Former lottery pick Payne waived by Bulls

The deal was first reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Bulls sent shooting guard Justin Holiday to the Grizzlies for shooting guards Wayne Selden and MarShon Brooks, as well as two second-round draft picks.

A three-team trade involving the Phoenix Suns, Memphis Grizzlies and Washington Wizards fell through Friday night, according to multiple outlets, over a odd miscommunication about which player named Brooks would be included.

The Bulls signed Holiday as a free agent prior to the start of the 2017-18 season.

The Chicago Bulls have waived fourth-year point guard Cameron Payne following their trade Thursday with the Memphis Grizzlies. His 97 3-pointers are the eighth-most in the National Basketball Association this season.

An NBA veteran with five seasons of service, Brooks has also played for the Celtics, Warriors, Lakers and Grizzlies.

Memphis had been using Brooks and Selden as reserves, and they're averaging 6.6 and 5.4 points per game, respectively.

Nearly immediately following the trade, the Bulls chose to waive point guard Cameron Payne.

The 29-year-old is averaging 11.6 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 2.2 assists per contest through 38 games this season.
