2019 Fantasy Outlook
The 23rd overall pick in 2018, Holiday served as the third point guard on Indiana's depth chart. Apart from his field-goal percentage, Holiday was solid overall, posting averages of 5.9 points (40.1 FG%, 33.9 3P%, 82.0 FT%), 1.7 assists, 1.3 rebounds, 0.9 threes, 0.4 steals and 0.3 blocks in 12.9 minutes across 50 appearances. With the Pacers essentially swapping out Darren Collison and Cory Joseph for Malcolm Brogdon and T.J. McConnell this summer, there's a chance Holiday begins 2019-20 as Brogdon's primary backup at point guard, though he'll have to beat McConnell out for the job. If that happens, an uptick in minutes combined with Holiday's aggressiveness offensively could mean a small breakout is on the horizon, especially with Victor Oladipo (knee) expected to remain sidelined until at least December. Still, the Pacers were the seventh-slowest team in the league last season in terms of pace. That's not expected to change, and it could limit possessions and make it difficult for Holiday to consistently fill up the stat sheet. Read Past Outlooks

College/International Summary

Aaron Holiday spent three years (2015-18) at the University of California - Los Angeles. He started all 32 games he played in as a freshman, averaging 10.3 points and 4 assists per contest. Holiday's 127 assists were the most by a UCLA freshman since his brother, Jrue, had 129 in 2008-09. As a sophomore, Holiday improved his stats despite getting on the court for fewer minutes. Playing behind current Pelicans' point guard Lonzo Ball, Holiday averaged 12.3 points and 4.4 assists per game, and was named the nation's Sixth Man of the Year by Bleacher Report. He would be one of five Bruins to finish the year averaging double digits in scoring. Holiday broke out in a big way as a junior, averaging 20.3 points and 5.8 assists in 33 games, all starts. Holiday led the Pac-12 in points per game, earning first-team All-Pac-12 Conference honors and becoming one of five players selected to the conference's All-Defensive Team. Holiday concluded his career ranking 25th on UCLA's all-time scoring list, and his 4.72 career mark for assists per game ranks seventh in school history.

Contributes 17 points to win
GIndiana Pacers
August 4, 2020
Holiday tallied 17 points (7-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block in 36 minutes during Monday's 111-100 win over the Wizards.
ANALYSIS
A game after turning in a double-double, Holiday had his best shooting effort since Jan. 26. The 23-year-old has scored at least 15 points in both of the Pacers' games since the NBA resumed play. He'll look to keep up the hot streak Tuesday against the Magic.

2018

The 6-foot-1 point guard averaged 5.9 points, 1.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists per contest. His best game of the season came early in the year, as Holiday accumulated a career-high 19 points and seven rebounds in a blowout win over Utah on Nov. 19. The late January injury suffered by Victor Oladipo opened up minutes in the Pacers rotation for Holiday. From Jan. 26 to Mar. 9, Holiday played 18 minutes per game and averaged 6.9 points, 2.0 and 1.2 made threes over nine games. Holiday showed proficiency on the defensive end. He collected at least one steal in 16 games, and had at least one block in 10 contests.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Holiday had rather pedestrian freshman and sophomore years at UCLA, but then burst onto the scene as a junior in 2017-18. He became a dominant scorer, having the ability to beat opposing defenders off the dribble or simply pull up and knock down shots from the perimeter. Holiday led the Bruins offensively with 20.3 points per game and hit a ridiculous 42.9 percent of his three-pointers, which marked a third straight year shooting over 40 percent from deep. However, he was also a distributor when needed and played solid defense, adding 5.8 assists and 1.3 steals to his final stat line in college. Following the breakout year, Holiday elected to leave early for the professional ranks and was selected by the Pacers with the 23rd overall pick in the first round. While he's got two family members with NBA experience -- brothers Jrue Holiday and Justin Holiday -- there's still some concerns surrounding Holiday's size, as he stands just 6-foot-1 and weighs in at 185 pounds. He'll certainly bulk up, but he could have trouble defending some of the bigger guards in the league. Either way, Holiday isn't likely in line for a huge role as a rookie. Darren Collison is locked in as a starter and Cory Joseph has earned the backup role with solid reserve play, while Tyreke Evans was brought in this offseason and can also handle the ball when needed. That means Holiday will likely just see spot minutes most nights and the 2018-19 campaign should generally be considered a developmental year. That said, both Collison and Joseph are on expiring deals, which makes Holiday a prime dynasty target.
