Found November 01, 2012 on Buzz On Broad:
Well the 76ers finally give Jrue what he's been looking for since the off-season, a new contract and a home on South Broad Street. Jrue Holiday and the Philadelphia 76ers have agreed upon a four-year, $41 million extension that will take him through the 2017 NBA regular season. With minor incentives added to the contract, Holiday's deal can potentially reach up to $46 million according to Aol.com's Sam Amick. As the Sixers continue to add centerpieces around their roster, there becomes a need for a floor general. Expect Jrue Holiday to play with a purpose for the rest of the regular season. On Wednesday night against the Nuggets he poured in 14 points and 11 assists in a double-double bearing effort.
