NBA rumors: Jrue Holiday to get max extension next?

Now, entering the final year of his contract, the executives polled agree that Holiday has all the leverage going into any extension negotiations this season and heading into the offseason if he becomes a free agent. “Jrue will get a max extension now,” as one of the Eastern Conference executives told HoopsHype. “Other teams could also be more aggressive going after Harden now.”

According to Windhorst, when the Pelicans were discussing trades for Jrue Holiday, gauging Holiday’s interest in a longer-team stay with potential trade partners was part of that process. While nothing has been agreed to yet, Windhorst gets the sense that Holiday is open to an extension (or eventually re-signing in free agency) with the Bucks.
Bobby Marks: Jrue Holiday has two years left- $25.9M and $26.8M. The second year is a player option. If the trade occurs on Tuesday, Holiday would be eligible to sign a four-year $135M (starting in 2021-22) extension on Feb. 13.
