The Philadelphia 76ers are a team loaded with potential and young talent. Along with potential comes the team's willingness to invest in their young core, and Jrue Holiday is one of their key investments.
Holiday has shown flashes of being a true point guard who can facilitate the offense and has displayed ability to score form long range. There is no doubt this athletic point guard has potential. However, keep in mind that potential is only what could happen, not what will happen.
Regardless of whether or not we choose to recognize this when it comes to players we like, it is the way it is and we have to accept it. Anything can happen and no player is a promise until they have significantly proven themselves.
So yes, there is a chance that Holiday does not work out for the Sixers. If this becomes the case, then the Sixers will need to explore other possible options at that point.
Here are five players who would be serviceable if Holiday does not follow through before his contract expires.
