Celtics acquire All-Star G Jrue Holiday from Blazers

The Boston Celtics acquired All-Star guard Jrue Holiday from the Portland Trail Blazers in exchange for center Robert Williams, guard Malcolm Brogdon and multiple draft picks on Sunday.

The draft picks are a 2024 first-rounder from the Golden State Warriors and a 2029 unprotected first-rounder from Boston.

The new deal comes in the wake of Portland acquiring Holiday as part of the three-team deal that sent Damian Lillard to the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday.

Holiday, 33, is a two-time All-Star who helped lead the Bucks to their second ever NBA championship in 2021 following his acquisition from the New Orleans Pelicans. Over 14 seasons with the Philadelphia 76ers, New Orleans and Milwaukee, he has averaged 16.4 points and 6.5 assists.

He averaged 19.3 points, 7.4 assists and a career-best 5.1 rebounds in 67 games (65 starts) last season with the Bucks.

The veteran guard has a $36.8 million cap hit in the final guaranteed season of a four-year, $135 million contract with a player option for 2024-25. ESPN reported that Boston would like to extend his deal.

Williams, 25, has spent his entire career in Boston since being selected by the Celtics in the first round of the 2018 NBA Draft.

He averaged 8.0 points, 8.3 rebounds and 1.4 blocks during his fifth season in 2022-23. For his career, Williams has averages of 7.3 points, 6.9 rebounds and 1.7 blocks over 209 games (97 starts).

Brogdon, 30, played in 67 games last season and earned NBA Sixth Man of the Year honors after averaging 14.9 points, 4.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists. He had zero starts after previously starting 258 games of his 333 games over six seasons with Milwaukee (2016-19) and the Indiana Pacers (2019-22).

Brogdon, the Rookie of the Year with the Bucks in 2016-17, has career averages of 15.4 points, 4.6 assists and 4.2 rebounds.
