Chet Holmgren is a seven-foot-one-inch shift moving Center who’s been called “7-Foot Guard.” Holmgren blocks shots like the greatest shot blockers of all-time but also guards on the perimeter. On offense he runs the floor like a gazelle, finishes above the rim, and shoots 3s with an effortless release.
Holmgren is currently projected all over the draft expert boards as the top choice for whatever NBA team wins the lottery in 2022. For 2021-22 Holmgren will play with Gonzaga, last year’s national runner-up that had former High School and AAU teammate Jalen Suggs.
