NBA trade rumors: With Jrue Holiday on the block, should Sixers be in pursuit?


Article Summary:

It’s not completely unexpected, with many reporters tossing around Holiday rumors over the past couple of months, but it suggests the Pelicans are getting more serious about moving on from Holiday and focusing more on a competitive timeline that hinges on Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram.

The defensive end of the floor is where I would argue Philly gets the most value out of a Holiday addition – he is declining at this stage of his career, but a three-man group of Embiid-Simmons-Holiday is an absolute monster, with Simmons and Holiday giving you a two-headed monster to throw at perimeter matchups. Being a good guy doesn’t mean you’ll produce any more or less, as fans have witnessed with Tobias Harris the last year-and-a-half, but with Doc Rivers coming in and trying to bolster the culture, Holiday would be an asset, a guy who is willing to adapt based on what the team needs.

A swap centered around Horford for Holiday just seems to run counter to why the Pelicans would deal Holiday in the first place.
