Ryan Richards has been waived by the San Antonio Spurs ahead of NBA training camp.

It formally cuts ties with the ex-Great Britain international forward who was drafted by the Texan side in 2010.

Richards has since embarked on a nomadic tour that has taken in stops in Lebanon, Iran, China and Poland, among others, without catching on with a leading Euroleague club.

The Kent native, who quit the GB set-up after being cut ahead of EuroBasket 2011, recently insisted he was “100% focused to be in the NBA by 2018.”

Richards will, however, now be free to try out for other teams in 2017 with the Spurs no longer holding his NBA rights.
