This is a tremendous trade for New Orleans as they shipped out a 1st rounder, Nerlens Noel for Jrue Holiday and a 2nd rounder in this years draft.

If New Orleans can remain healthy, Holiday, Eric Gordon, Robin Lopez and Anthony Davis ( not to mention Ryan Anderson ) should be a solid group that will surely make some noise next year.

As of now the Pelicans rank #1 on my draft night board with the T-Wolves 2nd after moving Trey Burke for 2 extra first rounders.

Pistons already biggest losers taking yet another guard.

Also thinking about this, the 76ers must love trading for injured big men. Noel is targeting a November return. That could be late November, even December before they see any sort of action from this guy. I wouldn't be surprised if he sat out longer than that. LOL

Terrible move by the Hornets. Jrue Holiday isn't very good. He is a terrible offensive PG who is overrated defensively. He gambles a lot and metrics actually show he is an average defender at best(due to gambling probably). He is a marginal upgrade over the overrated Vasquez. Really dumb but not surprised considering how inept their franchise is. They drafted Austin Rivers and never surrounded CP3 with much talent after all.

Jrue Holiday is an All-star PG.....in the East. In the West he's barely top 7

That trade was so surprising. The draft analysts nearly died when they heard the news.

This probably belongs in the rant thread, but it's about Holiday.........sooooooooo...

DAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMIIIIIIITTTTT!!!!!!! HATE!! HATE!! HATE!! HATE!! HATE!! HATE!! HATE!! I thought Jrue Holiday was an untouchable player for the Sixers in terms of trade!! Now, I'm pissed off. Even though we don't have the pieces to get him...........this trade really grinds my gears...........just seeing him get dealt REALLY pisses me off to no end...

I know we have CP3 at PG, and there was no way on God's Green Earth that we could've gotten all of the players that I wanted on the same team.........but one of the players I wished was a Clipper wasn't as unavailable as I thought. I hate the Sixers, and I hate the Pelicans.

Which is why he needs to play with a wing player that handles the ball, can run the offense from the 2, and doesn't need to score to be effective........like James Harden.
