Bulls trade Justin Holiday to Grizzlies, report says

In addition, the Bulls are receiving two second round draft picks. Holiday, listed at 6-foot-6, 185 pounds, is averaging 11.6 points, 2.2 rebounds and 4.4 rebounds per game this season, though he's shooting just 38.3% FG, which isn't far off from his National Basketball Association career shooting of 39.1% FG. He is averaging 11.6 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.2 assists in a career-high 34.9 minutes per game, and he recently set a franchise record by sinking at least one 3-pointer in 43 straight games.

Acquired from Memphis in the Justin Holiday deal, Selden will go from a playoff-hopeful to a team with its eyes on the future. This season, hes averaging 5.4 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 14.2 minutes per game. Brooks is averaging 6.6 points and Selden is scoring 5.4.

Both Brooks and Selden were meant to be included in a three-team trade with the Phoenix Suns and Washington Wizards, which would've brought the Grizzlies back young forward Kelly Oubre. "Hopefully Wayne can help us shore down that wing defender position as well".

It's not a superstar return for the Bulls to be sure, but as long as Chicago plans on actually using those picks as something besides a foolhardy cash grab they'll help with the rebuild. We lost several cheap assets and managed to get a lot older on an already well-seasoned Memphis roster.

Cameron Payne has played in 31 games this season for the Bulls. So will Selden, who actually shot a better percentage from 3-point range last season (40.2 percent) than Holiday ever has.
