Hornets’ Nick Richards: Dominant in bench role

Richards tallied 26 points (9-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 10 rebounds and four blocks over 25 minutes in Sunday’s 122-109 loss to the G-League Ignite.

Richards came off the bench during his first game with the Swarm, but he was highly efficient and posted a double-double in his debut. Even if he continues to play a bench role in the G League, Richards figures to receive plenty of opportunities with Greensboro.
