   2014 Summer League rosters - Miami

Eli Holman - Regular summer league attendee Holman is back, having spent last season in Turkey playing for Usaf. There, he did usual Eli Holman-esque things - grabbing 9.4 rebounds in only 28.5 minutes per game, as well as scoring 13.5 points in that time (almost all from inside the foul line), and fouling everyone who gets near him. Physical, tough and aggressive, if unathletic and not much of a rim protector, Holman's paint finishes and pick-and-roll looks are tailor made for European basketball, where his lack of breakneck speed matters less. He projects less favourably at the NBA level, particularly defensively, but rebounds pretty much always translate, so he could have a role.

   2013 Summer League rosters, Orlando Summer Pro League - Boston

Eli Holman

Holman probably won't play much here due to the presence of Melo, Iverson and Olynyk - summer league is for them to develop. If he does play, he'll pile up the rebounds - Holman always does, and last year was no exception, averaging 9.4 rebounds in only 28 minutes per game for Hapoel Eliat in Israel. He also racks up the fouls, averaging three per game in that time, the side effect of playing entirely at the rim on both ends. Holman isn't afraid to mix it up, take the contact, give the foul, and can finish, and he moves well for one so strong. His wingspan is also huge, which offsets his being an inch or two short. But he's very limited to the post.

The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
