During the 2018-2019 season, Holiday averaged 10.5 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.8 assists with the Chicago Bulls and Memphis Grizzlies in 82 games. This season was the most amount of games Holiday started at 77.
Holiday has yet to find his footing in the NBA, being on his sixth team in eight seasons.
With most of the top-tier free agents off the market, teams are now looking to fill out the rest of the roster. Free agents like Holiday, Danny Green, DeMarcus Cousins and Kelly Oubre remain available.
While the Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Clippers and Toronto Raptors might show interest in Holiday, their focus is on the Kawhi Leonard sweepstakes.
Players like Justin Holiday provide boosts for teams in need of a serviceable starter of production off the bench.
Memphis is also looking to trade forward Andre Iguodala, who they acquired from the Golden State Warriors in a salary dump for the acquisition of Brooklyn Nets point guard D’Angelo Russell.
Memphis has been busy this offseason, trading point guard Mike Conley and drafting his replacement, Murray State point guard Ja Morant.
