Holiday, the younger brother of NBA players Jrue Holiday and Justin Holiday, enjoyed a major breakout season at UCLA in 2017/18, increasing his scoring average by eight points per game to 20.3 PPG. That mark tied him with Arizona’s Deandre Ayton for the Pac-12 scoring lead. Holiday also chipped in 5.8 APG and 3.7 RPG, shooting 42.9% on three-point attempts.
The Pacers selected Holiday with the 23rd overall pick in the 2018 draft, which will put him in line for a first-year salary of approximately $1.91MM. That figure represents the maximum allowable 120% of the rookie scale amount for the No. 23 pick in 2018/19.
Like all other first-rounders who sign rookie scale contracts, Holiday will get two guaranteed years, with team options in years three and four.
