Pratt’s Play of the Day (November 2)

Richaun Holmes

Holmes has established himself as a key member of Sacramento’s core after re-signing with the Kings this summer. Through six games, the 6’10 big man is averaging a career-high 16.3 points and 10.5 rebounds per game. Holmes will look to continue building positive momentum after a season-high 43.75 DKFP performance against the Mavericks. The Jazz are tough defensively, as Holmes will be matching up with Rudy Gobert, but there’s a ton of upside for him at $6,300.
