Chet Holmgren Draft Profile


Chet Holmgren was able to compile impressive stats in numerous categories in his lone season at Gonzaga. However, the one figure that truly stands out in the table above has to be his 3.7 blocks per game. As a seven-footer who also boasts the speed and quickness of a guard, Holmgren was a terror for numerous opponents as a shot blocker and rim protector. He also has excellent coordination for a player of his size. Holmgren can slide laterally and play strong perimeter defense, a necessity in today’s NBA. On offense, his athleticism makes him a smooth finisher at the rim. He also has a great feel for the game and is not afraid to set up teammates with quality passes.


For Holmgren to truly excel at the next level, he clearly will need to add some muscle to his skinny, 196-pound frame. Because he is so light, he is vulnerable as a straight-up post defender. Even smaller forwards or big, strong guards are capable of backing him down. That figures to only be more evident when he begins playing against NBA-caliber size and talent. While Holmgren is a silky smooth finisher, his lack of size and strength also impacts his ability to finish through contact. A player of his size should also have a greater arsenal of post moves than what Holmgren currently possesses.
