Sixers Trade Richaun Holmes to Suns

Tyson Chandler Suns

The final two seasons of Bolden's four-year deal are non-guaranteed, league sources told The Athletic.

The Philadelphia 76ers have traded power forward Richaun Holmes to the Phoenix Suns for cash. The move, with the Suns capable of absorbing Holmes' entire $1.6 million contract, freed up enough cap space for the Sixers to sign Bolden.

The Sixers acquired Mike Muscala from the Hawks on Thursday in a three-team trade and re-signed Amir Johnson this offseason, so Holmes was expendable. According to a source, the team has had discussions about trading Jerryd Bayless to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Kyle Korver. He played last season with the Israeli club, Maccabi Tel Aviv.

Israel uses live fire, tear gas against Palestinian protesters
Jonathan Conricus said Palestinians hurled seven grenades and several explosive devices at troops along the border on Friday. The soldier's murder was what prompted Israel to launch numerous airstrikes against Hamas, which are still ongoing.

The hope was that he would have joined the team last season after being a second-round selection, the No. 36 overall pick, in the 2017 National Basketball Association draft. Bolden, a native of Australia, joined the 76ers for summer league this month and projects as a rotational big man for coach Brett Brown.

Holmes, who turns 25 in October, averaged 6.5 points and 4.4 rebounds in 48 games last season.

He was the 37th overall pick in the 2015 National Basketball Association draft.
