Former All-Star Jrue Holiday will be a long-time member of the Milwaukee Bucks as he signed a four-year contract extension that can reach up to $160 million.

Holiday acquired by the Bucks in the offseason to strengthen its case for a championship shot has been averaging 17.0 points, 5.4 assists, 4.6 rebounds, and 1.82 steals this season.

His efficient rate is high, shooting a career-high 50.9% from the field to go with 39.0% from the three-point arc and 81.6% from the free-throw line.

The 17th overall pick in the 2009 NBA draft has been widely known as a two-way player and one of the most underrated NBA players.

Spending most of his career with the New Orleans Pelicans, Holiday found himself in need of a better team rather than being a mentor for the squad as he vies for an NBA championship across his name.

The extension also means that the Bucks trio, back-to-back MVP GiannisAntetokounmpo and all-star Khris Middleton will be in tack and responsible for bringing a championship to the city.

It was also a good move for the Bucks, even though Holiday still has an active contract. The team knows that Holiday will be surrounded by suitors come the end of his contract.
