They say all good Holidays must come to an end.

Aaron Holiday tweeted Monday night that he has declared for the upcoming 2018 NBA Draft. The junior point guard intends to sign with an agent, said a UCLA spokesperson. If he does, he will automatically forgo his final year of NCAA eligibility, and therefore leave UCLA.

Holiday was one of the Pac-12’s best players this season, posting 20.3 points per game, 3.7 rebounds per game and 5.8 assists per game. He also shined defensively, with coach Steve Alford lauding the point guard all year long for consistently matching up with the opposition’s best guard.

An ESPN mock draft has Holiday going 23rd overall to the Lakers, who selected former Bruin Lonzo Ball with the second overall pick in the draft last year.
