Perhaps a bit overshadowed by some of the blockbuster moves that have characterized the offseason thus far is how the Milwaukee Bucks brought on two-time All-Defensive point guard Jrue Holiday to the squad.

Recently, the 30-year-old shared his first thoughts the moment he learned that he was on his way to Milwaukee.

According to Holiday, he was about to call it a night when he received the news:

“We were in bed,” Jrue Holiday said, via Preston Ellis of The Bird Writes. “We were in California. When we found out, we were really excited knowing that we were going to a team that has established themselves as one of the best.”
