Richaun Holmes
PF/C, 6’10, 245lbs, 23 years old, 2 years of experience

An underappreciated draft steal, Holmes has taken a lot of athletic potential and a limited collection of skills and applied them precisely in the way he should; by throwing himself at the rim in transition or when rolling, boarding, trying to block everything, using his spring and athleticism, and sometimes getting touches down on the block. Holmes even added a pick-and-pop three this season, and while the results are 35% shooting on wide open attempts, it’s a decent start. With the fouls down, efficiency up and rebounding way up, Holmes proved himself a rotation centre this past season. Pretty much the opposite of Okafor, and that’s to his credit.

Player Plan: Two years at the minimum salary remaining, one unguaranteed, one as a team option. Really good at what he does. Keep as a very cheap back-up playing way above his price tag.
