The Nets openly talked to the New Orleans Pelicans about a potential deal for Jrue Holiday. Both teams spoke with each other right before the most recent NBA trade deadline. Brian Windhorst from ESPN revealed this news.
“That’s certainly something that’s been out there,” Windhorst said that on The Hoop Collective podcast. “I think it’s been reported but if it hasn’t, I found out somewhere. I don’t think it was from an executive —maybe it was— that there was some discussion between the Nets and Pelicans in February.” He added.
On the podcast, Windhorst openly said that the Nets should trade Caris LeVert and Jarrett Allen as part of a package for Holiday.
Holiday, 30, is all set to jump into the final year of a five-year deal worth close to $132 million. It will earn $26.285 million in 2021-22 seasons. In order to become unrestricted free agent they have to get this done first.
In the last season, Holiday got averaged 19.1 points and 6.7 assists in 34.7 minutes per game.
