Bucks, Holiday agree to deal worth up to $160M

Milwaukee Bucks guard Jrue Holiday has agreed to a four-year, $135 million extension that includes bonuses that could take the deal to $160 million, agent Jason Glushon told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The deal includes a player option, according to Glushon.

Holiday joined the Bucks in a four-team trade in November, providing shooting and defense to a Milwaukee team building around reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo. In his first season with the Bucks, Holiday is averaging 17.0 points and 5.4 assists per game.

The agreement comes after Holiday scored a season-high 33 points to go with 11 assists and seven rebounds during Saturday’s 129-128 win over the Sacramento Kings.

Holiday, 30, spent seven seasons with the New Orleans Pelicans, who acquired him in a draft-night deal from the Philadelphia 76ers in 2013, following his lone All-Star season. He is averaging 15.9 points and 6.3 assists per game in his career.
