Holiday was traded to the Knicks on Wednesday as part of a five-player deal, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports. Holiday, Derrick Rose and a second-round pick will be dealt to the Knicks, while the Bulls are set to receive Robin Lopez, Jose Calderon and Jerian Grant. Holiday was traded from the Hawks to the Bulls at the trade deadline last season, and now moves to the Knicks, making New York his fifth team in the last three years. Holiday played in a bench role with the Bulls over 27 games, seeing just under 19 minutes per game. Despite moving to the Knicks, he'll still for the most part remain buried on the depth chart, so he could struggle to see fantasy worthy minutes again during his fourth campaign.
Holiday poured in 29 points (9-15 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 6-8 FT), three rebounds, five assist, two steals, and one block in 37 minutes during Wednesday's win against the 76ers. Holiday found some success in Chicago after bouncing in and out of the league for the last four years, playing solid rotation minutes over the last several months. His playing time mostly came because the Bulls threw in the towel on a disappointing season, but it's encouraging to see him produce nonetheless.
Holiday had 14 points (6-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt), four rebounds, and three assists across 26 minutes during the Bulls' 121-116 win over the Pelicans on Monday. Holiday committed five fouls but zero turnovers, and he was rather efficient in Monday's start. The Bulls have been eliminated from playoff contention, which is what led to Derrick Rose being shut down. As a result, Holiday will likely be a decent dart throw in daily leagues for Wednesday's season finale versus the 76ers.
Holiday will start in Monday's tilt with the Pelicans, Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago reports. Holiday will start in place of Derrick Rose at point guard on Monday. Rose has been ruled out for the final two games of the season, so there is a good chance Holiday could end the year with some solid minutes. He has posted 8.3 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 1.0 assists in three starts this season.
Holiday had 13 points (6-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt), six rebounds, one assist, and one block across 30 minutes during the Bulls' 117-96 loss to the Wizards on Wednesday. Holiday has scored in double figures during three of the last four games, and it's possible Mike Dunleavy's illness combined with the blowout result is what allowed Holiday to see so many minutes Wednesday despite moving back to the bench. He has hit a three-pointer in four straight contests, but Holiday may be unlikely to reach 30 minutes again soon if Jimmy Butler or Mike Dunleavy don't suffer setbacks.
