Richaun Holmes played 36 minutes on Saturday against the Bucks for 17 points, 10 rebounds and a block.
Holmes added three triples to his line but also had four turnovers. He has been one of the best pickups since Joel Embiid was shut down. To convey just how good he has been, he is ranked top-40 in the last 26 games due to his ability to not hurt owners anywhere. Holmes is averaging a steal and 1.2 blocks, and it is difficult to get that from the wire. If he can keep shooting well, he could start next year alongside Embiid. He won’t be as good but can still provide steals and blocks so he could be a sneaky pick late in the draft.
