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.
