Bulls plan to deal Nikola Mirotic

Bill DiFilippo

The Chicago Bulls are reportedly shopping sharp-shooting forward Nikola Mirotic, and with rumors that the Portland Trail Blazers could be getting involved, we want to know if you - the fans - think the 6-foot-10 forward would be a good fit in Rip City. According to Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times, Mirotic's representatives haven't budged on his trade request and he is willing to waive his no-trade clause when he becomes eligible to be dealt on January 15.

Marc Stein of the New York Times reported Tuesday that the Pistons have joined the Utah Jazz in expressing trade interest for the Bulls forward.

Reports are now indicating that the Bulls are seeking a first-round compensation in the eventual return package. Or they can shop him as a productive player on a manageable two-year, $27 million deal, with the Bulls picking up the option before the trade. Other teams likely will get serious about Mirotic as well. Mirotic is now on a one-year, $12.5 million deal that has a club option worth $12.5 million for the 2018-19 season.

And this month she'll gain a TV platform for her movement against sexual harassment and misconduct. The first two hours will air January 30 with four more episodes due out in the spring.

In 17 games, Mirotic has averaged 17.4 points and seven rebounds per game.

"Executive vice president John Paxson has made clear the team won't trade Mirotic simply to acquiesce to his desire to be elsewhere in the wake of the Bobby Portis' incident", he added. It is still unclear when exactly LaVine will return to the court. I'm just going to wait and see, see how my body feels. With the Bulls floundering with one of the worst records in the Eastern Conference, it could push them to make a move to acquire additional assets to build around their core group.
