Lanky seven-foot center Ryan Richards has signed with Polish team Asseco Prokom Gdynia according to Sportando.
Richards, selected by the San Antonio Spurs with the 49th pick in the 2010 Draft, will join a club that won the Polish championship last season. The competition isn’t at an NBA level but it should be enough to deter Richards from simply imposing his will.
The 21-year-old Richards played with the Spurs summer league team this season, averaging 3.3 points and 2.8 rebounds in 11 minutes per game.
With a capability to shoot from the perimeter and elite length, Richards has been an intruguing developmental prospect since his inclusion in the Spurs’ program.
He also has some experience with the Brittish national program as he participated with the Under 18 National team in 2009.
