Sacramento Kings center Richaun Holmes reportedly is looking for a four-year deal in free agency that is worth around $80 million.

Holmes, 27, has put together a couple of impressive season with the Kings, but it is unclear if Sacramento would be willing to meet his price.

“According to a league source, Holmes’ team is looking for a contract in the neighborhood of four-years and $80 million,” NBC Sports Bay Area’s James Ham wrote. “That’s a steep price to pay, but Holmes will be coveted on the open market.

 

“Whether he lands an offer in the $80 million range has yet to be seen. That figure seems above market value, but a player is worth what someone is willing to pay. If his agent gets that type of money for Holmes, then more power to him.”

During the 2020-21 season, Holmes averaged 14.2 points and 8.3 rebounds per game while shooting 63.7 percent from the field.

Holmes doesn’t really space the floor, as he shot just 18.2 percent from 3-point range during the 2020-21 campaign.

However, he did block 1.6 shots per game and has averaged at least 12.3 points and 8.1 rebounds in each of the past two seasons.

The Kings have a lot of holes to fill if they want to make the playoffs, but giving Holmes $80 million may not be the wisest way to build a competing roster next season.
