Trade grades: Who wins the Bulls-Grizzlies deal?

  • Justin Holiday has been traded by the Bulls to the Grizzlies

The move comes at a time when the Chicago Bulls are stocking up on young talent in the midst of a rebuild.

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

This season, he appeared in 38 games with 38 starts.

In addition to playing in Belgium and Hungary, Justin Holiday has spent 6 seasons in the National Basketball Association, producing career totals 7.9 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists a game for Philadelphia, Golden State, Atlanta, New York and Chicago - winning an National Basketball Association title with Golden State in 2015.

After the trade, let's take a look at three takeaways from the deal sending Holiday to Memphis for MarShon Brooks, Wayne Selden, a second round pick in 2019 and a second round pick in 2020.




Justin is a decent three-point shooter with a career number at 35%. The Grizzlies also gave up two future second round draft picks to the Bulls. The rookie has played well as of late, but he is less proven at the offensive end than Holiday is.

Selden will be available for Sunday's game against the Nets, Cody Westerlund of 670 The Score reports. A first-round pick would've been more ideal.

The Bulls are still shopping Jabari Parker and Robin Lopez ahead of the February 7 trade deadline.

"I wanna see him compete.less is more, just compete and.if he plays like 'Bulls' across his chest is important to him, I'll feel good about it". So will Selden, who actually shot a better percentage from 3-point range last season (40.2 percent) than Holiday ever has.

The one complication from Chicago's perspective was trading one player for two with a full roster, which means the Bulls had to waive backup guard Cameron Payne.
