The Brooklyn Nets and New Orleans Pelicans held talks before the 2020 deadline centered on Jrue Holiday.

Holiday is commonly viewed as a player who would fit perfectly with Kevin Durant and Jrue Holiday due to his ability to play off the ball and his ability on defense while matching Brooklyn's timeline of contention.

"That certainly is something that's been out there and I think it has been reported. If it hasn't been reported, I found out somewhere, I don't think it was from an executive, maybe it was, there was some discussions between the Nets and Pelicans in February."

Holiday can become a free agent in 2021.
