Bulls trading Mirotic could be the start of something Special

The Bulls Nikola Mirotic is finally living up to his promise after a good rookie season where he finished as the runner-up for the NBA Rookie of the Year award. Yeah I know he has only played in a handful of games but the 6’10 forward is averaging 20 points a game while shooting nearly 54% from the field. Mirotic fast start could give the Bulls a much needed trade commodity if the team decides to trade him. For some teams such as the Raptors, Celtics, and Rockets a good scoring forward could push them over the top of their conference. For Cleveland, adding Mirotic could be the missing piece that could help the Cavs win another NBA championship.

The Bulls adding Robin Lopez, Bobby Portis, and draft picks to a potential trade along with Mirotic could really increase their trade options. The Bulls could use Mirotic, Portis, Lopez, and draft picks in a package deal to hopefully land DeMarcus Cousins or another top free agent. The Bulls could also push for a trade to get Blake Griffin which could help attract free agents such as LeBron James, Isaiah Thomas, or Paul George. Obviously, the Bulls likely would have to put together a three team trade so Mirotic and Portis would not be on the same team since they are not speaking off the court. Yet such a trade could be the start of something special for the Bulls.
