Jrue Holiday Traded To The Celtics

The Portland Trail Blazers have traded Jrue Holiday to the Boston Celtics for a solid package in return. This was expected when considering who Holiday is and what he offers a team as an experienced guard.

Per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Portland is expected to be keeping Robert Williams – most likely pairing him with Deandre Ayton (Damian Lillard trade) – but trading away Malcolm Brogdon.

The main reason behind that decision is due to their commitment to their younger, already existing core of guards.

For those that don’t know, the full trade details are this:

  • Blazers: Robert Williams, Malcolm Brogdon, 2024 first-rounder, 2029 first-rounder
  • Celtics: Jrue Holiday

Boston’s potentially new starting lineup will be Jrue Holiday, Derrick White, Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, and Kristaps Porzingis.
