says:
British center Ryan Richards isn’t expected to get past the Kings with the 33rd pick.
Richard’s is still extremely young, only 19, and hasn’t been playing with the highest quality of competition. He’s made mention of his desire to leave the Euro League and would prefer the NBA D-League if he had to, so, the Kings wouldn’t have much trouble getting the young center to play with Reno if they desired. For those who haven’t seen Richards in action, here is a few highlights of him:
Richards has certainly woken up some GM’s in the past few weeks and he’s becoming quite an intriguing prospect. He’ll definitely be a project for some team, but, his upside continues to grow extremely rapid.
