Nikola Mirotic agrees to return to Bulls

Nikola Mirotic agrees to return to Bulls”

According to a report by Shams Charania of The Verticle, Mirotic has agreed to a two-year, $27 millon dollar deal with the team, staying with his first organization in the National Basketball Association.

Eighty-six days after free agency opened and just a day ahead of the start of training camp, power forward Nikola Mirotic and the Bulls have finally reached an agreement on a new deal.

He had faced an October 1 deadline on a one-year, $7.2 million qualifying offer. The Bulls were incentivized to make a deal as they are now below the minimum salary floor. Unable to put together consistent stretches under Fred Hoiberg, there was question as to if Mirotic fit in the short-term plans, let alone the big picture as the Bulls are gearing up for a long rebuild. He had a solid season in the 2016-17 campaign for Chicago, averaging 10.6 points and 5.5 rebounds per game while playing 24 minutes per contest. As part of his new deal, Mirotic has the right to veto any trade in the 2017-'18 season, Charania reported.
