NBA Role: patient playmaker 

Jrue Holiday is a near All-Star level guard when fully healthy; New Orleans made an extremely high investment in Holiday back in 2013 (acquired on draft for the rights to Nerlens Noel (PHI) – the early returns have been mixed but Holiday appeared to settle re-captured his starting spot in 2017; skilled shot-maker & distributor who naturally creates good looks for himself and teammates – patiently picks spots to exploit, makes the right play coming off screens; drives the rim hard – likes flushing with his left, able to improvise if there’s traffic; innovative scorer – Holiday can get the job done via reverses, soft giant killers, 3s on the move, etc.; still developing a strong 1-2 punch with Anthony Davis – can Jrue also help integrate Boogie and form a Big 3?
