Looking at a revamped Sixers roster the upcoming season looks full of hope and accomplishment for a young squad.  Even though majority of the attention will be directed towards big man, Andrew Bynum, the attention will always be directed towards the field general, court director, the point guard. In this case the focus is on the 22-year-old Jrue Holiday. Holiday enters the final year of his rookie contract in 2012-13 and would turn out to be a team's dream if not re-signed and allowed to hit the FA market. The former UCLA Bruin, Holiday, would be a great snatch, in fact SI.com ranks him 13th among potential free agents for next summer. The California native is reportedly seeking a max contract extension from the 76ers. However given the slight drop in his stats last season, it will be a longer wait than anticipated for his contract to get offered. The Sixers would be smart to wait and see his progression through training camp and preseason before offering a contract, however if allowed to walk, Holiday might not be coming back.
