NBA Draft Scouting: Chet Holmgren


Height - 7’0

Weight - 195 lbs

Wingspan - 7’6

Over the last few years, Sam Presti has prioritised adding big skilled players. In the 2020 Draft, he took two jumbo playmakers in Aleksej Pokusevski and Vit Krejci. In 2021, Presti then took Josh Giddey, a 6’8 point guard.

Presti has always erred on the side of size. His picks in the past include the likes of Terrance Ferguson and Josh Huestis, two lengthy athletic wings who could jump out of the gym. However, his approach has changed over the last few years and Sam has begun to value skill more highly.
