Mirotic on the Trade Block

Mirotic on the Trading Block?

Nikola Mirotic’s Time with Chicago Bulls Looks to Be Coming to an End

Despite a hot stretch, the Chicago Bulls aren’t hindering from their rebuild plans.

After returning from his facial injury suffered from altercation with teammate Bobby Portis, Nikola Mirotic has been one of the more impressive names on an otherwise lacklustre Bulls team. Despite playing quite possibly his best basketball of his NBA career and seemingly moving past his beef with Portis, Mirotic and his representatives remain firm on his trade request and according to reports, are more than willing to waive Mirotic’s no-trade clause once he turns eligible on January 15.

For the organization, that would mean they could get value in return while clearing $37-million off their books.

On the season, Mirotic is averaging 17.9-points and 7.3-rebounds per contest, while shooting 45.9% from long range. He also holds a positive Defensive Real Plus-Minus on the other side of the floor. His per-36 minutes numbers may be even more impressive: 25.6-points, 10.5-rebounds.

With Zach LaVine’s impending return, moving Mirotic will open up space for the Bulls organization to see what they have in the athletic young guard.

Twitter has already been having some fun with potential destinations for the international forward.

The Bulls may have quite the trade chip on their hands.
