The 76ers Paid $3 Million To The Pelicans For Lying About Jrue Holiday’s Injury During Trade

The NBA forced the Sixers into paying $3 million to the Pelicans last year, for not fully disclosing Jrue Holiday’s injury history before he was traded in 2013.

Holiday was traded on draft night for the rights to Nerlens Noel, who was the sixth pick that year.

via Keith Pompey, Philadelphia Inquirer:

 

‘The sources said Holiday played with stress fractures in his lower right leg during his final season with the Sixers. However, the sources said, those injures weren’t fully disclosed to the Pelicans.

 

Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie declined to comment, but a Sixers team source disputed the allegation.’

 

Holiday has yet to play in a full season for the Pelicans; in 2013-2014, he played in just 34 games before undergoing season-ending surgery, and missed 41 games last season with a right leg injury.
