nikola mirotic won't speculate on future with bulls


if nikola mirotic is obsessing about his future come monday — the first day the bulls forward is eligible to be traded — the veteran is hiding it pretty well.following the bulls’ shootaround in advance of saturday night’s game against the pistons, mirotic claimed not to know that monday could be a significant date in his life.“thanks for the information,” mirotic said after the media informed him of the significance of the day. “that’s probably the biggest information that i need to know.”while it’s likely mirotic is being coy, he said, “to be honest i don’t listen too much to what is going on outside. i just focus on what is going on here and up to my last day try to be the best player possible and be professional and help this team to be able to win.”when it comes to his future, mirotic






bad taste? nikola mirotic's mayonnaise-jelly sandwich joke fooled many


the joke worked.the bulls aired a video during wednesday’s game against the raptors showing nikola mirotic getting his teammates to try odd food combinations in a segment called “nikola mirotic's kitchen.” the video showed mirotic making a jelly and mayonnaise sandwich and dipping oreos in orange juice.not surprisingly, nobody liked the concoctions.at least the bulls labeled the video "weird food combinations." robin lopez's feigned look of disgust said it all.the video went viral and even prompted paul pierce and stephen jackson to try the sandwich on espn’s “the jump.”but later thursday, mirotic posted to his social media account that “it’s just a joke.”bulls fade in 4th quarter of 124-115 loss to raptors »kris dunn's maturation includes accountability, win or lose »the top storylines fa






bulls reach terms with restricted free agent nikola mirotic


negotiations took longer than both sides anticipated, but the nikola mirotic saga ended sunday in the manner that everyone predicted.mirotic will report to monday's media day activities as a bull. the restricted free agent forward agreed to a two-year, $27 million deal that contains a team option in the second season, two sources familiar with the deal said.mirotic, who will make $12.5 million in the first season of the deal, can't be traded to a team he doesn't want to play for in the first season, a source said.mirotic spent much of the offseason working out at the bulls' practice facility. he will challenge bobby portis and lauri markkanen for the starting power forward spot in training camp.mirotic, acquired by the bulls in the first round of the 2011 draft, has averaged 10.8 points in






bulls' nikola mirotic out with two broken bones in face after being punched by b


starting power forward nikola mirotic will miss thursday's season opener and be sidelined indefinitely after getting punched in the face by bobby portis during a practice altercation.the bulls released a statement saying mirotic suffered a concussion and "maxillary fractures" and that "surgery is likely required." one source said mirotic had two broken bones after portis connected and could miss up to three weeks. he has since been released from the hospital.the bulls said they are evaulating disciplinary action, but portis is almost certain to draw a suspension.with mirotic out up to three weeks, it's uncertain how coach fred hoiberg will handle his lineup. one possibility would be to start rookie lauri markkanen.regardless, the incident puts a serious damper on what the bulls had called






bulls' nikola mirotic intent on salvaging erratic season with strong finish


as a second wave of reporters surrounded nikola mirotic in the bulls locker room after his strong performance wednesday night against the pistons, he was more than happy to keep the answers coming."hopefully i will see you guys again next game," mirotic said. "i'm looking forward to that."that could mean a second consecutive performance like the season-high 28-point output on 12-for-15 shooting mirotic put together in the 117-95 win against the pistons that kept the bulls' postseason hopes flickering.the big effort came in mirotic's third consecutive start, quite the departure from two weeks ago, when he couldn't get off the bench — and out of coach fred hoiberg's doghouse — for three games. mirotic didn't let the benching get him so down that he was out for an extended period."i've been a






bulls, nikola mirotic remain hopeful on striking free-agency deal


the bulls and nikola mirotic have found common ground — their desire to keep their three-year relationship going.to this point, the two parties obviously have yet to agree on money or else a deal would've been announced almost immediately as free agency began at 11:01 p.m. central last friday.that's when the bulls and cristiano felicio, the team's other restricted free agent, agreed on a four-year, $32 million deal that the reserve center can sign when the moratorium ends thursday. like in the felicio situation, the bulls had plenty of preliminary time to gauge mirotic's market before free agency began.since the bulls can match any offer mirotic receives, they appear to be taking a hard line on salary and length of deal. basically, the bulls are negotiating with the philosophy that if miro

bulls q&a: will the bulls ever lose again? did they 'win' the trade with the tim


typing this the afternoon of the magic game and, according to nikola mirotic, the bulls are never losing again. but still you all have questions.please list the order of players most likely to be traded. and if they do trade nikola mirotic in january, what do you think he’ll net in return? — jordan, libertyvillei’ll preface by saying i would guess the bulls make one trade tops. and here is how i’d guess at the probability: robin lopez, mirotic, justin holiday, bobby portis. mirotic’s play has created quite the debate. he is, after all, only 26. and it’d be very unlikely you’d get equal value in a trade given how the entire league knows about what happened between him and portis and how his camp initially responded. plus, mirotic was available last february and throughout an extended restri






nikola mirotic breaking silence a means to an end of his relationship with bulls


in terms of awkwardness, nothing topped bulls forward nikola mirotic accepting teammate bobby portis’ apology from six weeks ago without actually informing portis.“we are teammates, we are the same team, we are fighting for this team, we both are going to do what we need to do to make it work (so) yeah, i do accept the apology,’’ mirotic said wednesday at the advocate center.does bobby know that?“i guess he will know now,’’ mirotic said.and the bulls’ strange social experiment continued with mirotic publicly breaking his silence exactly 43 days after portis broke bones in his face during an altercation in practice. mirotic, dressed comfortably in a tan sweat suit, spoke for 14 uncomfortable minutes. he could return monday against the cavaliers and guard lebron james for four quarters and w






after fight with bulls teammate bobby portis, nikola mirotic now might be open t


the mess that is the bobby portis-nikola mirotic saga continued thursday.as has been the case since portis drew an eight-game suspension for breaking two bones in mirotic's face and causing a concussion with an oct. 17 practice punch, it overshadowed the on-court happenings as the bulls avoided their first 0-4 start in 10 years with a 91-86 victory over the hawks.first, coach fred hoiberg said mirotic didn't get cleared via the league's concussion protocol after visiting a specialist on wednesday.then, sources said mirotic's camp has made clear to management that mirotic wouldn't veto a trade, a change of heart for the forward who long has professed his and his family's desire to remain in chicago. mirotic has the right to veto a trade because the two-year, $27 million deal he signed in re






bulls' nikola mirotic eager to get on with his season


as far as nikola mirotic is concerned, all he did this summer was make good on his longstanding vow.remember, until bobby portis concussed him and broke two facial bones with a punch, the fourth-year forward always said he wanted to remain a bull. mirotic said it all last season, as his name landed in trade rumors, and he said it throughout his extended restricted free agency before ultimately re-signing.the oct. 17 incident that drew portis an eight-game suspension and placed mirotic on the shelf until friday, when he’s set to make his season debut, may continue to test that desire moving forward. but during the summer, when he skipped his spanish national team commitment to put on 20 pounds of muscle, and this week, as he worked extra to prepare for his debut, mirotic believed he was hel






nikola mirotic continues his march resurgence


try to imagine nikola mirotic saying the following five weeks ago."i feel that it's my time," mirotic said following another 28-point outing on thursday, his third in four games.heck, try to imagine mirotic saying it three weeks ago.shopped aggressively before last month's trade deadline and inactive as recently as march 12, mirotic continued his unlikely resurgence against the cavaliers. he has sank 20 3-pointers in his last four games, three of which he has matched his season-high with 28 points."i'm very happy to be here," mirotic said. "i want to make an impact at the end of the season. i want to be in the playoffs. that's all."the bulls are one game out with seven to play. if mirotic continues to play at this level, they're a different offensive team.gone are the pump fakes and the in






nikola mirotic's contract structured to be easy to move for bulls


if the bulls choose to trade nikola mirotic, his contract is easier and more attractive to move than the common perception.it has been widely reported, including by the tribune, that mirotic would have to agree to a trade by virtue of the two-year deal with a team option he signed as a restricted free agent. that’s technically true — but only if the bulls don’t pick up the second-year option before trading him.if the bulls exercise the team option first, mirotic no longer has veto power and can be traded anywhere that a deal is found. thus, the bulls are in the strong position of negotiating with teams with both options.they can dangle mirotic as an expiring contract if that team doesn’t want the option exercised, although mirotic would have to agree to be traded to that team in that case.






bulls win 4th straight, down jazz 103-100 behind nikola mirotic and kris dunn


in case you didn’t hear, nikola mirotic is back.with every game, the forward’s resurgence — and comedy routine — continues.“should i make another prediction?” mirotic said playfully before the bulls’ 103-100 victory over the jazz on wednesday night at the united center.that’s four games and four victories since mirotic returned after missing 23 games with facial fractures and a concussion from bobby portis’ punch in practice. mirotic’s play is harming the bulls’ draft lottery chances — the bulls passed the hawks on their way out of the nba cellar with the triumph — but still is sublime to witness.“i’m playing with a lot of confidence,” mirotic said afterward. “some of you thought i was joking. but i was not joking. i was very, very serious. i told you we were going to be 4-0. we have to ke






bobby portis apologizes to nikola mirotic: 'i'm wrong for what i did'


bobby portis publicly apologized to nikola mirotic saturday evening, his first comments since fracturing two bones in mirotic’s face and concussing his teammate with a punch during a practice altercation on tuesday.the bulls suspended portis for eight games. mirotic, whom the bulls said also acted as an aggressor leading up to the incident, is out for four to six weeks.“i’m wrong for what i did,” portis said outside the bulls’ locker room. “i want to publicly apologize to niko. i feel like i let my fans, the bulls organization and most importantly my teammates down. this is not who bobby portis is.”portis said he has both texted and called mirotic but received no response. he’s optimistic they can repair their relationship, which featured mirotic again winning the starting power forward po

nikola mirotic returns to bulls practice — but avoids bobby portis


given that there’s little if any precedence for a teammate concussing and breaking another teammate’s face with a punch, monday seemed to fall right in line.as the bulls practiced at the advocate center, nikola mirotic first sat in the trainer’s room and then lifted weights in the background, his first time rejoining his teammates since bobby portis drew an eight-game suspension for his oct. 17 punch that caused the above damage.nevertheless, portis said he still hadn’t talked to mirotic, who has told management he doesn’t want to share a locker room with portis moving forward.“i’d react normal,” portis said, when asked what he’d do if mirotic approached him. “i’m a normal guy. i’m a high character guy, low maintenance guy. i’d welcome him in with open arms.”portis has apologized to miroti

nikola mirotic inactive as bulls try to snap 4-game skid vs. celtics


after dropping out of the rotation the last two games behind newcomer joffrey lauvergne, nikola mirotic's bulls' career reached a new low sunday afternoon when he landed on the inactive list."this season has been hard. it’s been very difficult for me to find a way to enjoy the game," mirotic said. "there are a lot of reasons. one of the reasons is me too. i understand that. i assume that part. i only hope that right now we can win some games and be in the playoffs and be ready there for whatever they want from me."the bulls took a season-high four-game losing streak into the matchup with the celtics. the bulls started sunday in 10th place in the eastern conference, having dropped behind the heat now too along with the bucks.starting lineupsbulls: jerian grant, dwyane wade, jimmy butler, bo

bulls blow out kyrie irving-less celtics 108-85 for third straight win


as nikola mirotic stewed over having his face broken by bobby portis’ oct. 17 punch and the early part of his season ruined by losing his starting job, the bulls needed the passage of time.they needed it for the once-toxic situation between mirotic and portis to normalize as much as possible. and they needed it to resuscitate mirotic’s trade value.monday night proved the latest positive development on all fronts. mirotic and portis may not be speaking off the court, but they continued to show chemistry and support for each other on it, combining for 47 points in the bulls’ 108-85 victory over the eastern conference-leading and kyrie irving-less celtics.and the bulls’ third straight victory — and mirotic’s third straight positive contribution — will only intensify efforts to trade the sharp






that’s some motivation the bulls found


your recommended daily adult serving of snark:apparently, the only thing the bulls needed to get their ball movement and team floor game in order to beat somebody was suffering through a nationally televised humiliation. that’s some professional preparation right there, mister.dwyane wade scored 23 points, shot better than 50 percent from the floor, and still managed to finish as a minus-16 against the stench that is michael jordan’s hornets. that’s quite a trick.after a week of being benched and declared inactive, nikola mirotic made eight baskets for the first time all season, including five of 12 threes. he finished with 24 points after wade and jimmy butler apparently had a talk with him before the game. that’ll help fred footwipe’s credibility.so, the bulls are going to use games to d

nikola mirotic, kris dunn lead bulls to win in their final game at bradley cente


upset by officials, robin lopez had to be restrained by assistant coaches so he didn’t pick up his second technical foul. bobby portis screamed in giannis antetokounmpo’s face following a justin holiday dunk.even with 16.9 seconds left, kris dunn tackled khris middleton from behind as they battled in the post, leading to ejections for both.these bulls continue to play as if they didn’t get the memo on the rebuild, typically competitive and combative to the final buzzer.“we believe,” nikola mirotic said.and why not? that’s eight victories in 10 games following tuesday’s 115-106 staredown of the bucks in the bulls’ last trip to the bradley center. twice in 11 days, the bulls have bused here, been the aggressors and exited victorious.“we are playing aggressive,” mirotic said. “it’s all about

"and he had a good appointment with the doctor and will see the doctor again in two weeks. so it's a great sign that he's making progress."still, mirotic has yet to change his stance on not wanting to play with bobby portis after portis punched him in the face during an oct. 17 practice altercation. that gave mirotic






bulls win 4th straight, down jazz 103-100 behind nikola mirotic, kris dunn


in case you didn’t hear, nikola mirotic is back.with every win, the forward’s resurgence — and comedy routine — continues.“should i make another prediction?” mirotic said, playfully, before the bulls’ fourth straight victory wednesday night at the united center.that’s four games and four victories since mirotic returned after missing 23 games with facial fractures and a concussion from bobby portis’ practice punch. mirotic’s play is harming the bulls’ ping-pong ball chances but still sublime to witness.“i’m just trying to play my game, make the simple play,” mirotic said. “i’m playing with a lot of confidence.”it shows. drawing his second straight start for the injured lauri markkanen, mirotic scored 29 points as the bulls downed the jazz 103-100.“niko’s back,” kris dunn joked in the oncou






back as starter, nikola mirotic is focused on strong finish, not impending free


two words stood out from nikola mirotic's lengthy pregame media session after he re-entered the starting lineup for saturday's late tipoff against the jazz."it's crazy," mirotic said.so is this: it's the 19th lineup used by coach fred hoiberg this season. and that volatility is based more on performance than injury.so many shifting roles certainly represent an unconventional way to make a playoff push, a notion the bulls are clinging to despite entering with seven losses in eight games and in 10th place in the eastern conference race.perhaps only rajon rondo's turbulent season can rival that of mirotic's. the bulls fined mirotic for uncharacteristically forgetting about and missing a pregame walk-through, aggressively shopped him before the february trade deadline and now must make a decis






bulls q&a: nikola mirotic's future, how to fix this team and more


it seems fitting readers filed so many questions since this season has been filled with uncertainty. it’s hard to say which bulls team shows up game-to-game.is it a foregone conclusion that nikola mirotic is gone this summer? he is still wildly inconsistent but will they try to keep him on a team-friendly contract or just let him walk? — nate, denveras i’m sure you know, he’s a restricted free agent. so the bulls can let the market help them make the decision. that they shopped him so aggressively in advance of the deadline tells you most of what the guess at his future in chicago should be. but free agency can take unexpected twists and turns. if there’s an offer sheet he signs and it’s late in the game and the bulls feel it fits in their salary structure, i suppose there’s a small chance






nikola mirotic looks to return friday: 'i'm not angry at anyone'


with his season debut imminent, likely on friday, nikola mirotic is positive.“i’m not angry at anyone,” mirotic said. “i’m doing fine with myself. my family is great. there’s nothing to be angry about now. it’s all over. it’s a new beginning.”the first “it” refers, of course, to mirotic missing his 23rd straight game wednesday because bobby portis concussed him and broke two facial bones with a punch on oct. 17. both players have made clear they will remain professional on the court but haven’t discussed the incident off it. they did exchange fist bumps on the bench during wednesdays game with the pacers as mirotic dressed for the first time this season.like portis, mirotic is focused on playing. and coach fred hoiberg said if mirotic navigates thursday’s practice and friday’s morning shoo






nikola mirotic remains out of rotation — and likely bulls' future plans


not playing by coach's decision in two straight games is one thing. not playing when the bulls use a 12-man rotation is another.nikola mirotic is on the outside looking in, and it's hard to envision a scenario in which he's back with the bulls next season. mirotic, who will be a restricted free agent this summer, has dropped behind joffrey lauvergne currently as management has emphasized looking at young players acquired from the thunder in last month's trade."we'll see how the flow of the game is going," coach fred hoiberg said when asked about mirotic's role moving forward.that's typically code for "he's not playing" in hoiberg-speak.mirotic is averaging 9.1 points on 38.8 percent shooting, including 30.2 percent from 3-point range. those are all three-year lows for a player management s
