Sixers sign Justin Holiday for season. Yes, Jrue’s brother.


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.
