Aaron Holiday works out for the Phoenix Suns
Following a strong junior year at UCLA, point guard Aaron Holiday is attempting to join brothers Jrue and Justin at the next level in the NBA.
In is last season as a Bruin, Aaron averaged 20.3 points per game, 5.8 assist 3.7 rebounds per game and earned earned All Pac-12 conference honors.
As a competitive brother in the Holiday clan, when asked which Holiday brother was the best, he kidded, “We’ll see next year”.
He said that he learned a lot about the NBA and the draft process by watching his older brothers, Justin go undrafted and Jrue going in the first round.
He stated he has “to prove that I can play defense, great point guard, shoot well and be able to get to my spots and make plays”.
Phoenix Suns assistant General Manager Pat Connelly said about Holiday at the Suns pre-draft workouts, “I liked how vocal he was. He was feisty, he’s tough, aggressive, strong and a good shooter. It also helps to work with two brothers in the league, (so) that he can be pushed everyday in the summer. He’s grown up seeing what it takes from his brothers”.
Holiday is expected to be drafted in the first round and considering that the Phoenix Suns are not set at point guard he could be a possibility if he’s still there when the suns draft at 16th spot or later with the 31st.
