There is less than a month before the start of the NBA regular season and Nikola Mirotic still remains unsiged.
The Bulls have offered the sharp-shooting big man a $7.2 million qualifying offer that he can either accept or become an unrestricted free agent. With camp starting soon, Mirotic will be forced to make a decision on the offer if he wants to practice with the team. The Bulls have all the leverage and may be waiting for other chips to fall in place with a Dwayne Wade buyout. Despite inconsistent play last year, Mirotic will be a primary option to put up inflated stats on a depleted Bulls roster.
