Surrey Scorchers are delighted to announce the signing of former NBA draft pick and GB international Ryan Richards on a season-long deal!
Creon Raftopoulos has moved quickly to secure the services of the 29-year-old Center, as he returns to SSP for a third spell after short stints with the club in 2018 and 2019.
The 6’11 big man has enjoyed a decorated career to date, including being drafted with the 49th pick of the 2010 NBA draft by the San Antonio Spurs.
He linked up with the Scorchers in 2018 while he was recovering from an injury, and returned once again in 2019 before moving on to play in Iran.
Most recently suiting up for Phoenix Brussels in Belgium, Richards is back for a full season with the Scorchers, and will link up once again with Creon Raftopoulos and good friend Tayo Ogedengbe.
