The Bulls have agreed to trade Justin Holiday to the Memphis Grizzlies for MarShon Brooks, Wayne Selden, and two 2nd round draft picks…
Can confirm the Holiday to Grizzlies deal, which brings the Bulls Marshon Brooks, Wayne Selden 2019 and 2020 2nd-round picks, as @wojespn 1st reported. Bulls will waive one player and also are still shopping Jabari Parker and Robin Lopez.

As Chicago Tribune reporter, KC Johnson, suggests above, the Bulls may not be finished wheeling and dealing. The Bulls need to clear a roster spot in order to make the trade official. That could mean waiving a player currently on the roster…
Nothing finalized yet, but Chicago is likely to waive guard Cameron Payne, league sources tell ESPN. Payne, 24, was the 14th overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft to OKC.

or, more likely, it means getting a third team involved in order to move MarShon Brooks, Robin Lopez and or Jabari Parker, so the Bulls won’t be forced to part ways with anyone. * Cough-Cameron Payne-Cough *
Sources: The Bulls and MarShon Brooks‘ agent, Wallace Prather, plan to work on resolution for new destination for Brooks. Chicago doesn’t plan to have Brooks report to team, or waive him immediately, after Memphis trade.

MarShon Brooks seems to be the odds on favorite to find a new home. That will make the many Bulls fans who were hoping to see the end of the Cameron Payne era very sad.
