Bulls Trade Justin Holiday To Grizzlies

Bulls Trade Justin Holiday To Grizzlies

A three-team trade involving the Phoenix Suns, Memphis Grizzlies and Washington Wizards fell through Friday night, according to multiple outlets, over a odd miscommunication about which player named Brooks would be included.

The Chicago Bulls have traded forward Justin Holiday to the Memphis Grizzlies for guard MarShon Brooks and guard/forward Wayne Selden Jr., as well as the Grizzlies' 2019 and 2020 second-round picks.

ESPN also reports the Bulls plan to waive Cameron Payne to clear space for the players.

In mid-December, the Grizzlies thought they had a three-team deal in place that would have sent Brooks to the Suns.

Brooks is averaging 6.6 points, and Selden is putting up 5.4 points.

Brooks, meanwhile, is a 29-year-old veteran who has played the most games this season since his 2012-2013 campaign with the Brooklyn Nets. He is producing 11.6 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 38 games.

He was traded to the Bulls in 2016-17, but appeared in just 25 games last season after undergoing foot surgery.

Holiday is on an expiring contract and could be moved again before the February 7 trade deadline as long as his contract is not aggregated with another player.
