Jrue Holiday is one of the NBA stars who is on top of the trading blocks this year. After being in the news headlines for a long time, an NBA writer has come up with a fresh proposal.
A popular news writer has proposed a 3 team trade deal between the Philadelphia 76ers, Los Angeles Lakers, and Portland Trail Blazers. Here is the potential trade scenario!
The Jrue Holiday Trade Proposal
- The Philadelphia 76ers will receive Jrue Holiday.
- The Los Angeles Lakers will receive James Harden.
- The Portland Trail Blazers will receive Norman Powell, Terance Mann, and Bones Hyland.
The Sixers are highly unlikely to acquire Jrue Holiday in a trade deal, as reported by Kyle Neuback of PHLY Sports. The reason why Neuback reported such a piece of news is because of James Harden.
Harden has requested a trade from the Sixers and will never play with the Sixers again in his life. He also called the general manager of the Sixers, Daryl Morey, “a liar” during the Adidas Tour of China.
Jrue Holiday Stats, Career Average, and Next Move!
Jrue Holiday is one of the best players in the league. He played a total of 67 games for the Milwaukee Bucks last year, where he averaged around 19.3 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 7.4 assists.
Holiday signed a 4-year contract extension with the Bucks for a whopping $135 million in April 2021.
As reported by Barry Jackson and Anthony Chiang of The Miami Herald, the All-NBA defender would love to join the Miami Heat, the Los Angeles Lakers, the Los Angeles Lakers, the Boston Celtics, the Chicago Bulls, and the Sixers.
The California native started his career with the Philadelphia 76ers. The point guard has a career average of 16.4 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 6.5 assists while playing for the Sixers, Bucks, and Pelicans.
Holiday has been named 5 times All-Defensive teams alongside 2 times All-Star teams. The shooting guard has also helped the Bucks win the NBA 2021-22 title against the Phoenix Suns in 6 games.
Jrue Holiday, I am forever thankful for your time with the Bucks. No one can take 2021 from us. This is not on you that you were moved. You are a Buck forever! 💕#21 4Life!

Holiday’s Next Destination
As of now, it is uncertain to determine Holiday’s next move. If he lands in the Bucks, the fans would be shocked, as reported by Jim Owczarski of The Milwaukee Journal Sentinal.
“Before I even won here I think I said I’m a Buck for life and I mean that like deep in my heart.”
“I don’t want to play for any other team. I think we have a chance to continue to do great things as the Bucks team and organization so I want to be in Milwaukee.”
But if the Sixers acquire Jrue Holiday in a deal, the organization could start with their Big 3, including Holiday, Joel Embiid, and Tyrese Maxey.
