Would you want your brother on your team? Sure, so long as he doesn’t tell mom everything going on during road trips. Just the PG version.

Sixers All-Star Jrue Holiday is going to get his brother on the team — the Sixers have signed Justin Holiday for the rest of this season. Justin, like his brother, played his college ball in the Pac-12 — he had four seasons at Washington but went undrafted. This season the 6’6” swingman has averaged 17 points and 5.2 rebounds a game for the Idaho Stampede.

Obviously, don’t expect Justin to get a lot of court time, but he is getting a shot and that is key.

To make way for another Holiday, the Sixers cut loose Jeremy Pargo.

    The Sixers cut Jeremy Pargo now wouldnt it be ironic if my lowly Bobcats picked him up to play with his brother Jannero. Just sayin..it would make the story interesting. Hahaha

    Still waiting for Kwame Brown to get cut considering he hasn’t seen a minute of action in 3 months.
