Mirotic Will Likely Stay With Real Madrid Until 2014
Nikola Mirotic is in no rush to start his NBA career.
“He’ll remain under contract with Real Madrid for the next couple years,” Bulls general manager Gar Forman said. “But it’s certainly our goal and our expectation that Nikola will be in a Chicago Bulls uniform somewhere down the line. We’ll continue to monitor his progress and feel really good about the development that’s taking place.”
Mirotic was acquired by Chicago in a draft night deal last summer. This past season, he became the first two-time Euroleague Rising Star Trophy winner.
“Nikola is a very skilled player,” said Forman. “He can play inside and he can play outside. He can knock down the three-point shot. He’s a hardnosed player who we think will really fit in to our system.”
