Hawks Sign Aaron Holiday To One-Year Deal

JULY 6: The Hawks have officially signed Holiday, the team announced today in a press release.

JULY 1: Aaron Holiday is joining the Hawks on a one-year contract, tweets Shams Charania of The Athletic. It will be a veteran’s minimum deal, according to Lauren L. Williams of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (Twitter link).

The 25-year-old guard began last season with the Wizards before being traded to the Suns at the February deadline. Holiday averaged 6.8 points, 2.5 rebounds and 3.4 assists in 22 games with Phoenix, but he wasn’t in the playoff rotation and saw minimal playing time in six postseason games.

Holiday became an unrestricted free agent this week when the Suns elected not to tender a qualifying offer.

The 23rd pick in the 2018 draft, Holiday spent three seasons with the Pacers before being traded to Washington last summer in a five-team deal. The former UCLA star was mostly a backup in Indiana, but started 33 games during the 2019/20 season.

Holiday should help fill the void left by Delon Wright, who is headed to the Wizards in free agency.
