Free agent guard Justin Holiday has signed a one-year deal with the Indiana Pacers, where he joins his brother Aaron. Last year, Holiday split time between Chicago and Memphis, playing in 82 games with 77 starts and putting up averages of 10.5 points and 3.9 rebounds on 38.6 percent shooting. Indiana's a better team and because of that won't afford Holiday with the same amount of minutes, but he gives the Pacers a bench option who can hit a ton of threes. There's late round fantasy value here, but not as much as there was for Holiday last season.
Memphis Grizzlies shooting guard/small forward Justin Holiday collected 22 points during Wednesdays win over the Golden State Warriors, shooting 8-for-16 from the floor overall, including 5-for-10 from behind the three-point line. Holiday averaged only 9.5 points per game over his final 44 contests this season since his acquisition from Chicago, but managed to reach the 20-point plateau in three of his final four outings. No matter where Holiday suits up next year, he has proven to be a durable commodity, having appearing in 82 games for the second time in the last three years.
Memphis Grizzlies shooting guard/small forward Justin Holiday struggled from the floor, making just three of his 10 shots to score nine points, but he did manage to add three steals in the loss. Holiday added a make from three and grabbed two boards on the night. Holiday is going to have the police after him, as he has now racked up 14 thefts in his last five games. The Grizzlies do not play until Wednesday and are very banged up, so Holiday should be in line for some nice usage when they play the Trail Blazers in the middle of the week.
