Reports: Atlanta Hawks agree to contract with guard Justin Holiday

Wednesday July 8th, 2015

Free agent guard Justin Holiday will sign with the Atlanta Hawks, according to multiple reports.

Yahoo's Marc Spears first reported the news. No figures have been reported yet, but according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Chris Vivlamore, both years of Holiday's deal are guaranteed.

Holiday, 26, spent last season as a member of the Warriors bench, averaging 4.3 points and 11 minutes in 59 games. The older brother of New Orleans Pelicans point guard Jrue Holiday, Holiday went undrafted in 2011 and spent time overseas, in the D-League and with the 76ers before landing in Golden State last season.

The 6'6" shooting guard joins new Hawks acquisition Tim Hardaway Jr. and incumbents Kent Bazemore and Thabo Sefolosha alongside Kyle Korver on the wing.
