Jrue Holiday Signs Contract Extension with the 76ers

Jrue Holiday Will be a 76er for the Next Four YearsThe 76ers took a gigantic step forward to securing future success when agreeing to a 4-year extension with starting point guard Jrue Holiday. The extension is reportedly with a base salary of $41 million and if he reaches bonus incentives it could be as high as $46.5 million.

Holiday took over as starting point guard during the 2009-10 season and hasn’t missed a game since. He’s a career 43.9% field goal shooter to go along with being 37.5% from the 3 point line. He’s close to a 80% free throw shooter as well.

In the strike shortened 2011-12 season he had 103 steals so he should’ve eclipsed his career high total he had during the 2010-11 season of 120 by a far amount. His 11.9 career points per game average goes very nicely with 5 assists per game.

The 76ers are building a great foundation with Holiday arguably being one of the top 10 point guards in the game today and is a clear favorite of Head Coach Doug Collins. Holiday will earn $2,674,852 for the 2012-13 season before the extension takes effect next year.
