The Milwaukee Bucks give Jrue Holiday a huge extension that will keep him a Buck until the 2025 season. Milwaukee now has its three stars signed long-term. The deal is four years and worth up to 160 million dollars.

Holiday is the newest member of the team after being traded from New Orleans this past off-season. Holiday is averaging 17 points per game, and the Bucks currently sit at third in the Eastern Conference.

The organization is building a team to compete for years to come. Holiday completes the trio of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton.

Holiday is considered one of the most underrated and best two-way players in the game. He is usually always the person to take the challenge of guarding the opposing team’s best player.

The Bucks have their trio locked in for a long time. However, the Bucks’ front office’s biggest flaw in the past is that they weren’t surrounding Antetokounmpo with some other stars. Now the team has done that and hopes it gets them through the Eastern Conference.

Milwaukee has been the number one see the past two seasons and has failed to reach the finals both years. The Bucks give Jrue Holiday a huge extension to be that missing piece. Nevertheless, the Bucks will have their work cut out for them come playoff time.
