Nikola Mirotic agrees to three-year, $17 million deal with Bulls
Chicago's finally getting Nikola Mirotic, and it's for a reasonable salary.
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.
