The Chicago Bulls could be one of the more active teams leading up to the trade deadline in February. But agreeing to deal Holiday and his expiring $4.5 million contract is a start.

While the Utah Jazz acquired forward Kyle Korver from the Cleveland Cavaliers through a similarly packaged deal, the Bulls did not get enough value in return for Holiday, especially considering how much youth remains on his side and the serviceable amount likely necessary to re-sign.

"He's had a good time down there", Selden said. "I take a lot of pride in my defense, and I hate when guys score on me".

Memphis hopes for a revival behind Holiday, who has averaged 11.6 points, 4.4 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.76 steals in nearly 35 minutes a game as a starter for the Bulls.

Brooks, 29, is a journeyman who's averaging 6.6 points in 13.3 minutes across 29 games while shooting 45.0 percent overall and 27.8 percent from 3-point range.

But even some of those most inclined towards Warren in the primary wondered about general election electability. No wonder she was a big hit on her regular appearances on the Jon Stewart show before she was in the Senate.


In addition, the Bulls are receiving two second round draft picks.

Selden, 24, has averages of 5.4 points, 1.1 assists and 1.4 rebounds in 32 games. This season, hes averaging 5.4 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 14.2 minutes per game. His contract expires at season's end.

"I can do different things".

"I'm just gonna continue to play the game and be aggressive when the opportunities come and then just continue to be reliable on the defensive end". "I'm athletic. I feel I can do different things on the court to help this team".

"He's a big body".

The Bulls were expected to waive a player to make this deal possible.

I personally am thrilled with Holiday being he was already the 2nd target on my bargain bin list of guys who fit the Grizzlies interest behind my main preference who was Jonathan Simmons but Holiday comes at almost half the price of the Orlando Magic wing. Hutch [Hutchison] can do that with his length and athleticism.

The Bulls also waived Cameron Payne to finalize the trade.

So guess what the response was to the report of the second and very real MarShon Brooks trade?
