Jrue said he was a Milwaukee Buck for life...the day before being traded
In an interview with Jim Owczarski just 2 days ago, Jrue Holiday said that wanted to end his career as a Buck, but was traded for Damian Lillard yesterday.
Back in April, when the Milwaukee Bucks were eliminated from the playoffs, Jrue Holiday made it clear that he had no intention of retiring, but just days ago, he took it even further and said that he would like to be a Buck at the end of his career. In an interview with Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Holiday said that he had no desire to play for another team.
“Before I even won here I think I said I’m a Buck for life and I mean that like deep in my heart. I don’t want to play for any other team. I think we have a chance to continue to do great things as the Bucks team and organization so I want to be in Milwaukee.”
Unfortunately and with terrible timing, Holiday was traded away the next day as part of a three-team deal for the Bucks to acquire Damian Lillard from the Portland Trail Blazers, who are now in immediate trade talks with other teams. Some of his potential landing spots include the Miami Heat, Los Angeles Clippers, and Philadelphia 76ers.
