Richards joins the Swarm after appearing in eight games with the Hornets, totaling 11 points and six rebounds in 23 minutes. Richards was acquired by the Hornets in a trade with the New Orleans Pelicans, who selected him 42nd overall out of Kentucky in the 2020 NBA Draft.

This is Richards second assignment to the G League of the 2020-21 season.
