Jerry Stackhouse: “The best Nick Richards that you’re going to see isn’t going to happen while he is at Kentucky”

Over the course of the last two seasons, the phrases “Nick Richards” and “NBA” couldn’t be more opposite of one another. While the 7-foot center out of Kingston, Jamaica possessed NBA size and length as a former five-star prospect, he simply didn’t have the skill or confidence to even sniff the professional ranks at any point over the course of his freshman and sophomore years in Lexington.

As a junior, though, Richards has not only solidified himself as a capable starting-quality center in the SEC; he has worked his way up the ranks as one of the top big men in all of college basketball and a sure-fire draft selection in the upcoming 2020 NBA Draft.
