Last season, Holmes averaged career highs in points (14.2) rebounds (8.3) and blocks (1.6) per game with the Kings. Holmes has been a consistent contributor for Sacramento and has become a fan favorite due to his high energy.
Despite the Kings acquiring other centers in Tristan Thompson and Alex Len this offseason, Holmes will remain the focal point at the center position and likely take on an even larger role with the team. Holmes has improved every season he has played and at age 27 is set to have another career year with Sacramento.
