Heat, Clippers, Lakers, Celtics, Bulls, Sixers appeal to Jrue Holiday

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Jrue Holiday in a Heat system defensively next to their core guys would fit like a glove
But seeing all this behind the scenes info with Cronin and Portland, there’s NO WAY they are picking up the phone to call now lol – 8:45 PM

Si eres @LAClippers, ¿traspasas por Jrue Holiday o James Harden?
Me parece que el mercado por La Barba afloja. Capaz que retorne a @Sixers con la cola entre las piernas.

Let’s say the Thunder could get Jrue Holiday for Lu Dort, Davis Bertans and picks.
Would you consider the Thunder a serious contender for the 2024 championship? – 7:28 PM

The “who starts” thing would get much more uncomfortable for the coaching staff (and probably fans) if you swapped out CP3 for Jrue. There would be a clear cut answer. – 7:04 PM

Jrue Holiday could help the Pelicans — but not how you think.
A Boston-New Orleans-Portland trade consisting of Holiday, Jonas Valanciunas, Robert Williams and Malcolm Brogdon makes sense for all parties involved.

A Jrue Holiday trade to the #Knicks is fun to think about — and he’d make the Knicks better, but not good enough to compete with Milwaukee or Boston, thus not good enough to justify trading for him in the first place.

Sean Highkin @highkin
My sense with the Jrue trade is that since Portland got mainly players back in the Dame deal, they’ll likely prioritize draft capital in this one. So whichever team offers the pick(s) they feel are best/highest upside is probably the deal they’ll go with. – 11:39 AM

Jrue Holiday to Miami, Chicago or Toronto makes sense given that all three teams were after Damian Lillard.

I like Tyler Herro, and he’s a good player.
There is no circumstance where he would return more for the Blazers right now in a trade than Jrue Holiday will return. And I’d much rather bet on 2028-2030 Milwaukee draft picks being valuable than 2028-2030 Miami picks. – 10:50 PM

More on this storyline

“It’s a bittersweet day for the city of Milwaukee. You get Dame, who is a great player, but you lose a great guy. Jrue took us to the promised land. I’m 10 years in now. I know it’s a business. At the end of the day, Jrue will alway be be my brother for life. He’s one of the best human beings I’ve been around. But we’ve got to focus on the goal to win the championship. Dame wants this. He’s hungry to win, and he’s going to push us. I’m very happy to have him on our team.” -via Bleacher Report / September 28, 2023
“Jrue is my f–king brother for life. I love his family. I love him. I appreciate him. I wish him nothing but the best. He blessed me with a f–king championship,” Antetokounmpo told B/R. “He’s the one who made that huge steal in Game 5 of the Finals. I went to battle with him multiple times. F–k basketball. F–k the media shit. This guy is my brother for life, and it’s always going to be like that. He’s going to thrive wherever he ends up.” -via Bleacher Report / September 28, 2023
