Plenty of discussion of Nikola Mirotic and his buyout, but KC didn’t seem to have the info set yet. From what I’ve been able to dig up, he has a fixed buy out in 2015 of $1 million dollars, and Real Madrid will be willing to potentially sell him in 2014. I think 2014/15 season is the soonest he’s going to make it here.
KC also said he never go the sense they were trying to trade up or get involved in the Fernadnez or Jackson trades on draft day and weren’t interested in those players.
He also noted, that presently, he doesn’t think they’re interested in Monta Ellis because the backcourt would be too small and have defensive problems.
However, he said he thinks they will trade for a SG, the front office is confident they’ll be able to get their guy when the new CBA ends, and at the start of next season they’ll have upgraded that SG position.
KC also noted that rumor has it that Jimmy Butler blew up Marshon Brooks in their workout, dominating him in their workout physically. Marshon Brooks had a lousy workout with Chicago, and the Bulls never had him on their radar. He looked soft and not ready to play at this level.
Plenty of love for Jimmy Butler, the phrase “best perimeter defender in college basketball” came out, though KC said a lot of those things are hyperbole at this time of year.
Matt Spiegel then decided to go to draftexpress.com and read the downsides to Marshon Brooks and the upsides of Jimmy Butler and act like those were the only information written about each player. Nice job guy.
Nice information by KC there.
