Jrue Holiday Becomes Extension Eligible On Friday 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Feb 23, 2021 11:58 pm

Jrue Holiday will become eligible for a four-year, $134.9 million extension with the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday.


The Bucks acquired Holiday before the start of the season, sending out a significant haul of future draft picks to the New Orleans Pelicans.


Holiday is averaging 16.4 points, 4.8 rebounds and 5.4 assists in 32.5 minutes per game with the Bucks.

I assume they will resign him as they pretty much have to... But that's a shoot ton of money for a guy with stats / a career like that...

would this wipe out /replace his $27M player option?

or it adds 4 beyond the option
(latter meaning the extension ends when he is 36 years old and he is a UFA again in July 2026)

They really have no choice but to resign him. They gave up a lot to get him and no one better is coming to Milwaukee via free agency.
