Why did Brett Brown hate Holmes so much? From not giving him any minutes, to trading him as soon as he gets the GM job

Seems like a low price for Holmes.

I was always super high on him but it is true that his defense is just not good enough. He looks lost out there and it is an awareness thing. At this stage it is not something that will be able to be improved unfortunately.

Although he brings energy and excitement and is as athletic as anyone else in the league. Good pick up for the Suns. Hopefully he will get more time there. Phoenix fans are in for some fun times with Rich on the court.

Obviously Brown has a heap of faith in Bolden. More than I do, that's for sure.

He did play defense, wtf are you talking about? He put the locks on KAT and outperformed him when Embiid was out. He was never pouting despite being on the bench the whole season, that was Bayless.

I'm a huge Brown fan, but he's wrong on this one. He just didn't like Holmes. Bolden isn't ready yet.

Yeah I agree. Bolden didn't impress me in summer league the way I hoped he would.

The Sixers should have gotten something more for Holmes out of this deal.

It is a little disappointing.

I liked Holmes too. Sixers just handing Suns players these past few weeks.

Yo Holmes smell you later.

His defensive IQ is poor. Maybe a change of scenery will help him. But I wasnít impressed with him. Take away jumping high and eh.

I don't have a problem with them offloading Holmes but they need to get more.

This week they have essentially given up TLC, Anderson and Holmes for Muscala and $1 million.

I love Brett Brown as a coach but it is time to get a real full time GM. He may have lost faith in these guys but giving them away for nothing seems stupid to me.

I agree we need a GM but I donít think a GM wouldíve got much more than those dudes. Instead of cash back a GM wouldíve got what 2 future 2nd rd picks? TLC hardly played second half of season. He showed no progression when he did play. Justin Anderson is living off of high energy defensive guy. But brings nothing else to the table. What more do you think youíre getting from them? Other tuna cans that a GM would have probably brought here. Eh, Iím cool.
