The struggling Memphis Grizzlies have acquired guard Justin Holiday from the Chicago Bulls for guards MarShon Brooks and Wayne Selden Jr.

This season, he appeared in 38 games with 38 starts.

He has averaged 7.9 points and 2.8 rebounds in 313 career games. 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.

The Chicago Bulls could be one of the more active teams leading up to the trade deadline in February.

That will be useful for a Memphis team that has lost eight of its past 10 games to slip from sixth in the Western Conference three weeks ago to a tie for 10th entering play Thursday. Meanwhile, Selden's 32 percent 3-point shooting and his penchant for overexuberant mistakes made it hard for coach J.B. Bickerstaff to trust him on the court.

American detained on spy charges in Moscow
The FSB, which said the American had been detained on December 28, added that a criminal case had been opened against him. Alexander Mikhailov, a retired FSB officer, said the arrest reflected the effectiveness of Russian counterintelligence.

"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 Bulls will hold two second-round picks in 2020.

Payne, 24, was drafted 14th overall by the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2015 and was traded to the Bulls last February.

With the move, the Bulls need to waive a player and Wojnarowski is reporting that it will likely be guard Cameron Payne that is let go.

It was later reported by Charania that those picks are second rounders. He played a few games for the New Orleans Pelicans in 2016-17 on a 10-day contract, and was then signed by the Grizzlies for the remainder of 2016-17, lasting through this season.
