31st: - New Mexico Thunderbirds - Anthony Richardson, Florida State

Richardson, a one time Hornet signing, is an athletic forward who graduated from Florida State in 2005. Since that time, he has done the rounds in Europe, most recently spending the last two years with Dutch team Eiffel Towers Den Bosch. The Dutch league isn't very good, but Richardson was a good player in it, averaging 13.3 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.3 steals last season whilst also being named to the All-Star game. He also won the 2009 dunk contest, and his performance can be watched here (if you are able to tolerate the terrible music):

One of the Eiffel Towers assistant coaches is former NBA player Sharone Wright. Some bonus trivia there.
