Nikola Mirotic agrees to three-year, $17 million deal with Bulls

Nikola Mirotic and the Chicago Bulls have agreed to a three-year, $17 million contract, according to Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Bulls acquired Mirotic on draft day in 2011, when he was selected No. 23, and since then he's been starring for Real Madrid. The sweet-shooting forward won MVP of the Spanish ACB in 2013 and MVP of the Spanish Cup in 2014.

It's been assumed that Mirotic would come over since a buyout was reportedly reached with Real Madrid earlier this month.

Adding Mirotic, a healthy Derrick Rose, Pau Gasol and Doug McDermott means Chicago's offense has a chance to be much, much better than it was last season. The Bulls ranked 28th in offensive efficiency in 2013-14.
