The Utah Jazz are expected to sign former 76er Justin Holiday to a contract, Yahoo! Sports is reporting.  The Sixers waived the 6-foot-6 guard in August.

Holiday appeared in nine games last season after being called up from the Idaho Stampede of the NBA Development League on April 1.

He came to Philadelphia in part because of his brother, Jrue Holiday, then the Sixers all-star point guard. Justin Holiday’s future with the team became doubtful once Jrue Holiday was traded to the New Orleans Pelicans during the June 27 NBA draft.
