Sittingbourne basketball star Ryan Richards is at the eye of an Olympic storm after defecting from the Great Britain set-up to join Jamaica ahead of the London 2012 Games. The former Medway Park Crusaders star – who was drafted by NBA giants the San Antonio Spurs in 2010 – ended the season playing in the Georgian SuperLeague in a bid to prove his fitness and form before the Olympics. However the 6ft 11inc forward has decided to swap TeamGB for the nation of his father’s birth after winning seven senior caps last year. The 21-year-old confirmed to the KM Group: “I’m not involved with GB anymore,” but question marks remain about his eligibility under FIBA rules having represented Britain at senior level as well as under-20s.
You knew the Spurs wouldn’t make it through a draft night without taking a Euro. Ryan Richards, selected in the second round at No. 49, isn’t a name you need to know for now. He’s a true 7-footer, but only 19, and the Spurs will keep him stashed overseas for the time being. “He’s a gifted athlete, and a pretty good shooter,” general manager R.C. Buford said. “That shooting ‘4’ role for us has been pretty important. We’ll see how long it takes him to get ready for this opportunity.”
