Everybody in the NBA wants top get their hands on the next Hassan Whiteside — a late bloomer who been a force in the middle for the Miami Heat. The guy who may fit that profile is Eli Holman, formerly of the University of Detroit and now playing in China where he finished one assist shy of a triple-double in Game 1 of his team’s first-round playoff series. There are some remarkable similarities between their stories. But whether Holman jumps to the NBA after the Chinese playoffs or remains overseas remains an open question. For now, I have heard that there are three NBA teams interested, but that number should grow after Holman’s near triple-double of 15 points, 16 rebounds, and nine assists in Game 1 of the Guangsha-Liaonang series. Holman is 25, like Whiteside, and other similarities are remarkably coincidental, to say the least. SheridanHoops
