Bulls Set to Sign Nikola Mirotic, Could make getting Carmelo More Difficult.
Nikola Mirotic recently bought out of his contract with Real Madrid as hoopshype is reporting and the Chicago Bulls are set to sign him. The cap space required to sign Mirotic will make it more difficult to sign Carmelo Anthony, however it is being reported that this does not mean the Bulls are out of the pursuit of Carmelo, just that it poses more difficult. Recently Carmelo met with the Lakers, Mavs, Bulls, and Knicks. He was offered the max by the Lakers ($97 million) and the Knicks ($129 million). The market has been said to be "frozen" outside of role players, until the big 3 and Melo make a decision on where they will play next year.
