QUOTE
Danilo Mitrovic, Montenegro National Team director, on Bulls draftee Nikola Mirotic: "In my opinion, Mirotic is a bit angry at the Spanish Basketball Federation because he was not on the National Team for the Olympics. His place was given Serge Ibaka and this is why he was probably upset. I tried to contact him, but I could not get ahold of his phone number. I contacted FIBA, where I was told that the Mirotic must submit a request in writing and that way get a permission to play for Montenegro National Team. When he was registered by the Spanish Basketball Federation, there were many irregularities and the Spanish Federation had to pay a fine because of that." Kosarka.si


If he's angry at the Spanish Basketball Federation could that possibly mean he'll wanna come play in the US sooner??? If we cant work out a deal with Taj and or Boozer gets amnestied next year it'd be nice to have him on the roster.

If we have any bilingual people on board heres the full article http://kosarka.si/bo-nikola-mirotic-obrnil...l-za-crno-goro/ ...report back if theres any other news in the report.

PS...I was gonna post this in the Mirotic thread but for whatever reason I can't go back to previous pages.

What were the specs again? Wasn't it just 5 mill to buy him out and 5 mill for his actual contract??

There's a filter on the bottom right of the page that allows you to search for posts. The default is anything from the last 30 days. You can set it to 60 days, 90 days, etc. Then, you'll be able to see other pages of threads.

It's not that simple. There are several issues...

1) His buyout is $3.149 million.

2) He's making about $4.5 million a year in Spain.

3) The Bulls CAN NOT simply pay his buyout. They're capped at a certain amount they can contribute without reprecussions. After that, they need some form of creating cap space to go over it, AND it would be subtracted from the amount they'd be able to pay Mirotic. For 2012/2013, that number is 550k, meaning Mirotic would have to come up with the rest.

3) He was a first round pick, so he's tied into the rookie scale contract (which is like $1.1 million). They can't just pay him whatever they want.

Basically, he'd have to take a huge paycut and pay out of his own pockets to come here in the next two years.

The absolute earliest you're likely to see him is 2014/2015, at which point the Bulls would have the option to sign him as a normal free agent. However, to do that they'll either need the full MLE (IE be under the tax) or have available cap space.
