Jeremy Richardson

Richardson was selected in the first round (second overall) of the 2007 D-League expansion draft by the Mad Ants.

On December 20, 2007, he became the first NBA Call-Up in Mad Ants history when he was signed by the Memphis Grizzlies. Prior to that, he was averaging 28.5 points, 6.6 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.63 steals in 41.5 minutes in eight games for the Mad Ants. He was named Performer of the Week, after averaging 35 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 4.0 assists in two games during the week of December 3, shooting 53.2% from the field (25/47), including scoring a league season-high 40 points against Iowa on November 29.

Richardson appeared in 3 games for the Grizzlies. He was waived by Memphis on January 7, and signed three days later with the San Antonio Spurs. In five games with the Spurs, he played in five games, averaging two points per contest while making his first NBA start.

In 2008, Richardson was named MVP of the D-League All Start Game, scoring 22 points on 9 of 15 shooting. Shortly afterwards, on February 18, he was signed to another 10-day contract by the Atlanta Hawks. He appeared in 19 games for the Hawks during the rest of the season, averaging 1.6 points per game.
