    Jrue Holiday is set to run the show for the Philadelphia 76ers for years to come. "We are very excited to keep a player of Jrue's caliber in Philadelphia and truly look forward to further building the 76ers legacy around his leadership." "Jrue is both an outstanding player and an important part of our future," Harris said. Holiday averaged 13.5 points and 4.5 assists a game last season. Holiday signed an extension with the Sixers just before the midnight deadline and hours after he led them to an 84-75 victory over the Denver Nuggets. The Los Angeles Clippers' Blake Griffin signed a max extension in July and was joined this week by Houston's James Harden , Chicago's Taj Gibson , Toronto's DeMar DeRozan , Golden State's Stephen Curry and Denver's Ty Lawson . "I'm going to keep putting in the work and pushing myself every day in order to bring a championship to the city and our fans."
