With the New Orleans Pelicans rebuilding around Zion Williamson and presumably Brandon Ingram, there has been talk for months about the possibility of trading Jrue Holiday.
Both Holiday and the Pelicans have maintained that they would like him to remain with the team.
“I honestly feel like I’m built for this team, and the way that we’ve been able to come together has really been cool,” Holiday told CBS Sports. “I feel like I’m committed to this team and the players. I know for me personally, I try not to let my teammates down, so every time I come out here I feel like I try to put on my hard hat and my armor and go out there and fight for them.”
After a slow start to the season, the Pelicans are now within range of a playoff spot.
“It’s been fun, just being able to grow together,” Holiday said. “Going through tough times, like losing 13 straight and coming out of that and feeling like — obviously there’s an upside to that.”
