The agent for Philadelphia 76ers point guard Jrue Holiday said the two sides would likely not come to an agreement on a contract extension ahead of Wednesday's deadline, according to Sam Amick of USA Today Sports:

"We've had conversations, but I don't feel like any progress has been made," Tony Dutt told USA Today Sports on Monday of the talks with the Sixers. "We haven't talked in a while."

Holiday continues to seek a max deal despite averaging 13.7 points, 5.6 assists, 3.7 rebounds, and 1.5 steals in his two seasons as a starter. The deadline for signing players from the 2009 draft class is Wednesday at 5 p.m. If Holiday doesn't reach a deal, he will become a restricted free agent in July 2013 and the Sixers would have three days to match any competing offers.

Holiday will go head-to-head with Ty Lawson of the Denver Nuggets as the two teams open up their season in Philadelphia on Wednesday evening. Lawson, who is from the same '09 draft class as Holiday, is also under deadline for a contract extension with his team.
