So why now and what makes Holmes different from Nnaji? Plus, can the Dayton Flyers star really jump from the A-10 to being useful on a contender right away?

“He’s been a pretty prominent prospect for the last couple of years but I think the jump he took in skill, making the three-point shot took him to a different level as a prospect,” Nuggets general manager Calvin Booth said Wednesday night. “And I think I just like guys that carry the load for a team. They won a lot. He played really different defenses that tried to shut him down. He has a lot of experience in pressure situations. He can play both sides of the ball. I think his defense will be better to slow I think he had to carry a heavy load for that team and had to worry about getting in foul trouble. So there would be times when you watch him live or on tape where you’re like, ‘Can you really guard?’ But I expect that to be better at this level since he has less responsibility. And I think offensively just as somebody that helps, he can pass, he can shoot, he can catch in tight spaces and make plays and make little touch shots that Joker makes so he just has a lot of game.”

At 6-foot-10, the Arizona native exits Dayton after his junior season in the A-10 where he averaged a 30th-best in the country 20.4 points with 8.5 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 2.1 blocks per game. He hit a three-a-game on much-improved 39% shooting. This led Holmes’ Flyers to the second round of the NCAA Tournament this spring. They went 71-31 in his three-year college career playing under Anthony Grant.

“I don’t think all rookies are made the same,” Booth said. “You have the 18 and 19-year-old guys that may or may not have more upside and then you have some other guys that are accomplished and for all intents and purposes maybe more ready for high-pressure NBA games than some guys on NBA rosters. I think DaRon is one of those guys, has a high IQ, and knows how to play in the different styles and different scenarios so I think he has a very good transmitting plug-and-play”
