Will the Boston Celtics sign Jrue Holiday to a contract extension?

Veteran Boston Celtics combo guard Jrue Holiday became eligible to sign a contract extension with the Celtics on this past Monday (April 1) that could start off with an annual salary for the UCLA alum as high as $51 million.

Speaking on a recent episode, the hosts of the CLNS Media “Garden Report” podcast, Bobby Manning, Josue Pavon and Jimmy Toscano, debated how likely it is that the Celtics can keep Holiday playing in Boston long term given the exigencies of the new collective bargaining agreement on the Celtics’ growing payroll.

They also got into whether or not Holiday would simply opt in to his player option on his current contract. Take a look at the clip embedded below to hear what they had to say!
