Richaun Holmes said he wants to be in the best shape of his life entering the 2017-18 season.
He's coming off a breakout season in Philly and really shined when Joel Embiid (knee) went down, averaging 13.6 points, 6.9 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.2 blocks, 1.0 steals and 0.7 3-pointers on 58.1 percent shooting after the All-Star break. As for his offseason plans, Holmes said he wants to add strength, become a better pick-and-roll defender and to keep working on his perimeter shooting -- he shot 35.1 percent from deep last season, so he has a good foundation to build on. 76ers coach Brett Brown called Holmes a "lightning-in-the-bottle" player and he should be the favorite to back up Embiid in 2017-18. If you draft The Process, handcuffing him with Holmes makes too much sense.
