The Chicago Bulls are taking trade calls on shooting guard Justin Holiday, according to a report from Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Holiday, 29, is 6-foot-6. He is averaging 11.9 points and shooting 36 percent on 3-pointers and 90 percent from the free-throw line.

Jordan Brenner of The Athletic last week reported the New Orleans Pelicans and Houston Rockets were among the teams interested in Holiday. His brother, Jrue Holiday, is a starting guard for the Pelicans.

The Bulls are among the league's worst teams and are open to trading off some of their more experienced players for younger assets or draft picks. Along with Holiday, the Bulls are said to be aggressively trying to trade forward Jabari Parker and have been gauging interest on center Robin Lopez.

Holiday is in the final year of a two-year contract worth $9 million.
