Bulls trade Holiday to Grizzlies for Brooks, Selden

The Grizzlies are hoping Holiday - averaging 11.6 points - can provide a lift.

"I'm coming to a young team, building, coming to a historic program", Selden said after Friday's morning shootaround.

"I can do different things".

Holiday started in all 38 games for Chicago this season. The Tribune also points out that this trade could increase the role Chandler Hutchison plays on the team.

Grizzlies shooting guard Justin Holiday arrived following a trade with the Bulls last week. Brooks is averaging 6.6 points and Selden is scoring 5.4. "I can't try to fill shoes just because of the type of player that Justin was, I'm just gonna continue to be who.I am out there and do what I can to help the team win".

"He's a big body". During his National Basketball Association career, which began in the 2012-13 season, he has played for the Sixers, Warriors, Hawks, Bulls, Knicks, then returned to the Bulls, and now he's with Memphis.

I personally am thrilled with Holiday being he was already the 2nd target on my bargain bin list of guys who fit the Grizzlies interest behind my main preference who was Jonathan Simmons but Holiday comes at almost half the price of the Orlando Magic wing.

The Bulls will also have to waive one player, and point guard Cameron Payne is expected to be the one to go, according to reports.

Before this trade, the Bulls didn't have a second-round pick in 2019, having parted with it in a trade of Jose Calderon to the Lakers in July 2016 as part of a quest to clear cap space to sign Dwyane Wade. This trade restores that pick.
