Jrue Holiday’s wife shares message detailing impact of sudden trade from Milwaukee: ‘We’re humans’

The NBA saw a flurry of moves during the offseason, culminating with the Portland Trail Blazers moving on from Damian Lillard last week. 

After 11 years in Portland, Lillard asked to be traded in July, with the Trail Blazers pulling off the three-team deal with the Milwaukee Bucks and the Phoenix Suns.

Portland acquired Jrue Holiday, Deandre Ayton, Toumani Camara, a 2029 unprotected Milwaukee first-round draft pick, and unprotected Milwaukee swap rights in 2028 and 2030, per ESPN. 

“So, yes, this is more than business,” Lauren’s message continued. “Not because we’re offended by it but, because we are people, we’re humans, we have relationships, dreams and a connection to where we play. 

“As I write this, we are grieving the loss of that while celebrating the hope and the joy of what’s ahead. The growth is in allowing ourselves to feel this pain now and turn it into power for how we move forward. That’s who we are and that’s who we always will be.”

Jrue Holiday will make his regular season Boston debut against the New York Knicks on Oct. 25.
