Jonah Bolden joins 76ers to become Australia's newest National Basketball Association star

Jonah Bolden joins 76ers to become Australia's newest National Basketball Association star

Richaun Holmes played three seasons with the 76ers. However, sources told the Inquirer, the trade won't be completed in the coming days because the Sixers are working on another move.

The Sixers will send swingman Justin Anderson to the Hawks and shooting guard Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot to the Oklahoma City Thunder in the three-team trade.

There could be plenty of interest in him next season from a contending team that is looking to acquire additional depth in the frontcourt with a proven player. Former Sixers general manager Bryan Colangelo said that was the plan back on May 11. However, it soon became clear that the Sixers made the move in order to open up a roster spot.

Bolden spent last season playing for Maccabi Tel Aviv. These qualities should help him avoid being bought out by the Suns for at least the time being, as he will be penciled in as the starter for next season.

Bolden rejoined the 76ers for Summer League for the second straight year where he went on to average 6.5 points and 6 rebounds per game.

Bolden now joins a growing contingent of Aussies to make it in the National Basketball Association. Holmes averaged 7.4 points in a 156 career games, including 20 starts.
