UCLA junior guard Aaron Holiday has hired agent Charles Briscoe, a partner of Premier Sports Council, forgoing the final year of his eligibility, Briscoe told Yahoo Sports. Holiday announced his plans to declare for the draft last month. Holiday led the Bruins to an NCAA tournament berth this season, averaging 20.3 points, 5.8 assists and 3.7 rebounds per game.
Aaron Holiday: After much thought and consideration, my family and I feel it is in my best interest to declare for the 2018 NBA draft. I want to thank God for giving me the ability to play this sport. I also want to thank my family, my coaches , UCLA, and the fans for always supporting me.
UCLA's Aaron Holiday and Thomas Welsh are entering their names into the NBA draft, but they are not hiring an agent, sources told ESPN. Holiday, a 6-foot-1 sophomore, saw a slightly diminished role this season after the arrival of Lonzo Ball. Holiday was a key factor off the bench for the Bruins, averaging 12.3 points and 4.4 assists while shooting 41.1 percent from 3-point range. With Ball, Bryce Alford and Isaac Hamilton all leaving, Holiday could be the go-to-guy for UCLA next season.
