Report: Bulls Shutting Down Nikola Mirotic Until Trade Deadline

The Chicago Bulls have decided to shut down Nikola Mirotic until the trade deadline passes, as they continue working to find a deal that makes sense for both sides.

Coach Fred Hoiberg confirmed the front office’s decision Wednesday night, saying Mirotic was with the team for its game in Portland but was sent back to the hotel prior to tipoff.

“I got a call today, and the decision was made to not play Niko tonight,” Hoiberg said. “That’s all I know at this point. We will reassess tomorrow.”

The Bulls thought they had a deal done Tuesday that would have sent Mirotic to the New Orleans Pelicans, but Mirotic and his representatives nixed the arrangement, according to a source, because the $12.5 million team option for the 2018-19 season would not be guaranteed.
