Holiday signs with Sixers

PHILADELPHIA -- The Philadelphia 76ers have signed their first-round draft pick, guard Jrue Holiday.

Holiday (6-foot-3, 180 pounds) was the 17th overall pick in the draft after leaving UCLA following his freshman season.

He averaged 8.5 points, 3.8 rebounds and 3.7 assists in his only season with the Bruins. Holiday should expect to see instant playing time as the Sixers are unlikely to re-sign starting point guard Andre Miller. Miller is an unrestricted free agent.
