Now it has been reported by Adrian Wojnarowaki of ESPN, that the Bulls acquired Marshon Brooks and Wayne Selden as well. Prior to the Holiday trade, the Bulls relinquished the rights to its own 2019 second-round draft pick to free up space during the 2016-2017 season for veteran guard Dwayne Wade. During his National Basketball Association career, Brooks has also played for the Celtics, Warriors, Lakers and Grizzlies, averaging 8.0 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 17.3 minutes per game.

Selden will be available for Sunday's game against the Nets, Cody Westerlund of 670 The Score reports.

Justin is a decent three-point shooter with a career number at 35%. That said, the Bulls actually found themselves a nice return when they dealt Justin Holiday to the Memphis Grizzlies on Thursday. Selden was a part of the regular rotation in Memphis for most of the season, but his workload had fallen off over the past month.

"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 also waived guard Cameron Payne, who was in his third season in Chicago.

The cost to Memphis here is a pair of second-round picks, both of which have a chance to end up in the top half of the round and be reasonably valuable.

Trading Holiday for two second-round draft picks is not what many would have liked to hear.

26, is averaging 6.6 points, 1.6 rebounds and 0.9 assists through 29 games this season.
