Jrue Holiday

  1. New Orleans Pelicans officially unveil new uniforms

    Aug 1, 2013, 2:40 PM EDT

    PelicansTeamStore.com

    The New Orleans Pelicans officially unveiled their uniforms for the upcoming season, and the simple design is underwhelming, at best. No sign of the Pelicans logo, and no bright or interesting color scheme. Just the city’s name on the front of both the home and away jerseys, with some gold trim making its way down…

  2. Should Sixers trade Evan Turner? Do they wait hoping his value goes up?

    Jul 30, 2013, 2:31 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Boston Celtics

    When Jrue Holiday was traded, it felt like a trade countdown clock started over Evan Turner’s head — he was the logical next to go. Spencer Hawes and Thaddeus Young are on that list, too, but Turner has real value around the league. Plus, Sixers GM Sam Hinkie has said he’s not done shaking up…

  3. It took Jrue Holiday five minutes to get over being traded

    Jul 30, 2013, 1:59 PM EDT

    Jrue Holiday

    A couple years ago the Philadelphia 76ers looked like an up-and-coming team — Doug Collins had them playing good defense, they had Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner to go with Andre Iguodala. There was some reason for hope… then the gamble on Andrew Bynum went bad. Very bad. Now the Sixers are rebuilding and Holiday…

  4. Sixers new GM not done shaking up roster, will be active with trades

    Jul 30, 2013, 10:31 AM EDT

    Sam Hinkie

    When the Sixers moved Jrue Holiday on draft night, the plan of new GM Sam Hinkie became clear — they were going to get worse to get better. Philly is not going to be good this year, but they will have two first round draft picks (theirs and New Orleans, so long as that isn’t…

  5. NBA post free agency Power Rankings: Who is closing in on Miami?

    Jul 29, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul and Griffin wait for play to resume as the Clippers trail the San Antonio Spurs during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    This summer saw Dwight Howard find a new home, the Clippers and Pacers add depth, and a few other teams making bold moves to get better (or, in some cases, worse intentionally). So how did all this impact the PBT Power Rankings? Glad you asked. Here is where things stand this summer (the number in…

  6. New Sixers CEO apologizes for Andrew Bynum debacle, preaches patience

    Jul 26, 2013, 1:02 PM EDT

    Scott O'Neil

    It was a gamble, but I still contend at the time the Philadelphia 76ers made a good one — they had a chance to get Andrew Bynum fresh off a season where he played in 60 of 66 games (it was the lockout year), averaged 18.7 points and 11.8 rebounds a game, and shot 55.8…

  7. Kyrie Irving, Anthony Davis shine in USA Basketball showcase

    Jul 26, 2013, 1:08 AM EDT

    USA Basketball Men's National Team Blue And White Game

    LAS VEGAS – The White team beat the Blue team 128-106 in the USA Basketball intra-squad showcase that put a bow on a four-day mini-camp held in Las Vegas this week, but the event was about anything but this game’s final score. The powers that be were looking for mostly intangibles from players in terms…

  8. New Pelican Jrue Holiday finds name funny; thinks team can be competitive

    Jul 25, 2013, 10:16 AM EDT

    Toney Douglas, Jrue Holiday

    In New Orleans, the switch of the team name from Hornets to Pelicans largely went over well — it’s something local, not something imported and forced on them. Outside New Orleans, there are a lot of people shaking their heads. Until recently, Jrue Holiday was outside New Orleans. He was traded from the Philadelphia 76ers…

  9. Rosters set for Thursday’s USA Basketball intra-squad showcase

    Jul 25, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Damian Lillard, Harrison Barnes

    LAS VEGAS — USA Basketball will wrap up its four-day mini-camp on Thursday with an intra-squad showcase that will be played in front of fans at the Thomas and Mack Center on the campus of UNLV, and televised nationally on NBA TV. The rosters have been set for what is essentially an All-Star game where the…

  10. 76ers replace risk-taking front office with risk-taking front office

    Jul 23, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Sam Hinkie

    Confession: I liked the Andrew Bynum trade for the 76ers. They were a middling team capable of making the playoffs but without the proven ability to win a series unless the opponent’s top player was injured. Their roster had limited flexibility, and two starters, Elton Brand and Andre Iguodala, were aging. The 76ers didn’t necessarily…

  11. Tyreke Evans says he’d have no problem coming off the bench for the Pelicans

    Jul 20, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans

    Tyreke Evans has started all but 10 of the 257 games he’s appeared in through his first four NBA seasons. Given the horrific state of affairs in Sacramento during Evans’ time there — a period where the team never won more than 28 regular season games — there weren’t a lot of other options. And…

  12. Brian Roberts hopes Summer League helped his chances of staying in New Orleans next season

    Jul 20, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Knicks Pelicans Basketball

    Brian Roberts was surprisingly productive for the Pelicans last year (when they were still called the Hornets), especially in the latter part of the season. He was a capable scorer from the guard position, and was regularly the one name that would jump out at you when combing through the morning’s box scores late in…

  13. Charles Barkley thinks it’s “silly” Sixers don’t have a coach yet

    Jul 20, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Tahoe Celebrity Golf

    New Philadelphia GM Sam Hinkie is taking his time picking a coach for the Sixers. There was not one in place for the draft, not one for Summer League. He’s interviewing a handful of candidates, but there is no rush. Sixers’ legend Charles Barkley doesn’t get it. At all. Barkley doesn’t mince words and didn’t…

  14. Sprained ankle to keep Taj Gibson out of Team USA mini-camp

    Jul 19, 2013, 3:53 PM EDT

    Taj Gibson

    Chicago’s Taj Gibson’s blend of size and athleticism makes him an interesting fit for what Team USA likes to do — press on defense, create turnovers then get out and run. Play to your strengths, and with the USA that is the level and depth of athleticism. But a sprained ankle is going to keep…

  15. In a crowded Pelicans backcourt, Austin Rivers wants to show he belongs

    Jul 18, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Austin Rivers Summer League

    LAS VEGAS — Austin Rivers’ poor start to last season got a lot of attention — he was genuinely awful. Historically awful. For the season he ended with a PER of 5.9, the kind of number that normally would suggest his next paycheck will come from Europe. It’s the worst PER ever for a rookie…

  16. Is Eric Gordon healthy, fully invested with Pelicans? He told his coach he’s healthy at least.

    Jul 17, 2013, 10:14 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets' Gordon reacts after a call by officials while his team took on the Miami Heat during their NBA basketball game in New Orleans

    Eric Gordon’s last couple seasons in New Orleans haven’t been pretty. Injuries leading to not playing, the request to leave town and body language to suggest he was not happy that he had to stay. But has he turned a corner now that the Pelicans have Jrue Holiday and Tyreke Evans to go with Anthony…

  17. 76ers receive permission to interview Bulls assistants Ed Pinckney and Adrian Griffin

    Jul 16, 2013, 9:56 PM EDT

    ed-pinckney

    The 76ers traded their lone All-Star, Jrue Holiday, for a rookie and a draft pick. They let their player with the most potential, Andrew Bynum, leave in free agency. All signs say they’re not really interested in winning next season. It’s a sound plan – bottoming out to get better – but it’s a also…

  18. Kawhi Leonard to skip USA Basketball mini-camp; George Hill, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist added to the roster

    Jul 16, 2013, 12:32 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v San Antonio Spurs - Game Three

    USA Basketball will hold a four-day mini-camp in Las Vegas following the conclusion of Summer League beginning on July 22, and while the roster was originally set to include Kawhi Leonard, that will no longer be the case. Leonard will miss the mini-camp “while rehabbing from a long season,” USA Basketball announced on Tuesday via…

  19. Jrue Holiday-Nerlens Noel trade now official

    Jul 13, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Toney Douglas, Jrue Holiday

    Congratulations, Jrue Holiday. Fresh off marrying U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team member Lauren Cheney (now Lauren Holiday) – and the subsequent honeymoon that delayed his trade from becoming official – Jrue Holiday is now a husband and Pelican. The trade, which sends Nerlens Noel and a future first-round pick to the 76ers, hinged on Holiday…

  20. Austin Rivers shines in Summer League opener for the Pelicans

    Jul 12, 2013, 8:23 PM EDT

    Knicks Pelicans Basketball

    LAS VEGAS — Austin Rivers hasn’t played in an NBA basketball game since March 4, after suffering a broken hand injury that ended his season. You wouldn’t have known it in his first game with the Pelicans at the Las Vegas Summer League opener on Friday, as Rivers finished with 24 points, seven rebounds, and…

  22. Interesting draft note: If Bennett or Oladipo had fallen to No. 6, same Sixers/Pelican trade would have gone down

    Jul 9, 2013, 5:14 PM EDT

    2013 NBA Draft

    Just days before the 2013 NBA Draft Nerlens Noel was still the presumptive No. 1 pick and Anthony Bennett was thought to be the guy falling down draft boards. It was then that the brain trusts of Philadelphia and New Orleans came up with a trade that surprised a lot of people on draft night.…

  23. Tyreke Evans looking for stable role in New Orleans

    Jul 9, 2013, 12:06 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans

    A few things made the last few seasons in Sacramento tough for Tyreke Evans. First, there were a series of injuries that slowed him down. There was a coaching change and just a general instability with the franchise as the Maloof era sputtered to its inevitable end. Then there was how Evans had different things…

  24. Eric Gordon thinks there’s ‘a good to great chance’ he’ll be back with the Pelicans

    Jul 4, 2013, 10:30 PM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    The NBA franchise in New Orleans now known as the Pelicans has been plenty busy this offseason, but all of their moves have involved relatively big-name guards who have the ability to score. On the surface, that seems like an odd choice. Eric Gordon is in that position for the Pelicans at a salary of…

  25. Kings, Pelicans, Blazers agree to three-way deal involving Tyreke Evans, Robin Lopez, Greivis Vasquez

    Jul 4, 2013, 5:49 PM EDT

    Greivis Vasquez, Jae Crowder, Vince Carter

    UPDATE 5:31 p.m.: The deal has been agreed upon, and now involves a third team in the Portland Trail Blazers. Tyreke Evans goes to the Pelicans, Greivis Vasquez heads to Sacramento, and Robin Lopez ends up in Portland. Marc Stein of ESPN.com reports that Terrel Harris will also head to the Blazers, who will send…
