That closes the book on a disappointing Chicago tenure for Payne, the centerpiece of the Bulls' 2017 deadline deal sending Taj Gibson to the Oklahoma City Thunder. He was averaging 11.6 points, 4.4 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.8 steals, and 0.6 blocks.

Brooks averaged 6.6 points, 1.6 rebounds, and 10.3 FanDuel points per game this season. According to The Athletic, Brooks and his agent are working with Chicago in hopes the team will trade him to another team.

Memphis also sent second-round picks in 2019 and 2020 to Chicago in the deal Thursday. He's shooting 40.4 percent overall and 31.7 percent on 3-pointers. The rookie has played well as of late, but he is less proven at the offensive end than Holiday is. Brooks is averaging 6.6 points and Selden is scoring 5.4.

The cost to Memphis here is a pair of second-round picks, both of which have a chance to end up in the top half of the round and be reasonably valuable. A first-round pick would've been more ideal.

Apple to Miss Sales Expectations, Dow takes a Hit
President Donald Trump is chiming in on Apple's sales warning earlier this week, which led the company's stock to drop . Apple sets prices in different countries based in part on taxes and the local currency's strength against the dollar.

Holiday is now on the backend of a two-year deal with the Bulls, and it expires at the season's end.

Holiday is a solid 3-and-D wing player, but the 29-year-old is not as useful to the Bulls as future assets are.

With the move, the Bulls need to waive a player and Wojnarowski is reporting that it will likely be guard Cameron Payne that is let go. He played a few games for the New Orleans Pelicans in 2016-17 on a 10-day contract, and was then signed by the Grizzlies for the remainder of 2016-17, lasting through this season.
