Nikola Mirotic and his representatives remain firm on his trade request from the Chicago Bulls and is willing to waive his no-trade clause when he becomes eligible on Jan. 15th.

Mirotic has been a key factor in the mostly stellar play of the second unit.

Zach LaVine will be ready to return around the same time Mirotic can be traded. LaVine completed his sixth consecutive practice Thursday and will travel with the team to Dallas and Indiana on Friday and Saturday.
