Bulls' Nikola Mirotic: Signs two-year extension with Bulls
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mirotic signed a two-year, $27 million contract extension with the Bulls on Sunday, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Mirotic is coming off a relatively mediocre third year with the Bulls, where he averaged 10.6 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.8 three-pointers across 24.0 minutes. Largely known for his ability to hit the deep ball as a floor-spacing power forward, Mirotic actually saw his three-point percentage dip from 39 percent to 34.2 percent this past season. While the Bulls opted to bring Mirotic back, he'll actually have even more competition for playing time following the addition of first-round pick Lauri Markkanen. The two big men are both expected to compete for a spot in the starting lineup, though Mirotic's experience could ultimately help his cause. Still, it will be a situation to monitor throughout camp.

Bulls' Dwyane Wade: Buyout still a possibility
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bulls VP of Basketball Operations John Paxson said Thursday that the Bulls would cooperate if Wade is seeking a buyout, Cody Westerlund of 670 The Score reports.

The two sides have seemingly been butting heads behind the scenes after the Bulls all but cleared house over the summer, sending All-Star Jimmy Butler to Minnesota and shifting toward a long-overdue rebuild. Wade opted into the nearly $25 million remaining on his contract for the 2017-18 season, but that was before the Butler deal, and with the Bulls looking like a high-lottery team, it's been widely speculated that Wade will seek a buyout -- likely in hopes of joining a contender -- at some point. In the words of Paxson: "If [Wade] doesn't want to be here, then we want to do it."

Bulls' Zach LaVine: Will remain sidelined to begin season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LaVine (knee) remains ahead of schedule in his recovery from a torn ACL, but VP of Basketball Operations John Paxson said Thursday that LaVine will not be available to begin the season, Cody Westerlund of 670 The Score reports.

It was reported in July that LaVine could be ready in time for training camp, and while that won't be the case, he's still on track to return earlier than anticipated. LaVine tore his ACL in February, and at this point it seems realistic to expect that he'll be back on the court sometime before 2017 comes to a close. That said, the Bulls have not provided a firm timeline, so LaVine's fantasy value is somewhat in limbo. Once he returns and gets back up to speed, the UCLA product is expected to enter the starting lineup, and the shooting guard spot could open up if the team eventually buys out Dwyane Wade.

Bulls' Diamond Stone: Signs contract with Bulls
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stone signed a contract with the Bulls on Thursday.

Stone, who was drafted by the Clippers with the 40th overall pick of the 2016 NBA Draft, struggled to play much of a factor during his rookie season. He saw action in just seven games, averaging a meager 3.4 minutes. However, the 20-year-old big man still has some upside and he'll be joining one of the weaker rosters in the league. That would likely give Stone a chance to see an uptick in minutes if he were to ultimately make the team. His contract is more than likely just a training camp deal, so he'll still have to play well throughout the preseason to earn a spot on the roster. There's a chance he ends up with the team's G-League affiliate when all is said and done. He impressed in 13 games at the G-League level last season, averaging 16.2 points and 7.0 rebounds across 21.7 minutes.
