Jrue Holiday will reportedly be traded to the Bucks in exchange for Eric Bledsoe, George Hill and three future first-round picks.
That's an impressive haul for the Pelicans, who get two future draft-pick swaps in addition to the trifecta of first-rounders. Milwaukee is going all-in for a championship in the hopes of compelling Giannis Antetokounmpo to sign an extension, and installing Holiday at PG makes them even more fearsome defensively. That's saying something, since they already had the best Defensive Rating in the league last year. Bledsoe's usage rate of 24.1% last year was comparable to Holiday's own 24.6% with the Pelicans, so Jrue's fantasy value shouldn't suffer in Milwaukee. If anything, he may benefit from easier buckets and assists with defenses keyed into the Bucks' twice-reigning MVP. Nov 16 11:39 pm (EST)
