Multiple teams expressing interest in Nikola Mirotic

Multiple teams expressing interest in Nikola Mirotic”

First came ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowksi, who wrote in a lengthy piece on the National Basketball Association as a whole that Mirotic "has been intrigued with" the Jazz.

Mirotic has ostensibly been on the trade block since he was punched in the face by teammate Bobby Portis during a preseason practice in October.

Despite the team's recent surge up the standings, Nikola Mirotić still wants the Chicago Bulls to ship him elsewhere once he becomes trade-eligible on January 15, and he may have already singled out a potential landing spot.

As Stein notes, if the Bulls pick up their team option on the forward prior to dealing him, Mirotic would lose his current veto power over a trade as due to his current contract would become a two-year deal. It's not just limited to just Utah, either, as Stein also reported that the Detroit Pistons are in the mix, as are the Portland Trail Blazers, per K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune.

The Pistons, who are averaging 101.9 points per game, ranking them 27th in the league, could use Mirotic's scoring. The Bulls were just 3-20 when Mirotic debuted this season, but have gone 11-6 with Mirotic in the lineup. Mirotic and Portis appeared to have put the incident behind them as the two players have been able to get along with each other on the court, but the Bulls are still reportedly planning on trading the 6-foot-10 forward. He is now leading the team by posting a career-high 17.4 points with 48.6 percent shooting from the field and 46.5 percent from beyond the arc with 7.0 rebounds per contest. The second year of the deal is a team option, making him an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2019.
