Chicago Bulls Rumors: Nikola Mirotic buyout is a done deal

The Chicago Bulls are looking at ways they can get better this offseason and one of the things that fans and the front office have been looking at for the last few years isn’t a free aegnt ont he market or a player being used as trade bait, rather someone Chicago drafted and has stashed overseas.

Nikola Mirotic is a player the Bulls have been trying to get over to the NBA for the past few years now and it appears that he’s finally ready to make the leap. Mirotic has been playing Spanish basketball for Real Madrid but his $3 million buyout is reportedly final and he’ll be coming over to the NBA in 2014-15.

This is exactly what Bulls fans wanted to hear as Mirotic has been part of the Bulls vision for a while now but it was a mystery as to when he’d come over. Chicago has had success with foreign players in the past, most recently with Omer Asik and there is hope that Mirotic can play behind Taj Gibson in the lineup or even in place of him should he need to be moved to make room for Carmelo Anthony to sign with the team.

Either way, it’s looking more and more likely that Mirotic comes over to the Bulls in 2014-15 which is better late then never.
