2021 Fantasy Outlook
Holiday shifted into a mostly-starting role for the Pacers last season, but his numbers changed only marginally, and his fantasy value was practically identical to 2019-20. The 3-and-D wing averaged 10.5 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.6 combined steals-plus-blocks in 30.3 minutes, leading to a per-game fantasy rank of 142. However, his excellent availability -- not missing a game -- led to him ranking 87th in total production. Heading into 2021-22, Holiday's role shouldn't change dramatically. That said, if the team stays healthier -- namely, T.J. Warren and Jeremy Lamb -- Holiday could see a smaller role. That dynamic shouldn't affect fantasy managers in standard leagues, as Holiday on the fringes of 12-team relevance. Managers in deep leagues should keep the aforementioned playing time threat in mind, though. He should still make for a fine late-round option, but his ceiling is low, and he's really only useful for threes and steals. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a three-year, $18.02 million contract with the Pacers in November of 2020. Traded to the Kings in February of 2022.
Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Justin Holiday was born in 1989 in Mission Hills, California. He is the son of Shawn and Toya Holiday, who both played college basketball at Arizona State. His mother, Toya, was named Pac-10 Player of the Year in 1982. His younger brothers Jrue and Aaron have also both played in the NBA. Justin played his high school ball at Campbell Hall School in the Studio City neighborhood of Los Angeles, California. As a senior in 2006, Holiday averaged 19.1 points, 9.5 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per contest and led Campbell Hall to the state Class IV championship. Fans can follow Holiday on Twitter and Instagram (JustHolla7). Justin Holiday spent four years (2007-2011) at the University of Washington, played in a combined 123 games for the Huskies and made 56 career starts. Holiday spent the first two years of his collegiate career developing his game. He averaged 0.7 ppg as a freshman and improving that number to 2.1 ppg the next year. But Holiday broke out as a junior. He compiled 5.9 points and 4.5 rebounds per contest and made 21 starts. That season, Holiday was named to the Pac-12 All-Defense team, in recognition of his work ethic and defensive prowess. Holiday's senior season was his best. The forward averaged 10.5 points and 5.2 rebounds per contest, starting all 35 games he played.

Traded to Atlanta
FAtlanta Hawks
July 1, 2022
Holiday -- along with Maurice Harkless and a future first-round pick -- was traded Friday from the Kings to the Hawks for Kevin Huerter, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
After trading for Dejounte Murray, the Hawks have opted to deal Huerter for more size and defense. Holiday should fit in as a swiss army knife, able to play any position on the wing in a three-and-D role. Last season between Indiana and Sacramento, the 33-year-old averaged 10.1 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.7 assists while shooting 36.7 percent from deep.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Grizzlies could show interest
FIndiana Pacers
January 29, 2022
Holiday might be an trade target if the Grizzlies attempt to upgrade their roster before the trade deadline, according to Damichael Cole of the Memphis Commercial Appeal.
ANALYSIS
The Grizzlies could try to make a flashy move for someone like Caris LeVert, but Holiday would be a decent alternative and would be cheaper to acquire. Holiday is a three-and-D specialist who would be an excellent addition to Memphis' second unit while also fitting seamlessly in the team's defensive identity.

Holiday signed a one-year contract with the Pacers prior to the 2019-20 season. In 25.0 minutes per game, the veteran averaged 8.3 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.8 threes, 1.3 assists and 1.8 combined steals-plus-blocks. The three-and-D wing also contributed eight games with at least three made triples and two steals. Holiday didn't help many fantasy managers in standard leagues, but he made for a solid bench option in deeper formats. During the offseason, he re-upped with Indiana on a three-year, $18.0 million contract. Given that the Pacers haven't undergone any major roster changes -- though Victor Oladipo reportedly wants out -- Holiday should be in line for essentially the same role he played last season.
Holiday averaged 10.5 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.5 steals per game last season, splitting time between the Bulls and Timberwolves. He saw significant run for both teams, starting 77 games and playing 31.8 minutes per contest -- his second straight season with at least 31 minutes. Holiday also drained 2.0 threes per game in 2018-19, and he's averaged 2.1 threes on 35.4 percent shooting from deep in his last two seasons. Though he got a lot of playing time for the Bulls and Grizzlies, his minutes are likely to be reduced substantially as part of a deep Pacers lineup. Victor Oladipo, Jeremy Lamb and T.J. Warren are all firmly ahead of Holiday on the depth chart, and his role will be scaled back as he comes off the bench. But Holiday could still be a useful source of threes and steals as a deep-league add in 2019-20.
Last season, Holiday was afforded the opportunity to start double-digit games for the first time in his career. Across his previous four seasons, the University of Washington product drew just 13 starts with four different teams (Warriors, Hawks, Bulls, Knicks) after going undrafted in 2011. Holiday set career highs almost across the board, averaging 12.2 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.1 steals in 31.5 minutes. Though he struggled with efficiency (37.1 percent from the field), Holiday continued to flash his potential as a scorer, racking up eight twenty-point games. That said, with the Bulls re-signing Zach LaVine and adding Jabari Parker through free agency, there may be fewer minutes to go around for Holiday. As a result, he can probably go unselected in most Fantasy drafts, despite his breakout season.
Holiday's 2016-17 campaign was once again at a new destination, as the 28-year-old journeyman's stop in New York was the fourth organization he's played for over his first three seasons in the NBA. However, for the first time, Holiday was able to take part in all 82 games after playing less than 60 contests every other year, allowing him to put up career numbers. Holiday finished the season boosting his points (7.7), rebounds (2.8) and assists (1.2) for a year prior, while also posting career highs as a shooter with a 43.3 percent clip from the field and 35.5 percent from the three-point line. After signing a two-year, $9 million contract with the Bulls this offseason, Holiday could be in line for a slightly larger role. That said, with Zach LaVine, Paul Zipser and Denzel Valentine seeing time at shooting guard and/or small forward as well, Holiday is going to have plenty of competition for minutes. The potential buyout of Dwyane Wade could be especially beneficial for Holiday's value, though even if Wade sticks around, look for Holiday's numbers to once again trend upwards despite remaining in a bench role.
In his second season, Holiday averaged 4.3 points, 1.2 rebounds, 0.8 assists, 0.7 steals, and 0.2 blocks in 11 minutes per game through 59 regular season games. Holiday shot 39 percent from the field, 32 percent from downtown, and 82 percent from the charity stripe before being mostly relegated to the bench in the playoffs during the Warriors' championship run. He's 26 years old, but having played in only 68 regular season games during his career, he still has relatively little NBA playing experience. Still, in four games as a starter last season, he averaged of 10.3 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steal, and 0.5 blocks in 25 minutes per game while shooting 49 percent from the floor, 46 percent from deep, and 75 percent from the free-throw line. Holiday may be unlikely to earn significant playing time in 2015-16, but his length, athleticism, and outside shooting will be warmly welcomed given DeMarre Carroll's departure this offseason.
