Biography: Richmond was named Illinois' Mr. Basketball and a McDonald's All-American as a high school senior, and he arrived in Champaign with plenty of fanfare last fall. He didn't quite make the splash some expected, though he certainly showed signs - particularly a mid-January stretch against Michigan State and Ohio State in which he totaled 32 points and 15 rebounds. Richmond has an NBA frame but not an NBA-ready body, one reason many thought he'd return to play another year under coach Bruce Weber's watch. But he never really seemed to fit in with the Illini, and rumors of Richmond transferring popped up after a midseason incident with teammate Brandon Paul. Richmond is an athletic wing who can play either the two or the three, and he's at his best in up-tempo systems where he has a chance to get out and run. His length can make him an outstanding defender if he commits himself, and he can also jump out of the gym. Where Richmond runs into trouble is with his ball handling. He's not good enough to create his own shot on a consistent basis right now, something that really held him back at Illinois. He's a solid finisher around the rim and if he can add the weight necessary to consistently attack the basket, Richmond could be something special. A team that feels it can get Richmond to live up to his potential - and hit the weight room - shouldn't hesitate taking him late in the first round or early in the second.
