Holiday in, Turner out

76ers point guard Jrue Holiday will be a part of the all-star festivities later this month in Los Angeles. The Sixers have announced that Holiday has been voted onto the sophomore team as part of the T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam, a game that will be part of the NBA's all-star weekend Feb. 18-21.

The game pits a team of rookies against a team of second-year players. Sixers rookie Evan Turner, up for consideration for the rookie team, was not selected. The teams were selected by the league's assistant coaches.
