If Jrue Holiday ends up leaving the Milwaukee Bucks, there could be a domino effect in the Cream City that eventually results in the exile of two-time former NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo per Bobby Marks.
“I would be concerned based on what happens with Jrue Holiday,” Marks said (h/t Bleacher Report). “I think that’s going to be the x-factor and what I am going to keep an eye on. Holiday is extension eligible (on) February 22nd and potentially could be a free agent next year. What does Milwaukee do with him? If they lose him, they are in big trouble.”
Holiday demanding a trade at any point could lower his value to the point where the Celtics would get involved, and if Antetokounmpo would be collateral damage for such a move, the Bucks wouldn’t worry about boosting one of their long-time postseason rivals.
Better yet, Holiday is a more talented version of the defensive bulldog Smart. Holiday is by far the best possible acquisition at the PG spot for Boston unless the price for Lillard miraculously plummeted.
