Rim protection and shot contest. Averaged 3.7 BPG.
Solid catch and shoot skills from three. Was at his best trailing and stepping into three point attempts from the top of the key after dribble penetration.
Versatile defender with switchability. Stayed in front of ball handlers well and uses his elite length to recover when beaten off the dribble.
Not great at shot creation off the dribble.
Decent handle in open space but not when looking to score.
Very thin frame. More physical and stronger players could cause issues at the next level.
Often deferred to teammates at the college level.
Only averaged 8.8 FGA per game.
Holmgren is a unique prospect with high-level skills on both sides of the ball. He has great rim-protecting instincts and the ability to guard along the perimeter. He was highly effective finishing at the rim and proved to be a capable catch-and-shoot 3pt shooter. Questions exist about his thin frame as well as his shot creation.

Volume Shooting Analytics:
Holmgren ranks high on the list of players with data significant enough to evaluate volume shooting potential. While the data indicates he struggles when taking few threes, he stars when taking a high volume. He ranks 4th of 22 eligible players as a volume shooter.
This data was created by AJ Wahl by ploting each game of a player's most recent season. The x-axis represents the amount of threes taken per minute, in order to normalize for minutes played. The y-axis is simply the player's three point percentage in that particular game. The line represents the trend between a player's three point volume, and their success. A upward slope means that a player gains efficiency as they shoot more often, and a downward slope means that a player loses efficiency the more shots they take. Note that 0.2 3PA/36 is roughly 7 3s, and 0.3 translates to 11 3s. Only players with an R^2 value above .04 were analyzed, to ensure that each player has at least some correlation between their attempts and their frequency.
Holmgren is a completely average big in terms of defensive versatility, falling in the 52nd percentile. He fouls slightly more than average, and does better guarding wings than ball handlers.
This data was hand-tracked by AJ Wahl and Bryon Cook. Every single defensive possesion of each player's season was analyzed. This dataset includes all possessions when the defender is guarding on-ball, in man-to-man, and against a player not within their position group who shoots the ball, is fouled, or commits a turnover. The percentile listed above is a players standing compared to their postion group calculated by compliling and weighing various different metrics derrived from the hand-tracked data. This data only measures a portion of a player's impact, but it is clear that the ability to defend out of one's position group is a vital skill to contributing to winning basketball at the professional level.
