Pistons exploring trades; reportedly interested in Nikola Mirotic

12 January 2018

He is now leading the team by posting a career-high 17.4 points with 48.6 percent shooting from the field and 46.5 percent from beyond the arc with 7.0 rebounds per contest.

Normally, players who sign new contracts in the offseason are eligible to be traded on December 15, but Mirotic was part of a small group of players who not only signed a new deal, but also received at least a 20 percent raisefrom a team that was over the salary cap and used Bird rights or Early Bird rights to sign them. If the Bulls pick up the team option on Mirotic's two-year deal, which includes a no-trade clause for the first year, he won't have the power to veto a trade now.

On Monday, the first day Mirotic was eligible to be traded, reports surfaced that there was mutual interest between the Utah Jazz and Mirotic.

And one team that is reportedly interested in trading for Mirotic is the Utah Jazz. There's a team option, also for $12.5 million, for 2018-19.

Since returning from his facial injury and concussion from the altercation with teammate Bobby Portis, Mirotic has stepped up to become the Bulls' most reliable scorer.

That was only because I picked the upset in the late game, as neither of the Vegas line favorites managed to win. Afterward, some Vikings players accused Saints players of trying to knock Favre, then 40, out of the game.

So, in order to get a nice deal out of some players that may actually be helpful to some contending teams heading towards the postseason, we're going to let you know about 5 deals that tanking teams should just go ahead and do already before it's too late.

Under the guidance of head coach/president, Stan Van Gundy, the Pistons are trying to win now.

The Mirotic news comes as Leuer continues to recover from a severely sprained ankle on October 31, which caused him to miss the last 31 games. The team has had to use the 6-8 Anthony Tolliver at backup center at times.

Mirotic can't technically be traded until Jan 15, but even that's an early than expected target date for Mirotic to be moved. "When you're down a starting point guard, there's not a lot of people shopping their starting point guard to you".

It has been announced that the Detroit Pistons and possibly the Portland Trail Blazers are also looking to join the hunt for the capable stretch-four big man.
