Bull market | Assessing the trade of Nikola Mirotic to Pelicans

Bull market | Assessing the trade of Nikola Mirotic to Pelicans

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Chicago Bulls have traded forward Nikola Mirotic to the New Orleans Pelicans. Along with that, the Bulls are also getting guards Tony Allen and Jameer Nelson.

Nevertheless, although earlier a purported deal to send Mirotic to New Orleans fell apart, creating some hope that he could still be had by the Jazz, ultimately Chicago and the New Orleans Pelicans came to an agreement and a Mirotic deal was finalized today.

Finally, the Bulls will have the right to exchange second round picks with the Pelicans in 2021, according to reports. Should the Bulls deal veterans like Justin Holiday or Robin Lopez to pick up more future assets, there's no reason the Bulls couldn't find themselves in the top-3 on lottery night. There really is no need for either one of them on this Chicago roster.

Arizona man says he sold ammo to Las Vegas shooter
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that more than 300 documents related to the shooting were unsealed by court order on Tuesday. That person could face federal charges not directly related to the shooting within the next 60 days, the sheriff said January 19.

Asik, who spent time with Chicago as a defensive enforcer during Derrick Rose's prime years, has $11.2 and $11.9 million left on his albatross of a contract. He finished his rookie season averaging 10.2 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 1.7 assists on 40.5 percent shooting from the field. The altercation soured Mirotic on playing for Chicago, and the Bulls were looking to accommodate his request to be traded. This echoes their decision to give a first-rounder back to the Timberwolves in the Jimmy Butler trade. Despite being drafted in the 2011 draft, Mirotic would not see an National Basketball Association court until the 2014 season. Health has been a recent issue for Asik though; he has only played in 45 games over the last two seasons while recovering from Chron's Disease.

We'll update this post if any further details emerge. New Orleans could pick up Mirotic's $12.5 million team option for the 2018-19 season. This was Mirotic's final pump-fake as a member of the Bulls. The Bulls looked like the worst team in the league at the start of the season. Tellingly, when asked about waiving players, Paxson said a week remains until the February 8 deadline.

Shortly after, Mirotic's representation made it known that he wanted out of Chicago, even though he wouldn't be eligible to be traded until January 15. "This type of deal allows us to put Paul and Cris out on the floor more than they've been all season long".
