The Jazz are still on the lookout for a third point guard.  The latest news has the Jazz bringing in Justin Holiday, brother of all-star point guard Jrue Holiday.  Justin averaged 4.7 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 15 minutes a game for 9 games with the 76ers last season.  He then got sent down to the developmental league with Idaho where he averaged 17.3 points, 5.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 47 games.

The Jazz currently have Jereal McNeal on a team option contract that they could uphold at the first of the season.  The Jazz drafted Trey Burke with the 9th pick in a trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves back in June.  The Jazz then signed John Lucas III as a free agent to mentor Trey and be a solid backup leader for the team this season.

Check out these highlights from Justin and tell me what you guys think.

    Interesting backup, but he is not a true PG, is ? He looks more like a combo guard to me, he seems tall and athletic but really slow (or quick as a farm tractor can be). ;)
