JRUE HOLIDAY EXTENDS CONTRACT WITH 76ERS
Mon, 05 Nov 2012 06:19 PM EST

Jrue Holiday is set to run the show for the Sixers for several years to come.

Holiday signed an extension with the Sixers just before the midnight deadline and hours after he led them to an 84-75 victory over the Denver Nuggets.

Someone familiar with the deal claimed that the extension was for 4 years and worth at least $41 million. The individual spoke on condition of anonymity as it is team policy not to divulge contract terms. The Sixers had until midnight to strike a deal or risk Holiday turning into a restricted free agent at the end of the season.

He had 14 points and 11 assists in the season opener. Holiday, who was the 17th overall pick in the 2009 draft, averaged 11.7 points and 5 assists over his first 3 seasons.

”I’m ecstatic to resume playing in Philadelphia,” Holiday expounded. ”I’m going to keep putting in the work and pushing myself each day so as to bring a championship to the city and our fans.”

Sixers owner Josh Harris was happy to keep his star point guard.

”Jrue is both an outstanding player and a vital part of our future,” Harris said. ”We are very excited to keep a player of Jrue’s caliber in Philadelphia and truly look forward to further building the 76ers legacy around his leadership.”

Coach Doug Collins has heaped Holiday with praise and believes he can become one of the top-5 point guards in the NBA. The 76ers have let Holiday, Evan Turner and former Sixer Andre Iguodala take turns as the main ballhandler during the past 3 seasons, stunting Holiday’s growth, even as he’s shown flashes of super stardom. Collins decided the 1st day of training camp that this was time to trust Holiday absolutely with letting him be the shots at point, and uses him and injured center Andrew Bynum as the building blocks for a run toward Philadelphia’s 1st championship since 1983.

Holiday declared after the game he was optimistic he would remain a Sixer for the long run.

”Whatever I get, I get,” Holiday related. ”If I get what I want, thank you.”

He had plenty of reasons to be thankful Thursday and beyond.

Philadelphia got a deal in Holiday; it struck contractual gold. Baseball scores

At 22 years old, he is in just his fourth NBA season and has already proven to have superstar-level potency.

He’s someone that can both run the offense and play off the ball, somebody fast and intelligent enough to play suffocating perimeter defense and someone talented enough to lead both statistically and psychologically – a playoff-worthy cause.

Holiday is a little more than a complementary piece – though he would pair nicely with Bynum. He’s someone the team can continue to build around if Bynum does not pan out.

He’s someone who serves as a well of certainty in an uncertain time.
