Selden, 24, has averages of 5.4 points, 1.1 assists and 1.4 rebounds in 32 games.

In addition to playing in Belgium and Hungary, Justin Holiday has spent 6 seasons in the National Basketball Association, producing career totals 7.9 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists a game for Philadelphia, Golden State, Atlanta, New York and Chicago - winning an National Basketball Association title with Golden State in 2015. This season, hes averaging 5.4 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 14.2 minutes per game.

The Grizzlies are hoping Holiday - averaging 11.6 points - can provide a lift. Holiday has shined at times in his role with the Bulls by proving he is capable of spacing the floor with three-point shooting and providing defense at the other end.

"Justin was my guy.he's helped me alot through learning, y'know playing similar positions so, it's tough to see that but we all gotta be ready and it's the next man up type of deal".

The Grizzlies remain below the luxury tax with Holiday's acquisition and will inherit his early bird rights, according to ESPN's Bobby Marks. That means the Bulls will enter this summer's draft with at least two picks.

From the Bulls' standpoint, this deal was somewhat more straightforward. The question was mostly who could offer the best second-round picks in return. We lost several cheap assets and managed to get a lot older on an already well-seasoned Memphis roster.

The Bulls also waived guard Cameron Payne, who was in his third season in Chicago. Payne was acquired from the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2017 in the deal that the Bulls sent Taj Gibson and Doug McDermott to the Thunder.

This season, he made 29 appearances with the Grizzlies.
