The holiday weekend was a lucrative one for Milwaukee Bucks guard Jrue Holiday.
Holiday has agreed to a four-year contract extension worth $135 million with up to an additional $25 million available in bonuses, ESPN reported.
Holiday, who scored a season-high 33 points with 11 assists in Saturday’s win over the Sacramento Kings, was acquired by the Bucks in November from the New Orleans Pelicans in a four-team swap. The 12-year NBA veteran is averaging 17.0 points and 5.4 assists over 38 appearances (35 starts) this season for the Bucks.
The move secures Milwaukee’s core for the next several years. Giannis Antetokounmpo before the season signed a five-year, $228 million extension. In 2019, Khris Middleton signed a five-year, $178 million deal.
Holiday’s brothers Justin (a former Knick) and Aaron currently play for the Indiana Pacers.
