PHI Power Forward: 6’10, 245 lbs; 3rd year, Bowling Green

NBA Role: (raw) athletic power forward • UnderDOG

A hyperactive, offensive rebounding big with a decent outside jumper, Richaun Holmes starred at Bowling Green before earning a roster spot with the Sixers in 2015*; Holmes is one of a few interesting forwards in Philly: face-up offense needs a good deal of work, though he’s further along than expected finishing near the rim – Holmes had more than a few posters his rookie campaign, finishes extremely hard off the roll catch; wingspan for days – gobbles up boards, developing discipline as a help-side shot-blocker; isn’t a great one-on-one defender, though should improve w/ more teaching and a better understanding of how to defend without being overzealous; what’s his role? – is Holmes a rare, power forward rim protector (& floor spacer) under Brett Brown?
