Blazers Claim Justin Holiday

October 12 2012 at 10:15pm CDT By Alex Lee

The Blazers announced tonight, via Twitter, that they have claimed Justin Holiday off waivers.  He will join the team on Sunday.  Justin, the older brother of Jrue Holiday, was released by the Cavs on Wednesday after being signed on October 1. 

Holiday, 23, played at Washington and went undrafted despite being ranked as the 57th-best prospect in the class by ESPN.com's Chad Ford.  He should still be considered a long shot to make an NBA roster, though it is interesting that he was claimed this late in the preseason.  Holiday will wear number 10.
