After signing with the Swiss basketball ball club Lugano Tigers, San Antonio Spurs’ 2010 draftee is continuing to dominate as he helped the Tigers defeat the Stawings 98 to 65 on Sunday. Richards led the Tigers with a double-double and 2-0 start.
Though he did not make the cut to participate in the 2011 Eurobasket last month, Richards had some dominating games.
With the Tigers on Sunday, he posted 19 points, 11 rebounds, and one block while shooting 9-of-13 from the field in 29 minutes of action.
Richards will have the opportunity to showcase his talents against Fribourg who is the third ranked team in the field.
With the lockout now looking like it might continue past Christmas, Richards can only to continue to work on his game with the Tigers for the rest of the season. If there is a season, there’s little possibility that the Spurs will bring him into training camp and buy out his contract.
For Richards and the Spurs, their time to join forces will most likely have to wait until the 2012-13′ season.
