Jrue Holiday is another player who has a player option at the end of his contract. That could mean that he opts into his $26.361 million season with the Bucks or he may chase something even larger. If Holiday has a big season playing on the same court as Antetokounmpo, he could be looking at pushing that figure north. It’s impressive, as he’d be turning down the final year of his five years $126 million contracts given to him by the New Orleans Pelicans.
At age 30, the veteran guard has been named a two-time All-Defensive Player and an All-Star. He’s also able to put up numbers on the offensive end. Last season, in 61 games, Holiday drained 19.1 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 6.7 assists.
Holiday is sure to make the Bucks a better team. If the Raptors were to pursue him, he could play alongside VanVleet and the pair could interchange in their positions having both played extensively in the one and two positions. It would be a strong addition but it would also possibly mean that the Toronto Raptors would have to overpay to make it happen.
