Hawks Sign Justin Holiday

THURSDAY, 6:18pm: The deal is official, the Hawks announced in a press release. “Justin’s abilities on both ends of the court excited us as we looked to add depth on the wing,” coach/executive Mike Budenholzer said. “His combination of length and versatility with a great work ethic give him a chance to be a solid contributor on the court, and his experience on a championship team this past season and his high-character will be great positives for our locker room.

6:14pm: Holiday’s deal is for two years, and is fully guaranteed, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal Constitution tweets.

WEDNESDAY, 5:46pm: The Hawks have reached an agreement on a contract with unrestricted free agent Justin Holiday, Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports reports (Twitter link). The exact length and amount of the deal has not been disclosed at this time.

The 26-year-old spent last season with the NBA champion Warriors, appearing in 59 games and averaging 4.3 points, 1.2 rebounds, and 0.8 assists in 11.1 minutes per contest. His shooting numbers were .387/.321/.822. His career averages are 4.4 PPG, 1.3 RPG, and 0.9 APG.

Golden State had declined to extend Holiday a qualifying offer, making him an unrestricted free agent, and the team was considering re-signing him for less than the $1.147MM tender that would have counted against the team’s cap figure. The shooting guard will provide depth at the wing for the Hawks, who are set to lose unrestricted free agent DeMarre Carroll to the Raptors.

    Being a Warriors fan, I’m happy for J Holiday. Great teammate who has worked hard to get back to the NBA after going undrafted and playing overseas for a number of years. Made the team as a training camp invite and helped contribute in our championship run. Well deserved.

      1st the Baze now Justin. The Hawks are using the Warriors as a farm system.

      • Chuck Myron

        Not a bad farm system to take from, if that’s the case.

        Holliday just kept our bench from flipping over.

        Baze and Justin were not given any offers. They were dumped, not snatched from the Warriors. The facts are: McAdoo and Looney made Holiday expendable…

    Damn. I know this was a money thing, but I’ll miss him. You got yourselves a good one, Atlanta.

  3. The whole truth

    Good luck to Justin. This guy will help anybody. He is a quality human being. And will be a fine fit with the hawks. They play a similar type game as the warriors and the key is coachability. He will learn and share and be a great teamate. It was tough for him with the Warriors because of their depth. I think the hawks still have room for players who fit that mold. Your going to see a lot more of him next year. Bazemore should be looking over his shoulder. Justin can do more than bustle and play defense. Good sign hawks and good luck.
