After having a promising season cut short in January by a season-ending stress fracture in his right tibia, New Orleans Pelicans point guard Jrue Holiday was back penetrating between defenders Thursday at the team's practice facility. For the first time in six months after requiring surgery and having an extended rehabilitation schedule, he was finally cleared for contact work against his teammates this week for volunteer offseason drills.

There is a sense around the league that the Pelicans would be open to moving Eric Gordon and possibly Austin Rivers; however, deals involving Ryan Anderson, Tyreke Evans or Jrue Holiday are not of much interest to the Pelicans and without question former top pick Anthony Davis is off the board.

In an interview on the Pelican’s Web site Holiday says he expects to be cleared and be back on the court working out in August, which means he will be ready to go for training camp and the regular season. Holiday said he hasn’t done any work on the court since the surgery for a stress fracture in his shin, with the focus on rebuilding muscle around it. Which makes sense. NBCSports.com

Harris joked with the other executives sitting at the table that it was harder than he anticipated to build a winning team in the NBA and that inserting a high priced coach and throwing around a little cash to players wouldn’t get it done. It surely wouldn’t get it done over the long haul. Even during summer league, the 76ers made no secrets of what their plan this past season was going to be. They were going to put all their eggs and their playing time into their young guys and rebuild from the ground up, with one highly ranked insider honestly saying “How good could we have really been if Jrue Holiday was our best player?”. The comment was not a knock on Holiday, because that insider was clear that with Holiday at the helm the 76ers would likely have been an eighth seed candidate every year simply because of how good he was as a player and how good they projected he could be. It was the lack of additional star talent that would keep the 76ers in the hunt for the eighth seed and likely nothing more, which was not where Philadelphia wanted to be. That is why the team opted to trade Holiday to New Orleans on draft night last June. Basketball Insiders

Already without their starting center for the remainder of 2013-14, the New Orleans Pelicans announced Friday that their first-string point guard also won’t play again this season. Jrue Holiday, an All-Star in 2013 who was acquired in a draft-night trade with the Philadelphia 76ers, has undergone season-ending surgery to correct a right tibia stress fracture. Holiday has been sidelined since Jan. 8 with the injury, after playing in each of the team’s first 34 games. Brian Roberts has started in his place at point guard over the past 23 games. NBA.com

Q: When you took Earl Clark over Jrue Holiday at 14 was that partly because you thought you had Curry and didn’t want to draft two point guards? Steve Kerr: We liked Holiday a lot. We still had Nash, we had Goran Dragic who we loved and we had a potential thought we had a potential deal involving Curry. We didn’t know what was going to happen. And so you toss all that together, we were thinking, ‘Well, we could end up with four point guards. Do we take a guy and then just let it sort out later?’ That’s probably the right thing to do, just take the best player and sort it out later. San Jose Mercury-News

What do Jrue Holiday, a giraffe and 10-year-old Sandro Dussek have in common? They’ve all been dunked on by Dwight Howard. During the rain delay at Verizon Center on Saturday, Dwight Howard grabbed Sandro from his seat and had a little fun, going one on one with the tyke to kill some time. Sandro, son of telecom executive Steve Dussek, is a courtside fixture at Wizards games. He also has a pretty decent crossover. Washington Post
