The Philadelphia 76ers have signed their 17th player, agreeing to terms with second round pick Richaun Holmes, on Wednesday, a league source told Liberty Ballers.
Holmes, the No. 37 overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, will officially join Philadelphia on a multi-year contract. The first two seasons of which will be significantly guaranteed, per the source.
Holmes starred for Bowling Green after playing one year of junior college ball at Moraine Valley Community College in Palos Hills, Illinois. Holmes, who will turn 22 on October 15, parlayed an excellent showing at the Portsmouth Invitational into an invitation to the NBA Draft Combine in May. His stock continued to rise, as he excelled for the Sixers during three games of Summer League in Utah. Unfortunately for Holmes, he fractured an elbow during the team's Salt Lake finale.
The elbow injury did not require surgery, however, a league source informed Liberty Ballers on July 19. Holmes has continued to progress since, and will be a full participant in training camp.
UPDATE: Here are the terms of Holmes' four-year contract.
