Would he be the missing piece the Thunder needed to finally achieve greatness?
Will he be an All-Star?
Or will he be bust and a missed opportunity for the team?
Chet Holmgren’s stats per game through 3 Summer League contests:

So far, so good.
Holmgren has played in the three Summer League games so far and has really shown his worth.
During these games, he has averaged 15.3 points, 9 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 steal, and 4 blocks.
There is definitely room for growth but Holmgren looks like the sort of player everyone was hoping he’d be.
Imagine how he’ll perform when he officially enters the league in the fall.
The Heroics Of Holmgren
He’s razor-thin, tall, and fast.
Some have said he could be the sort of guy who can not only defend and stop plays (hence the four blocks) but can also shoot well too.
A threat from both sides of the court is just what the Thunder need.
However, even with his great play in the Summer League, Holmgren has a lot to prove.
Performing during the regular NBA season is a lot different than the Summer League.
His opponents won’t go nearly as easy on him when the actual season starts in a few months.
But there is no denying Holmgren is certainly proving himself to be a rookie to watch.
Yes, his numbers might go down a bit when he is going against NBA superstars but, for now, he’s a central and bright part of his squad.
