Justin Holiday started the season fairly hot, shooting around 40 percent from three-point range over the first two months. In December, though, that average has dropped significantly to the tone of just over 31 percent. Still, on the year, Holiday is putting up 12.5 points per game (well above his career average of 7.9) on 40 percent shooting overall.
Still, Holiday has proven to be a valuable defender for the Bulls this season. As their best perimeter defender, next to Kris Dunn, he would be a classic 3-and-D type of player a team could add. One of those teams looking at adding wing depth for a playoff run later in the season may benefit greatly from trading for Holiday.
His contract expires after this season, so for a team to take him on as a rental wouldn’t be too costly. Even if the Bulls were to take on a fellow expiring contract while getting something like a second-round pick to go with, that would be a huge win.
This team should be all about collecting assets going forward, and if they can get anything for an expiring contract, it is well-worth the deal.
