Scouting Report

Holiday should get a hard look from NBA teams based on bloodlines alone, with older brothers Jrue and Justin both established players in the league. He's the smallest of the trio but may be the best pure shooter, connecting on 42.2 percent of his 3-point attempts and 80 percent of his free throws during a three-year stint at UCLA he completed by leading the Pac-12 in scoring (20.3 ppg) as a junior. Holiday should also be a capable defender who combats a lack of height with good length and the tenacious mentality required to be an on-ball disruptor. He'll probably be limited to guarding point guards, however, and will need to improve his ball-handling and decision making to develop into a trustworthy floor general at the next level. Holiday's struggles against pressure were pronounced in his final college game, when he committed 10 turnovers in UCLA's NCAA Tournament loss to St. Bonaventure. Though undersized and still a work in progress in some vital areas, the Los Angeles native has the makeup and shot-making ability to possibly carve out a career similar to Darren Collison, another smallish former Bruin who's had a solid nine-year run since entering the league as a late first-round pick.
