Doug McDermott wouldn’t be an immediate option, after the team announced he signed his contract early Tuesday afternoon, which according to NBA rules, makes it so a rookie can’t be traded until at least 30 days after he puts his name on the dotted line. Chicago Sun-Times

Montenegrin forward Nikola Mirotic will become this season the best paid European rookie in the history of the NBA with a first-year salary of $5,305,000 – clearly ahead of the $4.5 million Italian big man Andrea Bargnani commanded in 2006. Mirotic's deal with the Chicago Bulls calls for him to make $16.6 million in three years, which will be more than enough to offset the $3 million he will have to pay Real Madrid for his contract buyout.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are firmly in the lead to acquire Kevin Love but the Chicago Bulls are making a renewed push to get into the trade mix for the All-Star power forward, according to sources close to the process. ESPN.com

Sources say that the Bulls, though, have this re-entered the race and would appear to be the biggest threat to the Cavs, thanks largely to the Golden State Warriors' resolute unwillingness to add longtime Wolves target Klay Thompson in a deal. Although the full extent of the Bulls' offer wasn't immediately known, it is believed Minnesota would seek a package from Chicago featuring forward Taj Gibson and defensive ace Jimmy Butler in addition to other assets. The Bulls shelved their Love interest while trying to sign Carmelo Anthony away from the New York Knicks but, according to sources, have re-emerged as a contender. ESPN.com

Only the first year is fully guaranteed. Chicago Tribune

You like 'McBuckets' as a nickname? Doug McDermott: I think it's funny. It's probably not going to be the same in college in terms of buckets, but it's pretty cool. Everyone says it's one of the better nicknames they've heard, so I guess so. NBA.com
