Pistons Reportedly Eyeing Trade For Bulls' Mirotic

Nikola Mirotic is playing the best basketball of his career, and teams are apparently taking notice. However, Mirotic can't be traded until January 15, when restrictions are lifted as a result of him signing as a restricted free agent over the summer.

Mirotić is now averaging 17.4 points, 7.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists in under 26 minutes this season, and he's shooting 48.6 percent from the field, 46.5 percent from beyond the arc, and 75 percent from the free-throw line.

Things allegedly went sour between Mirotic and the team after how the organization responded to his fight with teammate Bobby Portis, which left him hospitalized.

The Jazz are engaged in talks with the Bulls on a potential trade centered around Nikola Mirotic, according to a report in the Salt Lake Tribune.

With 2 Golden Globes And 17 Million Subscribers, Hulu Has Arrived
The SVOD leaders have performed well at recent award shows, but the 2018 Globes were their most dominant showing yet. Even with the added skinny bundle TV offering, Hulu is about one-third the size of Netflix in the U.S.

Mirotic has been able to provide the bulk of this production off the bench while he has shown to be a more effective player in the starting lineup averaging 25.0 points on 56.3 percent shooting from the field and 47.4 percent from beyond the arc with 8.3 rebounds in three starts. The incident left Mirotic hospitalized with a concussion and facial fractures, causing him to miss the first 23 games of the campaign.

Mirotic would be a great fit for either Detroit or Utah.

Keep an eye on the Utah Jazz, who could be quite active at the trade deadline.

Across the board, Mirotic is having a career year. With the Bulls floundering with one of the worst records in the Eastern Conference, it could push them to make a move to acquire additional assets to build around their core group. The team is still without Rudy Gobert, who has only played in 18 games so far this season.
