Don’t go to sleep just yet, we got some late-night NBA news. The Bucks have just traded for Jrue Holiday. You are in win-now mode if you are the Bucks and are trying to keep Giannis happy. Now, you trade for one of the best two-way players in the league, creating a big three of Giannis, Eric Bledsoe, and Jrue Holiday. That’s going to be lethal. The only part of this trade I’m not in favor of for the Bucks is how many picks they gave up, three future first-rounders, and two pick swaps. That’s a lot of damage for the future if Giannis leaves. But hey keep him happy and don’t worry about that. The Bucks must be feeling confident about Giannis staying.
Last year, Holiday averaged 19.1/6.7/4.8 to go along with 1.6 steals per game. Holiday got snubbed from the all NBA defensive team last season but made the defensive teams the previous two seasons. Holiday is considered one of the best defenders in the league.
Holiday is one of the best two-way players in the league and now will be playing alongside the Greek Freak. The Bucks have formed their own big three.
