More Rumors in this Storyline
Scott Agness: Justin Holiday will be eligible to play in Sacramento. There is not a vaccine mandate for residents like there is in San Francisco or New York City. Holiday is unvaccinated and plans to remain that way.
Adrian Wojnarowski: The Pacers are trading Domas Sabonis, Jeremy Lamb and Justin Holiday to Sacramento for Tyrese Hailburton, Buddy Hield and Tristan Thompson, sources tell ESPN.
Adrian Wojnarowski: The Pacers are including a 2027 second-round pick in the deal to the Kings, sources tell ESPN.
Bobby Marks: Indiana will create a $6M TE in the deal Buddy Hield: $23.1M, $21.2M and $19.3M Tyrese Haliburton: $4M, $4.2M and $5.8M Tristan Thompson: $9.7M
One league source on a top-10 team guessed that Holiday might get vaccinated if he had a chance to join a contender. But a source close to Holiday acknowledged that vaccination status could be an impediment.
James Boyd: More #Pacers trade talk info from @MikeAScotto. One thing to keep in mind with Justin Holiday is that he’s unvaccinated and plans to remain unvaccinated, so any team that plays in a city with a vaccine mandate would most likely not make a move for him.
After missing the Pacers’ past five games due to the NBA’s COVID-19 health and safety protocols, Justin Holiday — who said he is and will remain unvaccinated — returned to practice Sunday. Holiday entered the protocols Nov. 30. Per league rules, a player or coach with the virus must isolate for a minimum of 10 days or register two negative PCR tests at least 24 hours apart to come back sooner. Holiday spent the full time in isolation.
When asked if he plans to get vaccinated in the future, the nine-year NBA veteran — whose younger brother, Bucks guard Jrue Holiday, is vaccinated and was a part of an NBA COVID-19 PSA — said he doesn’t. “Right now I don’t,” Holiday said. “I mean, yeah, right now I don’t. I don’t see how me getting (COVID-19) changes that.”
Indiana also has other rotation guys that are available. Pacers swingmen Justin Holiday and Jeremy Lamb are also available on the trade market, league sources told HoopsHype. According to rival executives, Indiana is seeking two second-round picks for Holiday. In three seasons with the Pacers, Holiday is shooting just under 39 percent from three-point range.
Caris LeVert has known suitors in Cleveland and New York, but so far Indiana has requested multiple first-round picks for the 27-year-old guard as well, sources said. The Pacers have also placed calls assessing the value of Justin Holiday, Jeremy Lamb and Torrey Craig.
JaMychal Green, Justin Holiday, and Garrett Temple are all available, per league sources. The Grizz would surely like to recoup at least one of the second-rounders they flipped for Holiday.
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. In a related move, the Bulls also waived guard Cameron Payne.
Albert Nahmad: Grizzlies will acquire Justin Holiday from Bulls in exchange for MarShon Brooks, Wayne Selden, and their 2nd-round picks in 2019 and 2020 (per @Adrian Wojnarowski). Bulls, who’ll need to waive a player, will create a $2.7M trade exception. Grizzlies will move to $463K below luxury tax line.
Shams Charania: The Bulls are trading Justin Holiday to Memphis for draft picks, league sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @WatchStadium.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Memphis is trading Marshon Brooks and Wayne Selden and two second-round picks to Chicago for Justin Holiday, league sources tell ESPN.
Several teams seeking a shooting and defending wing player have inquired about Justin Holiday, who has served as a veteran leader for Chicago.
Holiday and Robin Lopez are available all day, every day for the right asset. So a trade wouldn’t be a result of the season going south. As mentioned above, if noncompetitive losses start piling up, attention will shift to Hoiberg. Given that expectations were low even before the widespread injuries to critical players, none of the above is a possibility as well. The only one I’d rule out is change in management. Team President Michael Reinsdorf praised management — and Hoiberg — in an interview on the eve of camp.
Sources told SN that one player who has drawn significant interest has been wing Justin Holiday, currently averaging a career-high 13.4 points and making 37.7 percent of his 3s. Holiday is on a reasonable contract — he is owed $4.4 million next season — and his ability to shoot and defend the perimeter has made him a potential target for playoff teams like Boston, Minnesota and Oklahoma City.
Vincent Goodwill: Gar Forman: “I wouldn’t call it a rebuild. I would call it a retool.”
New York Knickerbockers President Phil Jackson announced today that the team has acquired three-time NBA All-Star and 2011 NBA Most Valuable Player Derrick Rose from the Chicago Bulls. As part of the deal, the Knicks have also acquired guard Justin Holiday and a 2017 second-round draft selection in exchange for guards Jose Calderon and Jerian Grant and center Robin Lopez.
“As we said at the end of last season, we are committed to exploring every option to improve this team,” said Forman. “This trade is a significant step in that process. Our goal is to get younger and more athletic, and this trade moves us in that direction and allows us to start changing the structure of our team. In Robin Lopez, we are acquiring a starting center who is a good defender, good rebounder, and brings a toughness to our team. Jose Calderon is a proven veteran who can run an offense and knock down threes. Jerian Grant was high on our draft board last year as someone with a great skill set and positional size. All three players are great teammates and have tremendous work ethic, and we are excited to welcome them to the Chicago Bulls organization.”
Adrian Wojnarowski: Players involved in the Rose deal have been informed, sources tell @TheVertical.
Chris Vivlamore: Final details: Hawks get Kirk Hinrich. Jazz get Shelvin Mack. Bulls get Justin Holiday and Jazz 2018 second round pick at belonged to Nuggets.
