Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune reported Friday that Holiday was “giving consideration” to signing with the Pacers—who have an opening in their backcourt after Jeff Teague reportedly agreed to terms on a three-year, $57 million deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
News of Holiday’s interest in the Pacers comes as something of a surprise since ESPN.com’s Marc Stein previously reported there was “growing resignation” among teams in the market for a point guard that Holiday would return to the New Orleans Pelicans on a “rich five-year deal.”
However, Holiday appears to be expanding his search and is in line to take a meeting with the New York Knicks if he doesn’t agree to a deal in short order, per ESPN.com’s Ian Begley.
An eight-year veteran, Holiday continued to establish himself as one of the league’s better two-way guards throughout the 2016-17 campaign.
Based on those numbers and his status as one of the league’s more underrated defensive floor generals, Holiday should garner a monster financial commitment—whether it’s from the Pacers, Pelicans or even the Knicks.
