Chicago Bulls trade Justin Holiday to Memphis Grizzlies

Bulls Justin Holiday

The Chicago Bulls are likely going to waive point guard Cameron Payne after their trade with the Memphis Grizzlies is completed, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. The picks are in 2019 and 2020.

In 38 games for the Bulls this season, all starts, Holiday averaged a team-high 34.9 minutes per game while shooting 7.1 3-pointers per game, also leading the team.

The Memphis Grizzlies have acquired wing Justin Holiday from the Chicago Bulls. 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. He averaged 5.4 points, 1.4 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 0.3 steals, and 0.2 blocks per game. "Hopefully Wayne can help us shore down that wing defender position as well". That means the Bulls will enter this summer's draft with at least two picks.

Payne, 24, was drafted 14th overall by the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2015 and was traded to the Bulls last February.

Chicago reportedly doesn't plan to have Brooks report to the team, nor do they plan on waiving him immediately.

Chicago traded its 2019 second-round pick to the Lakers in July 2016 in the Jose Calderon deal that freed up salary-cap space to sign Dwyane Wade.

The Grizzlies remain $463,000 under the luxury tax with the $4.4 million addition of Holiday.

Grizzlies are known to make moves like this that barely if anything move the needle let alone serving as a long-term solution and we won't hear from them again sink or swim.
