The Bucks acquired Holiday from the New Orleans Pelicans in the offseason in a four-team trade. He's appeared in 38 games with the Bucks this season, averaging 17.0 points, 5.4 assists, 4.6 rebounds and a career-best 1.8 steals on 50.9 percent shooting from the field and 39.0 percent from 3-point range.
At 32-17, the Bucks currently have the third-best record in the Eastern Conference, trailing the Philadelphia 76ers and Brooklyn Nets in first and second by two games each.
On the books for $26.1 million this season, Holiday had a $27.0 million player option in his contract for 2021-22. He would've been an unrestricted free agent following this season had he opted out of his player option.
