The New Orleans Pelicans are trading point guard Jrue Holiday to the Milwaukee Bucks for guard Eric Bledsoe, George Hill, and major draft compensation.

Fantasy Impact

This is an amazing trade for the Bucks. Jrue Holiday now gets to play with Giannis Antetokounmpo which is great for his fantasy value. Expect assists to increase a bit and his shooting efficiency to improve. Holiday has been a top fantasy point guard for a while and that doesn’t change now. In New Orleans, Eric Bledsoe and George Hill will both likely come off the bench behind Lonzo Ball which caps their fantasy ceilings.
