Jrue Holiday was 'ecstatic' when he was traded to the Bucks

After seven seasons in New Orleans, Holiday was finally ready for a change of scenery and desperately wanted to contend for a title. A source with knowledge of his situation said Pelicans executive vice president of basketball operations Dave Griffin was given a list of preferred destinations that included more than five teams, including the Bucks, and Holiday was ecstatic when the word came that he was Milwaukee bound. Five months later, Holiday and the Bucks would come to terms on a four-year, $160 million extension that showed yet again that the Bucks’ ownership group, headed by Marc Lasry and Wes Edens, was willing to cut the kinds of enormous checks necessary to up their odds of winning it all.
