Anybody better informed than me know if Berger is credible? I'm having trouble believing Mirotic is cool with $3-$4M per, but if he is, more power to him. Would certainly make bringing him over a lot simpler.
Further, if the Bulls are under the cap, they'd only have their $2.7 million room exception to bring 2011 pick Nikola Mirotic over from Spain. League sources say Mirotic would be looking for a deal in the $3 million-$4 million range. (He's no longer governed by the rookie scale, and the Bulls have planned for needing the bulk of their non-taxpayer mid-level exception of $5.3 million on him, sources say.)
