Memphis Grizzlies: Breaking Down The Justin Holiday Trade

Memphis Grizzlies: Breaking Down The Justin Holiday Trade

Holiday is now on the backend of a two-year deal with the Bulls, and it expires at the season's end. The other, more valuable Brooks (Dillon) has been hit or miss since returning from injury, scoring 33 points on 11-of-21 shooting in his two best games but totaling 7 points on 3-of-15 in the two others.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Chicago Bulls have traded forward Justin Holiday to the Memphis Grizzlies in exchange for guard MarShon Brooks, forward Wayne Selden, and two future second-round picks.

Selden, who played at Kansas for three seasons (2013-16), is averaging 5.4 points on 40.4-percent shooting in his third National Basketball Association season, playing a career-low 14.2 minutes per game.

The Italian gaffer, however, admitted that the Blues played against a unsafe opponent. After the game, Sarri said, as quoted by Birmingham Live : "The problem is his ankle".

This season, Selden made 32 appearances with the Grizzlies. Holiday has shined at times in his role with the Bulls by proving he is capable of spacing the floor with three-point shooting and providing defense at the other end. I can shoot it, I can create off the dribble, try to be the best defender I can be, give all my effort on the defensive end and just try to keep getting better. He averaged 5.4 points, 1.4 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 0.3 steals, and 0.2 blocks per game. "I'm athletic. I feel I can do different things on the court to help this team".

"Justin was my guy.he's helped me alot through learning, y'know playing similar positions so, it's tough to see that but we all gotta be ready and it's the next man up type of deal".

According to Shams Charania, the Bulls neither plan on having Brooks report to the team or to waive him. This trade restores that pick.
