Sixers add another Holiday

Sixers sign Jrue Holiday's brother, Justin, and release Jeremy Pargo

Sixers add another Holiday


The 76ers have signed 6-6, 180-pound forward Justin Holiday, brother of point guard Jrue Holiday. To make room on the roster the Sixers have waived guard Jeremy Pargo. 

In the NBA Development League this season, Holiday played 47 games for the Idaho Stampede, starting 42 and averaging 17.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.5 assists 2.4 steals and 1.17 blocks. He shot 42 percent from the floor and 41 percent from three. 

Holiday played well for the Sixers during the Orlando Summer league last July, showing an ability to take the ball to the basket and hit the mid-range jump shot. He’s a smart player who can be relied on to play various positions, though how much playing time he’ll get here in the final 9 games is a question.
