by July 09, 2015

Free agent swingman Justin Holiday will to suit up for the Atlanta Hawks next season, having come to terms on a reported two-year deal.

Jrue Holiday’s older brother came off the bench for the NBA champion Golden State Warriors last season; the 26-year-old averaged 4.3 points in 59 appearances.

Per the AJC:

The Hawks reached a contract agreement with Justin Holiday Wednesday, according to several people familiar with the situation. The deal is for two years fully guaranteed.


Holiday, a 6-foot-6, 185-pound shooting guard/small forward, played last season for the Warriors. In 59 games, he averaged 4.3 points and 1.2 rebounds in 11.1 minutes. He also appeared in nine games for the 76ers in the 2012-13 season. Holiday has appeared in 68 career NBA games, including four starts, and averaged 4.4 points, 1.3 rebounds and .9 assists in 11.8 minutes.


The addition will give the Hawks needed depth at the wing following the loss of DeMarre Carroll to free agency last week. […] Holiday, 26, is another in a string of typical Hawks signings. He enters his prime with a significant upside and is a player the team would have watched in the NBA Development League and Summer League. He has also been described as a high-quality individual off the court.
