Sixers to add Jrue's older brother
By Nick Borges
The Philadelphia 76ers have decided to look at a swingman for the final 17 days of the regular season and it's Jrue Holiday's older brother, Justin Holiday, reports The Philadelphia Inquirer and other media outlets.
According to the newspaper, the contract is a rest-of-season deal and it likely includes 2013-14, which won't be guaranteed. Holiday played with the Sixers' 2012 summer league team in Orlando and he will probably do the same this July.
Justin Holiday averaged 17.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.5 assists, and 2.4 steals with the D-League's Idaho Stamped this season.
The Sixers currently have a full 15-man roster, which means either Charles Jenkins or Jeremy Pargo will be released on Monday to open up a spot for Justin Holiday.
