Chicago Bulls Rumors
And while there was some thought that a top-3 pick coupled with a few decent players might be enough to entice the Bulls to pull the trigger on a deal to trade Butler, CSNNE.com has been told such an offer would have to include at least one “legitimate, NBA starter” for the Bulls to even possibly consider trading him. “And that might be a stretch,” the source indicated.
Nikola Mirotic: “I’m eager to return to the National Team. I’ve been focused on finishing the season strong and be ready so (head coach Sergio) Scariolo calls me. The rest is not up to me. I’m totally available and of course I will respect whatever the head coach decides.”
