Nikola Mirotic doesn’t seem like he’ll be a member of the Chicago Bulls much longer.
ESPN.com’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported earlier this week that two sides are still fixing for a divorce, and that the 26-year-old forward held the Utah Jazz in special regard. Well, the Jazz apparently feel the same way. They’ve spoken to the Bulls about a possible Mirotic deal, and according to Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune, talks are getting pretty serious:
The Salt Lake Tribune has confirmed that Utah is engaged in talks with the Chicago Bulls on a deal that would bring power forward Nikola Mirotic to Utah. Jazz forward Derrick Favors has been discussed as a potential piece that would go to Chicago, according to multiple sources.
Other reports Tuesday suggest the Bulls want a first round pick ascompensation for Mirotic, something they have inquired the Jazz about.
Nothing is done on either side, but talks are past the preliminary stage and getting serious. ESPN.com first reported Utah’s interest in Mirotic on Monday.
