Sixers Tinder: Richaun Holmes escapes logjam with a defined role

Sixers Tinder: Richaun Holmes escapes logjam with a defined role

Richaun Holmes has developed into a legitimate, long-term backup for Joel Embiid. At multiple points this past season, 23-year-old Richaun Holmes struggled to find minutes in Brett Brown’s rotation; excessive clutter in the frontcourt did him no favors. Holmes didn’t make a stink about playing time during the trying period, and it made his late-season run much more enjoyable, as the big man was a professional throughout the process. Holmes racked up 14 DNPs in 22 games prior to the All-Star break, but when Nerlens Noel was unceremoniously dealt at the trade deadline and Joel Embiid’s...

Brett Brown highlights list of keepers from 2016-17 Sixers

In his press conference on Friday, Brett Brown named a list of players he feels the Sixers need to keep. With the 2016-17 season in the rearview mirror and all player exit interviews conducted, Sixers general manager Brett Brown held a press conference to put a wrap on an incredibly trying year for the organization. When asked about what players on the roster he believed were keepers, Brown made sure to highlight Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot, Richaun Holmes, Robert Covington, Dario Saric, Nik Stauskas and TJ McConnell. Here are the players Brown acknowledged as the...

Sixers-Pacers recap: Philly’s youngsters make the best of a bad situation

Sixers-Pacers recap: Philly’s youngsters make the best of a bad situation

TJ McConnell, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot and Richaun Holmes have proven why these meaningless late season games matter. The Sixers have been anything but watchable over the past few weeks, and it’s not entirely their fault. Injuries have hit the roster like the Plague, and the few remaining able-bodied players are dealing with fatigue and the general inexperience that comes with playing with a band of D-Leaguers and Tiago Splitter. As miserable as the team has been to watch in what has morphed into a rather disappointing season, Philadelphia’s lack of roster continuity has opened the doors...

Richaun Holmes selected top 10 in ESPN’s 2015 re-draft

Richaun Holmes is good, and the national media is starting to take note. As seasons pass, people are always quick to reflect on the previous year’s draft class. Words like “bust” and “steal” are thrown around before players even get the chance to prove themselves over a long period of time, effectively shaping how those specific classes are remembered in history. The draft class of 2015 is closing in on just their second pro season, but at this juncture, it doesn’t seem to have the kind of depth people originally thought it would. While Karl-Anthony Towns has lived up to the...

Hawks process the 76ers in second win in two nights

Atlanta strings together a pair of wins without Millsap in the lineup Tim Hardaway, Jr. hit a three-pointer two minutes and fifteen seconds into the game to give the Hawks a 5-3 lead and Atlanta never looked back, leading the rest of the way to a 99-92 win over the Philadelphia 76ers. Dwight Howard led the way for the Hawks with 22 points and 20 rebounds, including 8 offensive rebounds, against a Philadelphia team missing both Joel Embiid and Jahlil Okafor at the center position. The Sixers made it a game in the fourth quarter but never got closer than two points as the Hawks held on for...

76ers being very cautious with Jahlil Okafor (knee)

Philadelphia 76ers center Jahlil Okafor (knee) has said that the team is being "super cautious" with his health down the stretch in the regular season. What It Means: The 76ers are well out of playoff contention, and there's no reason for them to push the oft-injured Okafor and risk making things worse. He has missed the team's last two games, and it looks like he will probably miss some more time moving forward, giving Richaun Holmes and Shawn Long both bumps in playing time. Okafor has had an underwhelming sophomore season, averaging 11.8 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.2 assists and...
