Bucks reportedly getting Jrue Holiday to play with Giannis Antetokounmpo

Point guard Jrue Holiday is being traded from New Orleans to Milwaukee, which is aiming to give two-time reigning NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo the improved roster that he seeks with the decision on his supermax contract extension looming, a person with knowledge of the situation said Tuesday.

“I’m happy for this, I’m happy for this award,” Antetokounmpo said at the time. “But I want more. … I’ve got to keep getting better. I want to be a champion.”
