Justin said during the season the brothers, who played together as youngsters, have long wanted to play again on the same team, saying, “If we can play together, that would be a dream come true and we’d be successful doing it.’’ Of course, that also means the Pelicans could be in the mix for Justin. “Now it’s time to talk, time to figure it out,’’ Justin Holiday told The Post. “We’ll take some time off. We’ll sit and talk eventually. I’m excited to see him. The family thing first and we’ll figure it out after.’’
Jackson claimed to identify “12 players’’ on the roster he feels are a triangle fit, but admitted re-signing them is the big issue. “It’s the next thing to figure out,’’ Holiday said. “It’s going to be exciting — hopefully not too stressful. I’ve never been in this position before. Shoot, having multiple teams might wanting me is a first. I’ll consider all the options, hopefully take my time and make the right decision.’’
If point guard Jrue Holiday is to leave New Orleans as a free agent, the Knicks have an ace in the hole in drawing the former UCLA product the club passed up in the 2010 draft. Justin Holiday told The Post he and his brother have talked about playing together since they were kids. For the first time, the Holiday brothers actually can make that happen on a long-term basis. Both are free agents this summer for the first time, and the Knicks are likely to be in the market for a point guard with Derrick Rose’s chances of returning becoming slim.
“If we can play together, that would be a dream come true and we’d be successful doing it,’’ Justin Holiday told The Post on Friday. “We both want to win and both know each other’s game in and out. We both know what we’re going to get from each other when we play together. It just makes sense. “I’m not saying just because he’s my brother,’’ Holiday added. “But I know when we play together, good things happen because we know each other’s game so well. We do play hard on both ends of the floor. When you have that at both positions, it’s going to help.”
