It has already been well documented that Jrue Holiday’s older brother, Justin Holiday, has been called up from the D-League’s Idaho Stampede to join the Sixers. With the team’s roster already set at the maximum of fifteen players, the front office was faced with the decision of who to let go.
The news has broke, and it is recently acquired guard, Jeremy Pargo. After signing two ten-day contracts, Pargo was signed for the remainder of the season by the Sixers. He played in 14 games with the team, averaging an unimpressive 4.9 points and 2.0 assists per game on 38% shooting from the field.
Pargo impressed Doug Collins early in his stint with Philadelphia, but recently has filled an insignificant role in the team’s rotation.
Justin Holiday landed in Philadelphia last night, and spent the night with younger brother, Jrue. Justin will wear the number 14 for the Sixers, and will primarily be used as a 3-point shooter and a perimeter defender.
The decision to waive Jeremy Pargo broke earlier this morning. Charles Jenkins was the other candidate most likely to be waived to make room for the elder Holiday.
