Richardson, a one time Hornet signing, is an athletic forward who graduated from Florida State in 2005. Since that time, he has done the rounds in Europe, most recently spending the last two years with Dutch team Eiffel Towers Den Bosch. The Dutch league isn't very good, but Richardson was a good player in it, averaging 13.3 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.3 steals last season whilst also being named to the All-Star game. He also won the 2009 dunk contest, and his performance can be watched here (if you are able to tolerate the terrible music):
However, Richardson's time in Holland did not end well. He is now embroiled in a bitter dispute with the team over outstanding money, as is the team's former coach, Sharone Wright. The comments on that post for the most part don't support his viewpoint; nevertheless, the unpleasant reality is that this sort of thing happens a lot.
Former Florida State forward and one time Hornet Anthony Richardson is playing in Holland. In his second season with the Eiffel Towers Den Bosch, Richardson is averaging 12.6 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.1 assists in Dutch league play, with basically identical 12.9/4.8/1.8 numbers in the EuroChallenge. For an explanation of why a Dutch team is named after the most famous of all French landmarks, read this comment on a very old post.
One of the Eiffel Towers assistant coaches is former NBA player Sharone Wright. Some bonus trivia there.
Note: Non-US teams that the player
has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in
that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not
the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where
no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League
split in Japan.
