04:40 PM ET 04.01 | The Philadelphia 76ers have signed shooting guard Justin Holiday, brother of All-Star point guard Jrue Holiday, after waiving Jannero Pargo to free up a roster spot, the team announced Monday. Justin Holiday, 23, stands 6'6'' and played his college ball at Washington. This season, he played 47 games with the D-League's Idaho Stampede, averaging 17.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 2.4 steals in 34.7 minutes per game. With the Sixers effectively in evaluation mode with a postseason spot long out of reach, Justin Holiday could an intriguing pick-up going into next season, though it's unclear how his new contract is structured. Since Feb. 25, he's been especially good with Idaho, averaging 24.2 points per game while hitting 45 percent of his shots from three-point range.

I wonder if he's anywhere near as good as his teammate brother.

They play in the city of brotherly love so it is fitting.

I doubt that....but he has good length and can shoot the rock (41% from 3-point and 81% FT).

Those were his D-league stats.
