NBA Rumor: Jrue Holiday Extension

7 rumors in this storyline

Jrue Holiday's extension includes $25 million in bonuses

As Charania reported, the extension is worth $160 million in total, but that includes roughly $25 million in bonuses. According to a league source, $4.1 million of those bonuses are deemed likely, while $20.9 million of the bonuses are deemed unlikely. As covered in a breakdown of Holiday’s previous contract in our Bucks trade deadline primer, “unlikely bonuses” are negotiated incentives for hitting team goals or individual benchmarks the player did not achieve the previous season. When taking the non-guaranteed money off the total, the guaranteed salary in the contract counts for roughly $135 million through the 2024-25 season (with a player option in the fourth and final season).
