  • Bulls Justin Holiday

That closes the book on a disappointing Chicago tenure for Payne, the centerpiece of the Bulls' 2017 deadline deal sending Taj Gibson to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Stumbling after losing 8 of 10 games, the Memphis Grizzlies obtained guard Justin Holiday from the Chicago Bulls in an National Basketball Association trade deal for two reserves and two draft picks. This is yet another example of the Bulls' front office demonstrating utter incompetency to make the right decision. The question was mostly who could offer the best second-round picks in return. Hutch (Chandler Hutchison) can do that with his length and athleticism. After lockerroom fights and losing 14 of the last 20 games, by trading for Justin Holiday. Many have questioned if the franchise would consider re-signing the veteran. He's shooting 35.9 percent from 3-point range with a career-high 7.1 attempts per game.

Now with Holiday on board, I suspect that if Temple continues to struggle that we see Holiday begin to take on more of his role on the court. The longtime Bull is averaging 4.2 points and 3.2 rebounds in 12 games for the Grizzlies.

Holiday is versatile enough to play alongside any of Memphis' other wings, allowing him to start or come off the bench depending on how Bickerstaff's rotation shakes out.

For now, though, the Grizzlies need help and they are focusing on what Holiday does well.

Bulls coach Jim Boylen believes Selden can do a lot of things that fit into his style.

The trade is anticipated to signal the start of more changes to the Bulls' roster.

The Bulls are in a dealmaking mode, shopping center Robin Lopez and forward Jabari Parker in trade talks, sources told ESPN. It remains unclear if the Bulls will be able to trade either big man ahead of the February 7 deadline.
