Malachi Richardson scored 20 points on 6-of-12 shooting (3-of-4 3PTs, 5-of-9 FTs) with seven rebounds, one assist and one steal in Sunday’s Summer League loss.
Richardson can fill it up when he gets hot but the defensive side of the ball is going to be his biggest issue, and that’s before we get to shot selection. If he didn’t have success offensively in this environment we’d be surprised as offense was the reason he was drafted in the first round. His role for the Kings this season will be determined by what happens when they trade one or all of Rudy Gay, Kosta Koufos and Ben McLemore.
