    The Myth Nikola Mirotic set to come to the Chicago Bulls

    @WindhorstESPN: The Bulls are working on signing F Nikola Mirotic, sources told ESPN. He secured buyout today from Real Madrid according to @hoopshype

    @WindhorstESPN: This doesn't mean the Bulls pursuit of Carmelo Anthony is over but the cap space required to sign Mirotic restricts options.


    @chicagobullsbot: Real Madrid Nikola Mirotic averaged 19.0 PPG, 53.4% FG, 46.1% 3PT per 36 mins in Euroleague this season despite all his late season issues.



    He can't be used in a sign and trade for 30 days after he signs ; but he becomes a very valuable trade piece for those teams worrying about if he would come over.

    Just watched some tape on him. He has to bring the ball below his waist on every jump shot, giving him an incredibly slow shooting stroke even when he's shooting off the dribble. That's going to be a problem in the NBA.

    If we amnesty boozer, trade dunleavy and our non guaranteed contracts, I think we can clear up about 17 mil

    14. Why are you still reading?

    Mirotic would be a new contract. If they feel like they can't get Melo or don't have a good chance this is the right course of action. Perfect time to get him over.

    Mirotic hasn't been brought out yet and they likely won't do it until Melo made his choice . Mirotic rights can still be moved in a deal and with him having a big fall out with Madrid he's more likely to play with anyone now in the NBA if dealt . Bulls are in a very good situation regardless if they get Melo or not .

    The Myth Nikola Mirotic set to come to the Chicago Bulls

    The flaws he has can be easily fixed with time in the weight room which almost every bull improves on their body going into the next season and Thibs coaching . http://youtu.be/JjaHc9Vp9wU

    LOL okay. They can offer that NOW. Once Mirocic comes over, you'll be able to offer like $15 million.

    You're done. If you think Melo is going to accept $15 million a year to play next to the new Amare Stoudemire, you're kidding yourself.

    Love all the Bulls fans that think they're getting Melo for $15 million a year. Give me a break.

    True, I can see him used in a SnT. If Melo gets to Chicago it will likely be a SnT, and he will likely be involved. If not they bring over an awesomely talented young big and can try to sign a FA, maybe even pry Lance from Indiana with how that's going. There are worse plan B's in this league lol.
