Jonathan Holmes NBA Draft Scouting Report

6-9 - Small Forward - Texas

A strong, powerful wing prospect with an ever-improving offensive game.

Pros
Very well built and strong player who is physically ready for the NBA.   Has long arms, broad shoulders and good strength. Holmes is very well coordinated and has a quick first step.

Has improved his outside shooting dramatically and is now a real threat from three point range. Has excellent mechanics and a quick release on his jumper.

A stout defender and good rebounder, Holmes plays with a lot of effort and intensity. Plays an unselfish game and has a lot of attributes that NBA teams are looking for.

Cons
Still has room for improvement at the offensive end including getting better off the dribble and as a play-maker. A good but not great free throw shooter.

Doesn't provide a lot of steals or blocks

Projection: late first to mid second round pick in the 2015 NBA Draft
