San Antonio Spurs 2nd Round Draft Prospect: Richaun Holmes

By George Middleton

Richaun Holmes: 21-years old, Bowling Green, Power Forward/Small Forward

Draft Express Measurements: 6″9.5, 243-pounds, 7″1.5 wingspan

2014-15 Stats: 14.7 points, 8.0 rebounds, 0.8 assists, 2.6 blocks, 0.7 steals, 56% field goals, 71% free-throws, 42% threes, 28.5 minutes

Quick Season Review: The Bowling Green Falcons had a solid season as they went 21-12. Richaun Holmes was a primary factor in their success. Their season ended against Eastern Michigan, as they lost to them in the Mid-American Conference Tournament second round. Their season continued as they played in the College Basketball Invitational, but they lost in the first round against Canisius. The best game of the season for Holmes was against Kentucky State. Holmes finished with 29 points and 9 rebounds.

Strengths: Good athlete (36-inch vertical). Good face-up jumper with improving range. Runs floor well. Terrific shot-blocker. Defends well. Good rebounder. Long wingspan. Improving prospect. Finishes with contact.

Weaknesses: Must continue to add range on jumper. Passing must improve. Ball-handling can use work. Played weak competition in college. Shot mechanics are shaky.

Where He Would Help Spurs?

Richaun Holmes is a good athlete with a solid midrange shot. He is an energy guy that has more potential than many second round prospects.

NBA Comparison: Marvin Williams

Like Marvin Williams, Richaun Holmes can play a little both of each forward spot and both have solid face-up games. However neither player don’t possess post moves either.
