With the Summer League coming up, a player may shine and grab a roster spot. That’s what happened with Justin Holiday. After an impressive showing, the Warriors offered a camp invite and was signed after that. Looks like his stint with the Warriors is coming to an end.
Holiday was used sparingly and rarely saw playing time. Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports has reported an agreement between the Atlanta Hawks and Holiday:

Golden State did not extend the qualifying offer thus making Holiday an unresitrcted free agent but the Warriors were interesting in bringing him back for cheaper. The 6-foot-5 shooting guard / small forward will bring outside shooting to a Hawks team that lost DeMarre Carroll. Right now, there is no information on the length and amount of the deal.
The journey man is the older brother of Jrue Holiday. After playing four years at the University of Washington, he was undrafted in 2011. At least his one season with the Warriors came with a championship run. Holdiay appeared in 59 games and averaged 4.3 points in about 11.1 minutes per game.
