Somebody tell Jrue Holiday he doesn’t play for the Philadelphia 76ers anymore.

The all-star guard was traded from the Sixers on draft night to the New Orleans Pelicans. Everyone knew this except Holiday apparently.

During the first home game in the history of the Pelicans, the newly named franchise hosted the Indiana Pacers and the organization decided to hand the microphone to its biggest offseason acquisition to welcome everyone to a new era.

Holiday slipped up, however, and welcomed everyone on behalf of himself and the Sixers.
