Bulls Met With Nikola Mirotic

Real Madrid forward Nikola Mirotic met with the Bulls yesterday in Madrid, according to HoopsHype (via Twitter).  Mirotic, whose draft rights are owned by Chicago, is expected to have another pow wow with the club today (link).

The Bulls selected Mirotic with the 23rd pick in the 2011 draft.  Since then, the forward has blossomed into a superstar in Spain with one NBA scout recently calling him “the best player not in the NBA right now”.  If Mirotic is brought over to the states, it could have a dramatic effect on the rest of the Bulls’ plans and might make  it more likely that they will use the amnesty clause on Carlos Boozer.

So far this season, Mirotic is averaging a career-high 16.2 PPG with 6.7 boards per contest.
