Spurs to work out Justin Holiday

The San Antonio Spurs will work out Justin Holiday out of Washington.

Holiday is a 6’6″, 185 lbs., guard/forward and averaged 10.5 points, shot 46.5% from the field, 35.9% from the three-point line, 77.2% from the free-throw line, 5.2 rebounds, 2.1 assists, and 1.2 steals in 28.3 minutes for the Huskies last season.

Holiday is known for his defense. He averaged 5.2 rebounds, finished with 41 steals and 38 blocks.

“I go and show teams my game,” he said. “My main strength is defense so I go and make sure I show that I can defend. That’s the main reason why they bring me in.

“Then when they see that I can defend, I want to show I can do other things as well. But at the end of the day, all you can do is do your best. Put it all out there and hope that’s enough to win a job.”

More on Holiday and his scoring ability:

His ability to knock down perimeter shots with his feet set on a consistent basis will likely be a big factor in whether or not he’s able to land a spot on an NBA roster, since he’s very limited as a scorer otherwise. He’ll undoubtedly be working hard on this aspect of his game up until draft day as he’ll need to convince NBA decision-makers in his workouts that his early season shooting was no fluke. He’s obviously put some work in to make the progress he has over the last few years, so it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him continue to improve. (draftexpress.com)

Well Spurs fans, seems Holiday might be a perimeter defender the Spurs also need aside from their need for a center. Holiday could fill that role but what do you think Spurs fans?
